I bought a new hard drive and backed up the Marlowe story folder, and the neighbourhood folder (thankfully) before it decided to die. It was straight after I used the hard drive that this happened, so I think they may be related.
My computer guy says it sounds like the hard disk, whatever that is. So I'm taking it into him this afternoon and he's going to see what's up.
Kinda comes at the right time, as I was planning a hiatus for about 2 months, to focus on saving the money to move out of my parents place, and figure out if that's what I want to do right now or whether I want to save money and travel.
So yeah, you will hear from me soon, I may not have a computer, but I have a smart phone and the internet! ;)
