I’ve lost two blog posts today. The first one was because I did something stupid. The second was because MoJo’s blog software ate it. I’m tired of this.

So this is a plea for help. Can anyone recommend a good, simple Windows key logger? I don’t need anything fancy, and I don’t need to monitor other people’s computers. Just my own. All I want is something that logs keystrokes to a file so that if I do something dumb, or the power goes out, or Drupal goes crazy, all I have to do is retrieve what I wrote from the log file and reconstruct it.

Any recommendations?

UPDATE: OK, I guess we can skip this. I’m already aware that writing in a different window would solve most of my problems with lost posts. For various reasons I prefer not to do this, but obviously it’s an option.
