Picture this: you're writing a [something important] and your computer freezes up. You know that if you restart you'll lose only

I would probably try to snap a photo of the screen with my cellphone, then mail it to myself, print it, and type from the printed photo. Of course, with my luck I'd probably get a horrible glare and not be able to read a word.
