Google docs ate my presentation

It’s tempting.  Just click here and create a presentation.  No need to install powerpoint (or open office).  But don’t do it.

I was about 3 hours work into a presentation, and Google docs decided to crash.  It saved regularly, so I felt comforted, but guess what?  My presentation doesn’t exist anywhere except as a broken link in Google’s system.

Not only was it the presentation, but about a half page of commentary on each of 14 slides.

  1. I did get it back later, though for a while it was completely inaccessible, from multiple computers. I downloaded as quickly as possible and used powerpoint to complete it. Coming soon, “An open source QA stack”
