I found an elegant solution to a problem and put it in my server.js. I moved the computer to another room with what was probably in hindsight a worse internet connection and there I re-formatted the entire document and filled in some placeholders. For a moment I was reading and not even typing, when suddenly the error log lit up, and the whole document was scrambled and mostly replaced with whitespace.
Unfortunately I did not see that this affected the whole document at first, since only one affected line was scrolled onscreen. Figuring the glitch application had reached an invalid state, I entered “refresh” at the command line, which I guess lost all my undo history. I came back and noticed that the rest of my file had also been destroyed in the incident.
Do you know how to roll back my server.js file to the latest version that compiles? The project is named encyclopediaofcode.
Others have posted of awful experiences about missing features to protect the user from auto-save mishaps (in this case, not even a mishap of my own doing or on my end, but likely connectivity based). Count this as another. Code losses of any kind hugely impact my likelihood of continuing. Please let me know if I can revert.
