Sorry this is a bit unrelated, but the thing about her story, if Barnett was right: how can a married 16 year old Catholic girl can manage not getting pregnant for two years?

I have just spent ages writing up this thread and as I sent it I was logged off and my post vanished into the ether. Why does this happen? Is there no way of saving replies. I have wasted so much time this way. Cant write this up again. It takes too long, a waste of time. URRRRGGGG!!!

Miss Marple
Years and years ago, after having the same happen to me a few times, I learnt that if i was going to make a long post, longer than say about 40 words, I'd use the text editor that comes with the operating system and type up my post into the text editor first, saving it regularly as well. When I was done I'd copy the whole thing and then paste it into the forum's box for posts.

If you're on Windows then use Notepad and save as .txt - it's just plain text with no type of formatting (bold/italic etc). It's been years since I used an Apple Mac and I can't recall what it's program (that's app for the youngsters) is for making .txt files. If you're using Linux, well you'll probably know what text editor to use already.
If you're using some kind of Android tablet I have no experience with such devices. All I know is Android is built on top of the Linux kernel.

With Windows and Linux text editors it's ctrl+s to save, ctrl+a to select all, ctrl+v to paste, or of course you can use the mouse and find it in the menu, I find keyboard hotkeys work a lot quicker.

Wouldn't you know it - I also back up all my files. Another lesson learnt years and years ago. Making posts in text editors first and back-ups are a PITA but have saved me many a time.

Once you've made this .txt file the first time there's no need to delete it after making your post. Just keep it. It serves as a record of your posts. Just add to it each time you want to make another long post.

This has been Ozzy's tip for the day. You're welcome.

The native Mac equivalent is TextEdit, but you can also get a Notepad app for Mac as well - coincidental name: it's not a clone of Windows notepad, but far better. The shortcuts (ctrl+s for save, etc) are the same as on Windows.

Yes, type it on your computer first.

It's bloody annoying when it happens - and I should know.

But if you never get a backer for the film/documentary how else will we get to learn of your research into Gawen Sutton?
Seriously DJA, I don't want a few (short, as you yourself said) links here and a few hints there in Casebook posts. I'd love to read something like a Ripperologist piece by yourself where you put forward your case. It's got to be better than what I listened to recently, a podcast with an interview of an author saying he believes Conan Doyle did it! I don't know who was scrapping the barrel the most - the author for writing it or me for listening to it.
