Fundamental flaw of ALL COMPUTERS is not making the stuff the USER CREATES more important than the operating of its own system.
In short, WHY THE F do we still have a SAVE button?
Every letter you type should be automatically saved and retrievable. It’s _not_ that hard. I type in this box here on FB. If I accidentally go out of this page, it’s gone.
Why is leaving the page more important than the words I type?
Why did the people that wrote the program that you’re depending on to save your words expect the program to work properly all of the time? Or the computer? or the electricity?
No excuses in 2015 for computers + programs to behave this way anymore. It’s a deep pet peeve of mine. I copy/paste everything I write elsewhere as I write it. I hate losing a single letter I write. I’ve lost much and it’s painful. I feel your pain.
Why ONE COPY?
If you make changes, overwrite your copy and change your mind and want it back, IT’S GONE.
We have to CHOOSE to save a new copy under a new name?
So stupid. They had this shit figured out decades ago on mainframes. On the VAX/VMS I worked on, files AUTOMATICALLY had a ;1 ;2 ;3 ;4 for versions.
So, MYDOCUMENT.TXT;1 MYDOCUMENT.TXT;2 MYDOCUMENT.TXT;3 would automatically be created. There was no ‘overwriting’.
ugh. Yeah, still pisses me off that we HAVE to think of this stuff. Computer should do it for us.
