So what happened to that battle report?

Today I was suppose to unveil a glorious Battle Report. Sadly the publishing of the content did not come to pass.

This short passage sums up what happened. Sort of ... not really.

In A.D. 2013

Autosave Fucked Up

Friends: What happen ?
hive_angel: Something set up me the bomb.
hive_angel: We get signal.
Friends: What !
hive_angel: Blog turn on.
hive_angel: It’s gone !!
Interwbz: How are you gentlemen !!
Interwbz: All your content are belong to us.
Interwbz: You are on the way to destruction.
Friends: What you say !!
Interwbz: You have no chance to restore make your content.
Blogger: Ha ha ha ha … (Blank Post)
Friends: hive-angel !!
hive_angel: Profanity!!
hive_angel: You know what blogging.
hive_angel: Move ‘BLOGGER’.
hive_angel: For total bullshit.

Apparently while editing a huge post the screen went blank and blogger's autosave function autosaved the blank screen and instantly lost hours of content. I lost the battle report, the comedy, and the story content. This sucked so bad as I ran out of steam a week or so back and picked it back up determined to produce good content I am known for. What started as a battle report bloomed into a full blown story driven post linking the previous game  and setting the stage for the next game.

I guess I should have been using a text editor, but having the pictures in the post draft helps a lot. For the most part blooger does not backup any of your content at all. If content is published it can be recovered somewhat, but the fact my content disappeared during draft edit means the content is gone like a fart in the wind.

My friend Masta Cheef gave some early sympathy which helped control my rage scale and I think upon hearing about the tragedy a little something died in him as well. He will wait for these posts and I really enjoy his compliments. It was to be my finest yet as there was report as there was so much content including history, story detail, unit information, and pictures. My friend I have know through XBOX Live also gave some sympathy, some good news of becoming a follower, and support by trashing fools in Halo 4. My wife said I can recreate the content and it will be better next time. For these good deeds I award the following medal.


I considered if I could recreate the content. The most important part are my notes and luckily I still have them. The pictures are safe and my ideas are still fresh in my mind as long as I can get them down before too long. The battle report is the easy part. The big question is it worth the time? I think so and if people desire the content ever more than me I will know for sure.

Oh yeah I know I have been away, I am not dead nor is this blog. My wife recently bought two copies of Dead Island and running around busting zombie infected skulls is some serious therapeutic fun.


  1. It just really, REALLY sucks. I've had that happen a time or two, but never on anything that I had worked on as long and hard as you did.

    Luckily video games gives you a way to vent the rage by killing people, just try to imagine that they're all wearing google/blogger t-shirts as you open fire on full auto!

  2. LOL... Broseidon indeed. Going to take some getting used to, Dropping 14 Year Old Fools isnt as easy as it was a week ago.

    Rest assured, if you post a battle report, we shall read it!

  3. Thanks.

    Cheef your idea of shooting people wearing google/blogger t-shirts never crossed my mind. I LOLed.

  4. Man, that sucks!
    When I know I am writing a big blog post I sometimes will write it in MSword or something then copy/paste the bulk of it onto blogger, add pics and make tweaks. Not much more work, but saves the bulk of it when blogger does crap like this.
