Yet Another Glitch

Has this ever happened to you?

I was just starting to type an answer to Phoebe’s interesting comment about AMF (“American Manufacturers of Fun!”) forcing its employees to play in an after-work bowling league when her comment utterly disappeared, lost forever. It seems either my cursor wasn’t where I thought it was, or else I wasn’t hitting the keys I thought it was, and the stupid computer interpreted that as a command to make the comment go away.

I have no idea at all why this happened. It’s happened before. Makes me wonder where the comment went. Heaven knows.

I was going to say, “It could be worse. You could’ve been working for a company that manufactured truncheons.”

Makes you think about the, er, wisdom of any scheme for hooking our brains up to a computer.

  1. Lee, Phoebe’s comment was sent to me in a ‘new comment’ notification. If you’d like, I can email it to you so you can include it in the post

    1. Oh dear. Well my only other suggestion would be that I could copy and paste it with a note that states it’s Phoebe’s missing comment, that is, if you and she would like. Crazy computer stuff!

    2. Well! I found Phoebe’s comment and restored it. Somehow it wound up in the Trash bin. I don’t know how, but at least we’ve got it back.

  2. There are keys on my keyboard that if I hit them accidentally will do the craziest things to my text (like erase a letter while I type one). I just hit the escape button a bunch of times and that usually fixes it. i have a Geek Squad subscription if all else fails.

  3. if humans were meant to interact with a computer, they would have been born with an interface to machines, instead of to God.. And now Elon Musk wants.to help us “evolve” by implanting a chip under our skin. hmmm.
