My heart bleeds for Neil Gaiman, who recalls writing a really cool piece, only to lose it somewhere between his screen and the blog. Yes, Neil, we've all had things disappear into cyberspace; and it's always your best work. Sod's Law. And there are few things more inclined to make one seize a hammer and drive it through the screen in front of one.
