    Don't rely on auto-saves! In Oblivion, quick-saves are a bad idea and Fallout 3 is a similar vintage. Always make hard saves where possible.

    Dude, I lasted more or less on autosaves for the entire NV play through. Obviously, I made hard saves, but when game crashed or I decided to quit near a gate, they loaded.

    Additional Fallout 3 Rant: Now it's crashing whenever I come by that trench thingy after Washington Monument. Great.

    to be fair the Mall entrenchment is also full of miniguns and spare hunting rifles.

    Strange, I have no issues when quick saving in Oblivion, Skyrim, FO3 & NV.

    Hmm, are you running any mods by any chance?

    Reloading quick-saves in Oblivion will eventually lead to save-bloat and frozen animations some weeks down the line, due to a small bug in the saving process which builds up and compounds with time. A facility like Wrye Bash can remove the save bloating, but it's better not to quick-save at all.

    No mods, and it appears that, oh look, now the game refuses to auto-save. And it's enabled in the options, I checked. Now, you see, I am kind of a forgetful person - if I get into a game, I might forget to make proper saves. Auto-saves are a nice safety measure in case I die due to doing something stupid, and prevents me from yelling like a fool.

    Ah well. I guess every time I hack/lockpick something or find a new place, I'll make a save. That should do.

    Wish I could delete my facebook account, but I need it to maintain what semblance of a social life I have. Stupid catch-22...

    I deleted mine and I haven't looked back since. My social life (such as it is) has not really suffered.

    It either is him or someone at the gay bar you probably frequent works in the NSA.

    Problem is, the social events I attend are almost always organised through facebook, and even when it's that easy to invite me it's no guarantee they'll remember. If I'm not on facebook, it goes from underwhelming social life to no social life.

    I might have, not sure. I did send a few out a couple of weeks ago, don't exactly remember who though.

    Unrelated rant;
    It's 3.36am, and the temperature is still over 30C. Good thing I have nothing planned for tomorrow (today), because I'm going to be exhausted.

    Only wimps and noobs don't hard-save. Fallout allows saving even when it is your turn during a battle against the mutants.
    'either or'?

    I hate the cold and it will get a bit worse (-7 Celsius in a week or so).
    Hopefully after that it will return to something more viable...

    Although some towns in the even more northern part of Greece routinely have -15 and currently less than -20, so it is still south of the wall here :)

    Has it been snowing as well or is it just cold?

    It snowed (very little) in this city a few days ago. It always snows in the more northern parts of the country in the winter. :)

    Can't really complain up here. It was really cold, but now some wind came out of the nowhere and snow's slowly melting.

    Too bad next week that'll be gone.

    I have too much anxiety to even contact friends on facebook, or try to add old friends from school onto it.

    I exercised too much, was exposed to the cold too much, and ate too little yesterday. Just woke up at 4 am and between my being cold in bed, a slight sore throat, and smelling my own suspiciously-like-sick-breath I know that if I don't get up and eat the remainder of the fridge I'm doomed to a cold. I really just want to go back to sleep. Ok here we go....
