DesireData makes it My documents, but it's a bug, as in it doesn't fit 
with what I wanted it to be. It ought to be My\ documents.

However, DesireData's [print] _does_ print it with backslash... even after 
it passed through the messagebox, as long as you don't edit the messagebox 
in the meantime (which is basically a save+load).
