That drop in your stomach when you don't save 3+ hours of work and you lose it all..

Damn right :'c
Not often for me but yeah.
No, you know what's worse? When the bloody program won't LET you save at all! That happened to me on Sai a while back. It was quite discouraging.
My shit has auto-recovery, so if some thing happens (crash/shutdown/ect) it will have a thing saying "choose ones you want to save Date/Time" And yeah.

It can be easy to forget to save, especially when you get really into it and get idea after idea and lose track of how much time has passed. Plus sometimes I'm guilty of "gambling" my chances by deliberately not saving too often when the file size gets too big and the saving process becomes painfully slow :yawn:  don't want to spend more time saving than working :p

Luckily it's a problem I got on my last computer more than this one, Maybe I save more now - or maybe technology doesn't suck as much as it used to =p

Sometimes I save every three seconds and the next minute I'm drawing for an hour straight without touching the save option. :P

Gawd, tell me about it; the place where I live is prone to frequent and unexpected power outages, so it wasn't uncommon to be in the middle of something on my computer when BAM...screen goes black and there went all my work!!!
Dear gawd, it'd drive me to tears sometimes...T-T...but I learned my lesson and now I save EVERYTHING, important or not, several times while I'm working just in case.
