What's in a name?

The frustration to make everything awesome.

It's that certain feeling you get when you're deep into the flow of art, be it Photoshop Web Design, 3D rendering or just writing a riveting screenplay, the computer just abruptly decides to take a vacation on it's own terms locking up all of those lovely pixels you created. ... Arrg... buttons.... Ah window... time for a coffee break..
