…you get when you realise your computer has eaten the college work that’s due in 5 hours.
I want to cry :'(
I’ve re-started it but just looking at the blank computer screen makes me want to give up.

When did you do it, or did you loose it while you where doing it?

@ladyartichoke: (((Hugs))) to you.
Was it in a word document?
Sometimes Microsoft word will keep a version of what was on the screen if the computer crashes.
I really hope you can get it back!

Thanks guys. It was a presentation on Keynote, and iWork doesn’t have an autosave feature. I think i just left it open everytime I went to work on it so never actually saved it, totally my fault (how many times do I need to be told to save my work?). Why I didn’t do it in Microsoft Powerpoint I don’t know, because I have it! I think I was in a bit of panic and whilst I’m rushing to put it all back together most of my work was to do with research not content so it could be worse. It was just horrible waking up this morning to find it’d gone. Hopefully I can blag it.

Oh no! I’m so sorry, I would totally cry. You’ll be fine and everything will turn out okay!

@ladyartichoke: Whew, it only took me once to learn the save-as-you-go lesson, but it was a BIG mistake that took me all night to redo, so I feel your pain! Good luck getting it finished 🙁

oh man i know that feeling. Its not the exact same situation since mine is work related but yesterday i was on the tail end of a project that i was finally getting onto my computer (all i had up to that point was the rough scrap papers and notes) and i had saved about halfway through (or thought i did) and the computers decided to take a crap yesterday. that was the second day the computers broke too, and the day before i lost work as well. i was finally able to log on to my work computer today just a little while ago and i found that the document was completely gone. So any work I had put into getting this thing ready to be turned in was completely gone. my eyes actually watered upon learning that. so believe me i feel your pain completely! and my deadline is 330 this afternoon. But really its more like 2 pm because i have to have time to get it looked at too before the final hand over.
ETA: and this is why im on weddingbee lol. I had that happen and needed a mental break. I had had enough.

This happens to pretty much every single college student at least once…I definitely feel for you! Hope you get everything finished in time. When this happens to me I just want to throw my computer out the window. One time, I actually did…
