That hurt ...


For some reason my system's video card doesn't much like Facebook, and will crash if I'm using the mouse wheel to scroll though the posts (if I use the mouse to drag the bar on the side, not so much). Every so often it will get into a cycle of crashing and recovering, crashing and recovering, trying to re-load Firefox (read: Facebook - as it almost never happens on any other page), and then generating a BSOD.

Usually, this is just a temporary pain in the ass, having to wait for the computer to reboot, but every once in a while, when I get the system back up FireFox has lost track of where it was.

I think I had over 100 tabs open in three browser sessions ... ALL OF WHICH disappeared.

I had three projects (hence the 3 sessions) I was going to work on this afternoon and now have lost EVERYTHING that I'd been researching for them.

I really, really, really hate it when this happens. I have FireFox set to start on its previous state, but somehow whatever Facebook was doing to freak out the video card must have sufficiently scrambled everything that all I got was single FireFox tab.

Hell, it also seems to have wiped everything from FireFox's "memory", as I'm not getting my usual auto-fill hints. Crap.

I don't know what to do. It's going to take me HOURS to try to get back what I had up ... and ready to work on.

Days like this I wish I was still drinking ... because "crawling into a bottle" sounds like a swell idea right about now.
