Or just hit preview repeatedly, I think it might be easier to recover it by hitting back if you do that.

Though it would be a really neat feature if the preview function was replaced or supplemented with a "submit draft" button, which would automatically post the message in 1 or 2 hours or just whenever you get logged off automatically.

Hey, there is FLAC. Which, to be fair, at least last time I checked, is way ahead of ogg theora. Not to mention ogg tarkin.:lol:

But look on the other side of this, video has been hit with all sorts of DRM, and has been through a bunch of nasty format wars.
