I had a nice essay going about information and sources, and a whack of the keyboard sent me off to a site I hadn't intended to visit and the post (all 400 words of it) off into bit-dust.  You'd think I would know better, having been a computer programmer ever since the early Cretaceous, but alas I fell victim to my own hubris.  I sort of feel cheated, as Coleridge did when his lovely dream of Xanadu was interrupted.

Technology is a fickle mistress.
