In beloved memory of all our unsaved works of art, scientific breakthroughs, household spreadsheets, hours of practice and every document that has been lost in the eternal nothingness of cyberspace.

Here we mourn, because we believe everything has a right to be remembered, because our digital work has no physical remnants, no body, no ashes, no dust, and therefore can only be commemorated in cyberspace itself.

Ponder here on the hours lost, contemplate on what might have been. Leave your eulogy, cry, laugh, scream and let your work be remembered for eternity.

Word crashed, I accidentally closed the recovered version of the file
Dear resume, you made me look hireable. I hope to recreate you soon, but I know this copy will never be able to replace you in my heart.
FL Studio project
† 20-02-2015
Just exporting the finished track, when suddenly I had to go afk. When I came back, someone had shut the pc off and I lost the entire project. Yeah it managed to save the finished track, but I forgot to remove a drum pattern which ruins the entire track. F**k
RIP FL studio project. We will all miss you.

College app essay

Wrote in Common App prompt field - assumed it autosaved when it auto-logged you out. It didn't.
You were my pride, my joy, the best piece of writing I have ever been able to call my own. And you're gone, and so are my admissions to USC.

Purple screen of death... :'(
After spending a couple days mulling over what my next art piece would be, I finally sat down, Tablet and pen in hand. And I drew, for 10 hours straight... Then suddenly, poof! It's gone, replaced with purple... I guess I kinda deserved it though for using windows 8... Never again :/

an old computer at my school just went down
In this txt file there were only 30 minutes of work, but the computer crashing down, and the fact that there was no real text program installed on it which would have auto-saved.... My motivation went down and I didn't finish the paper which was originally due the week after for about two months and got a really bad grade.

A work that was created from my heart and soul
† 25-10-2014
I was far too enthusiastic about getting ahead in my work, that I opened one too many photoshop projects. After realizing I was being counterproductive by having so many projects opened, I started rapidly closing tabs. Alas, the project I was burdened with from the very start of this day was deleted...annulled...wiped clean out. *insert tears*

Oh blessed work, may you rest in peace, and may my macbook recycling bin be good to you.

Crashed out of life
I've known you for 40 minutes now, and we had our ups and downs.. Untill Photoshop suddenly decided to take you away from me. You're probably at a better place now, where you don't have to work. They say the good die young, but someone killed my darling....

May the project rest in peace. We'll take its ashes to the deep sea of the island of Santorini in October.
