f0dder - I don't know what an "atomic save" is, but I have had my kids pull the power on the PC randomly in testing EN as I was typing and somehow everything I had typed up to the shutoff was held in integrity, so some kind of "save" was afoot.
Even if there are no crashes on your end, has anyone ever lost a post because the server was reset (or any other reason) where you lost a post? Again I'm not trying to spam EN on anyone, but I have also never experienced anything negative in using EN. I was just hoping to help others avoid the hair-pulling frustration of the darker side of computing and be more productive.
"Atomic save" means you don't touch/modify/fsckup the original file until you're 100% sure you can't fail (and thus corrupt data). Usually it's done by saving to a tepmfile, and when that's successful (and disk buffers are flushed), you delete the original and rename the tempfile (yes, I still need to implement this myself in fSekrit
, I'm such a lousy person).
And yes, I've had a browser crash/timeout/whatever, which is why I compose longer forum posts in Notepad++ (until I pull myself together and find a decent bbcode editor), along with the It's All Text!
