[chirp_users] to save or not to save

We don't have to be stingy with disk space nowadays. I save everything
(well, almost everything) and I append date & time strings to file names
for version history. One time I didn't save, although I wanted to, was
when I was programming a mobile, and wearing pants with a fair amount of
synthetic fiber, which especially in our dry climate equals static
zaps. At one point I stuck the mouse in my pocket and it lost it (but
later recovered); I had finished modifying the program in the radio but
couldn't save it since the laptop was going wacko. Which I discovered
when I went back inside and tried to save. But the radio was OK; I just
had to read it back out the next time the guy was around. This is when
I switched to a cordless mouse.

It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.
