Mother of the Internet, I appeal to you. My Magic Mouse is getting sensitive (as it's wont to do in a salt laden environment even though I'm 3/4 of a mile from the ocean but it's not like it's crazy yet) and it changes pages in a single (Kinja) page web app while writing responses! My response is still there, since the alert comes up to ask me if I want I leave this page, but I Can't See It! It's Gone! My life force focus for minutes has now been obliterated in a 200ms motion of random electrical events!

And yet, the message is still there. Somewhere. Because it tells me it is.


Anyone else familiar with the concept of "Gumption Stealer" as outlined by "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance"? It's like that. After a while, I don't want to play anymore. I mean, who would if you're playing a slug?

I suppose it's just a bad evening for responding. Which could be a good thing (maybe, probably not.) Maybe I need a sink and some water?

Update: it just ate an 45 minute response with pictures, data gathering and writing. Why.Would.I.Try.To.Contribute.

"Man.." {read: 'Person'} I'm getting really frustrated with this.
