So, I was mapping out bits of The Story that Rainbow Brite Spawned using bubbl.us, and all was going well. I was working my way through the main characters, creating thought maps that put me in mind of neurons, with intersecting lines and bits branching off...all in rainbow colours too, appropriately enough. It's also quite interesting to see in communicative symbols the sorts of patterns my brain works in...it's far from orderly.
Whatever. I saved my work...got off the computer for a bit...had some food...came back...
And the damn program had erased well over half of what I did, obliterating three character profiles completely and a good chunk of the fourth. And this just when I was trying to figure out how to print what I had so far!
I is not amused.
Reinforces the old lesson, though: BACK UP YOUR WORK.
I should also add that it hasn't done this to any of my other files. They all seem to be intact and without any missing bits, which is probably good...perhaps it was a one time glitch. Either way, if you use the program, I suggest printing a few copies every time you're finished. It's just safer that way.
