Posting for the sake (not sake) (what?)

I’ll warn you upfront: this has nothing to do with sake (Japanese), but everything to do with sake (English).

Actually, this has nothing to do with anything. It’s a waste of time, yours and mine.

In fact, that’s how I felt for the last 30 minutes of the workday today.

You see, I typed up a document, saved it, plus it auto-saves. Word froze, I forced-close the app, and the recovered the last auto-save. Unfortunately, after an attempt to re-save the auto-save as my last-save, and then checking-in the document to SharePoint, it wouldn’t re-save as my last-save, I checked-in the document to SharePoint, and I lost the entirety of my labor.

After a time consuming check of the network snapshots of my lappy, and a few searches of the hard drive for said auto-saves, no luck could be found.

Although, my horoscope today did say that “a sizable sum of money could come your way today… probably as a surprise” and told me not to “gamble or consider any kind of frivolous investment for at least two months.”

Here’s to hoping Powerball is up my alley this evening so I don’t have to re-create that document in the morning.
