    $\begingroup$ Yes, it is public. $\endgroup$ – Gone Oct 14 '12 at 18:46

There are three main options, as far as I see it:

  1. You can keep a copy in your harddrive;
  2. you can email that to yourself;
  3. or better yet, use the email drafts to edit and add more.

  • $\begingroup$ @Bill: I meant the email drafts, I have clarified that. Of course the site draft system is far from being reliable. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Oct 14 '12 at 20:14
