Hey WordPress, well fucking done

So I don’t know if wordpress somehow scour the site for comments about them, but just in case –

The magic auto-save thing I only just noticed, where it knows if the browser has a newer version of a post than the properly saved version, that is fucking cool.  Well done clever people.

I don’t know if it’s connected to the layout changes that just happened, and I have no idea if you’ll see this, but just in case you do, I’ll say it.

And why I’m really posting, for everyone else, what happened was I just had a jam posting, and got an error message about it failed to post, but after I proof-read and before I saved.

And we all know how I fucking hate proof-reading.

So that was annoying.  I just assumed I’d lost all the changes.

But no.

Instead there’s a message about the version in my browser being newer than the saved one, and did I want to use that, and I said yes, and it all came back.

Like fucking magic.

I realize I sound like a dick, but this is probably the single coolest tech-related surprise I’ve had in fucking years, since, I don’t know, ever.  It’s simple and elegant and something actually useful you don’t know you need until you need it

Unlike changes in say, Windows.

So yeah, I’m a cynic and hard to impress but that one actually did it.  Fucking cool, wordpress.  Fucking cool indeed.
