    It's probably not something you forget to do frequently, but you might want to check the extension "lazarus". It's a form-recovery extension. If that or something like that happens (like a browser crash, or sudden power shortage), the posts have been saved on your computer and they can be re-typed in the text field from a context menu.

    Ok, you win.

    Until very recently I was susceptible to that, but have now split my 60GB OS hard drive into extra partitions.

    /dev/sda1 - Grub partition (only holds grub, approx 100MB)
    /dev/sda2 - swap partition (approx 1GB)
    /dev/sda3 - extended partition - rest of disk
    /dev/sda5 - Root partition (approx 15GB)
    /dev/sda6 - Root Clone (approx 15GB)
    /dev/sda7 - partition for dual boot or other linux distro to play with (approx 20GB)

    Of course, you still have to pause before you do anything with a partitioner!

    That's not as bad as I did. Imagine your fully updated Ubuntu system is on /dev/sda3 and you want to delete or format dev/sda4 for a dual boot so you delete dev/sda3 anyway... with parted nonetheless ("what did I just do?" I ask myself)
