When I brought my files to work yesterday to work on them, I thought I’d just forgotten to drag the folder onto the thumb drive, since I was operating off of my “last version.” But when I got home, I couldn’t find anything to show that I’d ever done any work at all.
At first I thought maybe I’d deleted the other files and overwritten them with the ones from the thumb drive (essentially reverting to my last version), which is still a possibility, except that whenever I do that, I actually delete them, not just overwrite them. And there was nothing in the recycle bin from my game that was dated since December 16th.
The power also went out a few days ago, and I thought that maybe I’d left everything up without saving and just lost my progress. But Torque won’t actually compile and run anything without saving, so there was no way I could have tested everything without saving my progress. I can’t imagine that windows would have done any restore-point nonsense without informing me of it when I turned my computer back on.
The only other option is that I made the whole thing up. I’ve been pretty sick the last week or so; especially over the last three days. I’ve been going through dayquil like it was soda, and I’ve been so cold lately, I’m pretty sure I have at least a minor fever. When I got home from work today, my last memory before waking up curled in a ball on the bed was getting ready to go and take out the recycling- when I woke up, the recycling was still here, but I was dressed and ready to go, and it was two hours later.
But I wouldn’t have just lost time, I’d’ve completely fabricated ridiculously intricate memories of conceptualizing, programming, testing, troubleshooting, and finishing two major pieces of code.
I think I’m going crazy.
