So, my computer just froze. Whatever, no big deal. Except I start back up and open my browser (which I have set to open to last open tabs/windows) and it comes up to just the welcome page. Every single one of my, probably 90ish open tabs (yes I know that's crazy), is gone. Because apparently my History is gone too and all my browser preferences have been wiped. FUCK

Oh man, I HATE it when that happens. :( :( In the past sometimes when that happens if I "crash" 'fox on my own and restart it a second time, sometimes it recovers again. I maybe have also started keeping weird lists of links using stickies Notes. But that's just my crazy talking.

Unfortunately I don't use firefox and that prob won't work with my browser :/ I've had this happen before, but never so completely. Usually I at least have my history to back me up. OH WELL, I was able to remember a few of the things I was looking at and I needed to weed through my open tabs soon anyway to close some of them.

Ah that sucks :(

I was only thinking yesterday how much it would suck if I were to lose all of my (predominantly ST related) bookmarks.. I really need to back them up.

This made me seriously glad that even though my bookmarks didn't disappear (THANK GOD) that I backed them up awhile ago.

DO IT. If any one person's bookmarks can be saved because of this epic failure than at least some good could come out of it, lol.

When I start to have around 20 tabs open, this is always what I fear is going to happen. It makes me paranoid and I start adding URLs to my Read It Later list (a firefox app.) I feel for you.

Thank you!! I don't use firefox, but Read It Later has a way to use it through Opera. This should be perfect!
