I have had good luck writing on the test system. I save often and keep
backups to boot. Yup, crashes happen. Oh well. Log it and move on <vbg>. It
is interesting that you had beta software crash hard near *your* deadline.
Seems maybe the beta program ought to be extended and your deadline move
accordingly ;?P

People do accept buggy software, I know I do. I have never worked for a
software company that thought it was releasing bug-free software <g>.
Running the beta software on a writer's system seems like a pretty good QA
test, doesn't it <g>.

P.S. Isn't weeping in your job description????
