Oops I should have Saved Sooner

I am a newbie at Manila.
Sometimes when I key in a chunk of text then press POST at the bottom to
capture what I just edited, Manila seems to lose it. I get that standard
error message about the target web site not being available. Here is a
humorous web site based on that standard error message so you know what I am
Read the fine print & check out some of the links on the bottom.
Don't forget to right-click on the page too
There's other URLs that are like this & some day I will have a Manila site
that collects links to a bunch of similar "humor" like
I get different kinds of things happen to me in association with "this page
cannot be displayed" when I am at a Manila site.
I did a Refresh today & got
UserLand Frontier Server Error
Sorry! There was an error: Can't find a sub-table named "postArgs".
The error was detected by Frontier 7.0.1 in mainResponder.respond.
I printed the page & on the bottom was link
I pushed the back button on my browser & it was like it was ready for me to
start keying in text & had forgotten everything I had done. So I rekeyed it
& second try posted Ok.
On another occasion today after I tried to post something I saw on the bottom
where it went from 45% done to 38% done & the % climbed & climbed & then fell
back again ... it went around that loop several times.
I thought I was going to lose it again, but then the hour glass fell off the
post button & cursor returned to bottom of doc with text still intact & I
pressed post again & zoom everything came up roses.
My question is ... when this happens to me, what's the best way to avoid
losing what I keyed in, or am I just out of luck?
I am using some sites that were setup by my e-friend JT, that are for private
discussion between a small group of people at each one, for specialized
is discussing what's involved in a conversion between HP and IBM platforms
is discussing translating ERP objects such as error messages & help text from
English to Spanish
& we have other really interesting specialized projects we scoping out if
they are doable
After JT gets me trained good on Manila, I plan to setup a site that will
host Time Travel simulation games, a site where people link to various kinds
of humor, and I have other ideas for cool stuff to try.
