Boy, do I screw *that* up...

Thought I'd be clever and surreptitiously add the robots to the cast page, which I did...

Except it seems I used the wrong version of the previous cast page, and when I saved it, naturally overwrote some of the later changes, and when uploaded, of course overwrote the only other copy.

Not a huge issue, lost some of the details I'd added like some of the "special ability" notes and 'favorite phrases'. Kind of a pisser, but no biggie.

Well, I noticed I still had a tab open that had the original still up- so I saved the entire page. Except that when I tried to fiddle with it in my (admittedly old) HTML editor, it said it couldn't be modified. So I opened it in Notepad, copied the primary text out, and repasted it into the old, recently-modified file.

Nope. The page got "saved" as a unique document- all the links to pictures and whatnot only work with the folder of pictures generated when the page was saved.

So I need to take the freshly-modified file, and manually make the changes for whatever got lost.

Again, not a biggie, but annoying as hell.

I'll fix it all shortly. Right now, I'm goin' to bed.

This might help you get some of the text back the page looks like it was last crawled back in April of this year.

Your editing ability does give you an edge in this.But only if I choose to believe you exist and are not part of some CIA drug induced hallucination!
