Just spend about 30 mins filling out the editor application form. Got to the end and clicked on submit only to be presented with a 404. Clicked on back and the form was blank. Ok. What are the odds on them getting it?
Is there a chance Word may have autosaved and left something in your temp folder you can salvage? Assuming you have it set up that way. It's a long shot (I'm not sure how long those backup files hang around), but I once managed to get back half a file from there after I stupidly deleted it.
