I WILL DESTROY YOU COMPUTER  
I was working on three icons last night for two different LIMS.  I was spending a lot of time on them.  I had done many many stages of background creation, coloring, textures, etc.  I Photoshopped for about an hour before I got too tired to work and decided to go to bed.  I just left Photoshop open, and it didn't occur to me to save the PSDs.

I didn't have time to get on the computer this morning.

Came home from work, made dinner, reading flist, la dee da, I will finish those icons.  Wait.  Photoshop isn't open.

COMPUTER INSTALLED UPDATES ON ITS OWN AND RESTARTED.  ALL LOST.

No worries, as long as it helped I don't need an answer ;)

Gahhhh! That is the worst! I had my photoshop crash last night but luckily I didn't lose much.
And I've taken to saving my PSD's multiple times when making graphics now because I live in fear of this happening to me!

I usually do save PSDs, just in case, so I think the real lesson here is "don't make icons after midnight when you're so sleepy you can't remember to back things up."

Ugh that is the worst. I'm sorry!
After that happened to me a couple of times, I started saving things (not just .psds, also .docs and whatever else I'm working on at any given time, really) every few minutes. Stupid technology!

What's really irritating is I had just changed my computer's settings to not restart on its own and to always ask me first! Turns out it was updates for my antivirus and I had only set it for the Windows updates. God. I don't want my computer to be autonomous. It feels like Terminator.

Best believe I saved it every step this time.

Orrrrr. ORRRRR. Does it feel like BSG? Which would be great, no?

Yup, I'll bet!

Well, great eventually, but at first it would try to kill my whole family and talk to me a lot about God.

(Delenn is suppppperrrrrr pretty in your icon.)

(Also LOL, is the black sea black.)

Well, but if it looked like Six, would you really mind? Honestly?

(I know, right? Not that she's not supppperrrr pretty all the time.)

(HAH OH MAN. Yesss. That tweet. I adore her.)

(I love how she's like, now I'm learning Turkish! Whee! Like, for real? Jeez, Mira, leave some smart for the rest of us.)

Thought so.

(Yes, right? She's probably aiming for world domination.)

I think that would inspire a rage in me that could not be contained. I would be like, "STAB ALL THE THINGS!!!"

Thank God it was just some icons, and not something I'd written. My flash drive crapped out on me once and I lost about 2500 words, and I actually ended up rage-crying in my car driving to work.
