Curse You, Technology!

I can't believe what just happened.

I just lost almost two hours of work on the second post in my Velkomin til Íslands travel series. I'm absolutely gutted.

While finishing up the tale of our first night out, I had searched for some information on one of the places we went. Clicked on a link and something froze up that browser session. Impatiently, I pulled up the task manager in an attempt to get rid of it - and, instead, it killed all of my browser sessions !!

Gone. Unbelievable. I haven't got the energy or spirit to start fresh again, tonight. I'll have another go at it tomorrow... perhaps saving it a few times along the way, you know, just in case.

Instead, I'm going to do something decidedly untechnological - have some leftover pizza.
