by the way he was a shitty manager. "someone" left my cake out in the rain. Dont leave this guy in charge of making a newspaper old. He will leave your infant child in a hot car to expire and sing dumb songs like "someone left my child in a car, dont know why it got so goddamn oven HOT"

This was *awesome*. It is too bad we don't have Pagan Flames archiving the things posted here - because otherwise, this post is like tears in the rain.

I would like to take this opportunity to apply a name to the event you described.

I kinda think my application of this Proper Noun is a nexxus of art and science.

Art is what we type into these incarnations of BBS. Science is the code developed by teenagers to present it back to a screen for others.

I call the situation of typing in a lengthy heart felt or science based (i dont use hyphens today) post, email, blog, whatever long content, ONLY TO HAVE IT EVAPORATE...

a(n) MacArthur Park.

What is a MacArthur Park? Quite simply, it is the result of typing in a very wordy, yet internally edited by the contributor, work of linguistic art by the same contributor, only to have a technological mistake or bug destroy it. Upon the author's realization that their hour long non-compulsory 500 word composition has vanished as a result of poor client configuration, server side errors, connectivity interruptions, or even substance indulgence, it is most likely that the very same author will abandon further comment, or, in lesser instances, post a generic statement, i.e. "I hate it when that happens." In reduced baseline expression this can be accepted as the author's way of indirectly saying "Fuck it".

My selection of editor nomenclature as MacArthur Park for this phenomenom is most likely a result of being born in the early 1970s.

Years and years of hearing the song and thinking "ITS JUST A FUCKING CAKE..."

A feature of commodore bbs packages like image and cnet and most notably cbase could be configured to dump the 8192 bytes of memory in the message editor space to a raw textfile. This was added as a feature simply because we were hosting boards in the states and the euros were phreaking to get to them and carrier losses were expected on every call.

I vaguely rememeber ABBS amiga being able to do the same. Its amazing how much guard we let down when the analog modem went out with the trash.

I'm pretty sure that Cit-86 and some of the other Sacramento Citadel variants would save your buffer on a carrier loss, eventually - too.
