At least one of my articles (the running article that I published earlier, that took me four hours to write) was destroyed tonight by the ScienceBlogs server when the IT people replaced a burned out memory module. Unfortunately, I do not have a copy of the finished piece since I had published it earlier in the day and I stupidly thought it was going to be fine. But NO! It isn’t fine, it was destroyed. To say that I am outraged is a complete understatement. Instead of wasting my time sitting in the library and writing all afternoon, I could have gone out drinking and I would have accomplished just as much by the end of the day if I had done so.
