what is happening (more than likely, well for me it was true) is that
your script isnt working properly. I suspect that you are opening a
file, document, or whatever, emptying the contents with a view to
updateing it. However the script isnt updating it just emptying it.
This means that when you next come to view the doc. theres nowt in
there. This may be whats happening in your case , but without knowing
what your script does its hard to tell.

good luck
