    Good God, I hate Microsoft products!
    A little backstory here.
    In 2001 or 2002 I was in a computer lab with my fiance on the University of Delaware's South Campus.
    I was playing with a web browser and she was working on a term paper (in Word) that had to be submitted in about 1 1/2 hours.
    Her system locked up and when it was restarted no temp file for her document could be found.

    SO, here I sit on the DART Delaware Route 301 bus headed to a Human Resource Management class, and I can't find either of the two documents I was working on last night even though I saved them (but left up in Word 2016) when I went to bed.
    Even if this thing goes to sleep it shouldn't mess with the files that are active, and I saved copies, so I should have them OR at least be able to locate a .tmp file.

    BUT, hey, it Windows, so guess what? I am SOL.
    Hours of work down the drain and nothing but a lame excuse for my instructor.
    I'd like to strangle a Microsoft executive.

    How many times do you need to revise a program to get important kinks out of it?
    I think this stupid computer rebooted last night for an update (even though its supposed to ask first) AND that shouldn't trash saved content).
