Virtual Vital #3 update

Virtual Vital #3 is coming soon, but we've run into a little technical difficulty. Namely, that we had the post 98% written, went in to do some final add-ins and edits and Blogger 'poofed' the post. I don't know if you've noticed, but Blogger auto-saves every so often. In this case, I was working on the post and accidentally deleted all the text while trying to move something around. Blogger auto-saved, I hit back on the page and it was all gone.  Sigh.  So, helpful hint/handy tip: it can be a really good idea to compose your blog posts in your regular word processing program, then copy and paste into your blog site.  We're recreating #3 for you, and plan to post it in a day or two and it will be bigger and better than ever! The good news is that this gives you time to finish #2, if you haven't done so already!


  1. This is the perfect example of when it's beneficial to have a tool or two handy. Amy is now composing & saving her work in a Word document; I'm using Text Editor. If we wanted to work collaboratively, instead of on separate sections, we could have chosen Google Documents or a wiki. Although this incident was annoying, we'll be able to recreate the information without too much difficulty. Imagine if you were writing an important paper or a journal article! The more we know, the more possibilities of which we are aware, the easier our life becomes. And THAT'S the rest of the story.

  2. Looking forward to it -- love the RSS feeds and am having fun with my blog.


  3. Any word on when the next installment is heading our way?

  4. Sorry for the delay! I've been in Cape Cod for a week, and didn't get #3 quite done before I left. You should see it tomorrow. Again, apologies...
