    Much of Illinois, including Chicago, is being hit by various storms. Of course I turn off my computer the second we start getting intermittent blackouts. I turn it back on a few hours later, and my main games hdd has simply vanished. I thought 'no biggie'. It's a new mobo, the surge protector is actually getting some use, etc. So I reboot, and my E drive has magically partitioned itself in half! D: I couldn't access Steam, or any of my TF2M admin files. Now I'm freaked out. All of my hardware tweaking was wiped out as well. So to calm my nerves, I reclocked my cpu back to 2.7 and reset my BIOS configs. Upon booting, the hdd is back in full :D However, I am currently making a backup of all my main Steam files (maps, admin stuff) to my new and much better condition hard drive. The moral of the story; don't forget to make copies of important stuff.

    That sucks, all I lost was about 1 minute of work in hammer. Storming all day as well, I wanted to go out side but you know Chicago. ;) Also thats why I have a 1TB that is contently backing up everything.

    Every map of mine that DOES have the likelihood of being finished tends to lose several weeks' worth of progress due to some horribly inconveniently-timed anomaly with my hardware. The moral of the story; DROPBOX!
