So there I was writing a long post about the (still proposed) third runway at Heathrow Airport and the also proposed HS2 rail link from London to Birmingham and beyond.
It had taken a long time. It was almost finished. I was tidying up the wording.
At that point my browser decides to corrupt it and save the corruption.
So my text is no more. It cannot be recovered. It is a dead parrot.
Somewhere on my hard drive it is laid to rest in it's lead coffin. Slowly decaying to electronic dust.
And I don't have the will to spend over an hour and do it all again. With quotes. From scratch.
[Exit, weeping, pursued by a long string of expletives.]
