Well that just happened

I’ve always read about how people are typing things then *boom* power outage/pc crash/etc.

Always thought “Why didn’t they save it as they go or use something like google docs?”

Well. I use notepad (I like the simplicity for this…) when TLing.

Went out today for a long list of errands (yay being my family’s errand runner~) and came back to my PC being off. Like the genius I am, I didn’t do the simple action of Ctrl+S.

1/4 of the LDM chapter gone… egh. At least I remember most of it? It’s still pretty dang annoying.

Just thought I’d share. Going to try and finish it before the day is out, but GAH! That was annoying.

If you don’t hear from me (well, see the chapter) before the night is out–

–hope you had a good day~

      1. my god i really wana read cheat receptionist haha but i know it would take forever…. tbh i think if that happened to ya during TL for GCP u would for sure table flip am i right? ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Egh, yeah. I love that novel so much.

          I want to work on it more, but other series stopping me from spending much time on it. All donators seem to want the other two more so I go with those haha

  1. I have had the power go out on me one too many times, (although that was years ago now) I make sure to have battery backup power now, just in case.

  2. I mean you could always turn off the donate button to TL what you want, but then that’s just ew. I mean I like Forsaken Hero the most, but you do you.
    Also, cmon man why didn’t you saveeeeee

  3. Thanks for the update.

    You can try this site for a more robust notepad:https://notepad-plus-plus.org/
    I haven’t tried it myself so….

    Don’t know what kind of web browser you use but here on firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/quickfox-notes/
    Just an idea I believe there are addons for other browser as well with the same setup. This could save you time and your work I believe.

    Hope these come in handy or give you an idea of what kinda program you could supplement your notepad.

    1. Ah, I already have that. The main reason why I use the standard notepad is due to its lack of features. Idk, it helped speed up my workflow when TLing.

      This… was an unfortunate event.

      1. Ah.
        Well I thought the addon would have been a nice addition specially with the autosave. But if it didn’t bring it back up when you turn your computer back on then I guess not much you can do about it. Reason why I like google docs, simple and saves every word and will never lose it. But yeah some of the features for it are kinda annoying lol.

        Can only hope it doesn’t happen again and if it does, then when you just started the TL and not toward the end cause that would definitely suck.

        1. Yeah.

          I was able to retype the sentences at least. Didn’t lose too much time… most of the time lost went to doing errands. Planned to spend all of today on TLing, but looks like that will happen tomorrow instead?

          Well, if LDM isn’t finished tonight — and at this point looks like it won’t be — I’ll still try and have the DB chapter out with it.

    1. Haven’t progressed farther since the end of last week, still working on the second guaranteed chapter (this ldm ch) before I sink some more time into GCR.

      After that is DB and LDM extras

  4. I don’t know since when, but I have that habit where I always Ctrl+S for every 10-15 sentences typed. So when I got a blackout, it won’t…. hurt that much ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Why not use M$ word? It’s not that different from notepad, and I don’t know how many times it saved me from things like power outage ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. I used to when I started tling, but somewhere along the line I tried out notepad for it on a whim and it helped improve my speed. Simple is better ^^
