browser time-outs

Hi, I noticed an issue today that didn't seem to be addressed by the FAQ, and this seemed like the best place to post the problem and solution. Please let me know if it is not.

Problem: When posting via the web client, LJ users are told that the process timed out, so they post again. This results in multiple copies of the same entry.

Solution: This is a browser error, not a LiveJournal error. Copy the text you've just written and paste it into a text editor on your computer. Then go to the page you were trying to post to (your journal, a community journal, a comment to someone else's journal, etc.) and see if your post has arrived. If not, *then* you can try posting it again, but usually it shows up on the first try.
