That was close
My previous post (see below) was quite long. Just after hitting the Blog this! button (that’s what the button says), I decided in an instant to click back into the content entry text box, hit CTRL+A (highlight everything) swiftly followed by CTRL+C (copy to clipboard). All this while the next page was loading, over broadband.
That next page was the you’ve been timed out page. The annoying thing about my blogging software is that it doesn’t auto-save partial posts.
Imagine my delight when I could copy my clipboard into a second attempt. I think you can only imagine.
