Could someone in the Rails developer community please create a webmail application that periodically saves what I’m writing?
I have this habit of spending a painstakingly long time writing emails and by the time I’m ready to send it, my session times out and I pretty much lose all of my eloquent and thoughtful prose. I know, I know, I should be frequently saving it as draft, but my brain doesn’t work that way and imagine I’m not alone in this. And hey, I’ve used a few webmail accounts in my day and it’s clearly an area that needs improvement.
What I’m after is the simplicity and usefulness of Basecamp, with an autosave feature that backs up what I’m writing every 2-3 minutes.
I mean come on, that shouldn’t be so hard, should it?
