Today's post was eaten by a bug in the software. It was quite interesting. But I don't have time to retype it.

BTW... I thought today's strip should be placed in the trophy case. It was supreme.

Rita Mae,
People are not giving you negative votes because of any one comment. The negative votes are for your history of comments, I suspect. So often your comments include "I'm sick, I'm tired, I'm old, I ache", then you practically beg us for approval. It's a huge turn off.

PENIS seems to be the most upbeat thing you have to say. (ha, upbeat!, that was an accidental joke)

All that aside, I hope you enjoy your retirement. Your family should care for you, now. Don't expect us strangers to. We're not here to bond, most of us. I for one enjoy the lack of closeness the internet affords.

That's a good attitude! Now I hope you have a great weekend!

OFT operator finger trouble?

At the risk of being considered a redundant cry baby, and I know I am beating a dead horse, but I must ask..............

Why does KAMIKAZE have a minus 3, and ARGENBERT have a minus 2? Their posts were rather good, I thought. I wish someone could explain this to me.

Monday is a holiday, so I only have 4 days next week and the rest of today, then I'm gone, so it really won't make much difference to me, but I guess I am too old for change. I liked the old way better.

Sorry. I can't help being a cry baby. I am sick, tired, and older than dirt.

"bug", huh? I say "user error."

Dear Scott, Short and to the point, I Actuly think this post is way over the norme of you previuses post

Just kidding (I think)

Realy Scott, you say we should not ignore ideas that seem strange to us out of hand just because it conflics with our preconceived kowlwge, we ma miss something big.

See Exploring the solar system with propellers???? BAT !$%* CRAZY (maybe not)
Ok, reads crazy, but take a look at http://wjetech.50webs.com/#propellers (very short page), maybe a non conventional but simple idea may be practical.
Give it a minute of thought before invoking the law of conservation of momentum
Actually working model is available to all that wish to play with it.

2 kurtroedeger: bugberted.

2 craig (& scott): with onenote everything is saved instantly so you do not need autosave.

2 author: what exactly was interesting - the post itself or how "was eaten by a bug"? :)

~Bad luck - maybe you should redesign the website so that kind of thing doesn't happen!

My dog ate my blog post too.
May 23, 2008
I buy it.

i'm that kind of person.

annoying is it?
May 23, 2008
Does this mean that you will edit your future blogs in Word (which has an autosave feature)? Or, if it was Word that ate your post, are you shortening the time between autosaves?

If you had a real job, and tried this at work, well, let's just say that even Wally would then have a better job than you.

Hi Scott,

I don't think anyone will buy that excuse. Where are you headed for the Memorial Day weekend? I know you don't like the short vacations but it is the family thing to do. Relax and have some fun, hope to hear from you on Tuesday.

Yep, this was the best post ever. It would have solved global warming problem, finally settled the debate on evolution and brought peace to Middle East, while making everyone laugh to tears. And everyone who'd have read it wouldn't come back to dilbert.com ever again, for all of their office problems would have been solved and they would no longer felt empathic.

I also lost such a wonderful comment... All taht remains is this unwitty &^$( that by all means will be identical to all other comments for today.

So does this mean you're unhappy with the new site format? ;-) Just kidding! Out of interest, do you have to type your entries into a slightly buggy flash window?

Shoot, I just entered a great comment and then my computer crashed. IT was really witty and funny and had would have been the best comment on this site EVER, but now I don't have time to re-enter it.
