Recalling Solutions

This is probably a stupid question, but is it possible to get a solution you have drafted back if you accidentally clicked out of the problem? I just spent an hour and a half writing a solution (seriously, this problem is worth it) to this problem and all I have to show for it is my dash separator: $\text{......................................................................................................................}$ Is it possible for an admin to find the text I created, or is my solution now just a ghost on my computer's hard drive?

Note: one of the things that is unfortunate about the new modal box system is that if you are doing something in a box and you click out accidentally, the browser doesn't give you the warning that "You have entered text on brilliant.org. Do you wish to continue?" and you (seemingly) lose everything.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Ok, thanks. I guess I'll rewrite it tomorrow.
