Figure out a REPEATABLE PROCESS that ends up with you having a reliable backup copy of the whole group of open tabs SOMEWHERE that you can go back to if needed – one you can do in an instant – figure out that series of steps that works with your brain, do it a bunch of times, delete, recover, delete recover until you’re confident that it works.

  • What people who don’t do this don’t understand is:
    This _is_ extended brain.
    Losing the open tabs is losing an active part of one’s own brain. There’s NOT ENOUGH ROOM in the brain to hold it all, so we use the open tabs to do it.
    It’s not stored and archived projects: they’re ALL ACTIVE NOW and need to stay just as open as the brainmatter is.
    Did you know when you use a tool like a hammer, your body schema changes to include the hammer as a physical part of your own body while you use it?
    That’s what happens with the open tabs. They are a part of your brain according to your own brain. They could probably measure it. It’s normal to include your tools as part of yourself. And loss is like amputation because it is.
