I just composed about 95% of what would have been a lengthy post about fascism, socialism, a book called The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, intellectual property law, and sociopolitical systems in general. It was probably in the range of 1500 words of text before I accidentally middle-clicked to paste some text just about three pixels too far to the left, causing Firefox to try to navigate to a webpage by way of the text I’d pasted. The composition interface for WordPress apparently doesn’t allow the browser to cache text that is being entered, unfortunately, so the “back” button did not recover all that text.
I might take another whack at writing it, later, or I might not. For now, the motivation went up in smoke with the loss of all that damned work. Suffice to say I swore a lot.
