Hello Mark,

It wasn't C-c C-k due to the first lost post, I have been very careful
with it. I can't recall the exact sequence of events, roughly:

I wrote the post and then C-x C-s but there was some sort of error so
I pasted the post directly into blogger instead. Then I came back to
that buffer in emacs and tried C-x C-s again to get the same error,
eventually I killed that buffer (I can't remember which command I used
to kill the buffer) and another buffer showed up showing the content
of another post and this buffer was killed by C-x k. I was in a hurry
to leave so I didn't check what's happening on the server until the
next day.

Best wishes,
