CTRL+S

Some time ago, i was working at the BlueCo, in a program called MS Excel. My computer- to be honest- was by far not the best one, and the files i was managing were – to be honest- huge. The programs kept shutting down unexpectedly and thus i, to counter this problem, developed this skill: CTRL+S every 10 seconds.

And it helped. While saving  MS Office Browser windows, Explorer windows, Picture viewers….

But skills have this characteristic of depletion over time. Too bad, because a  CTRL+S would have been very handy today, 10 seconds before my Word Document shut down and there were no other versions of my file available….

It’s a good thing i have a good memory. It is a skill i use daily :)
