Are you by chance a Canadian Student with creative flare who would like to possibly WIN $5000?
If you are, you should watch this:
It happens. One moment you are galloping along punching your keyboard like Commander Data of the Star Ship Enterprise and then the unthinkable happens – Your computer freezes. Ouch.
It happened to me recently, and after I wiped the tear from my eye, I lit a candle for the masterpiece that the world will never see. Farewell.
Try not to follow in my footsteps. I got caught up in the act of building and ended up taking my eye off the ball. The next thing I knew – it was time to start it all over again.
Write a sticky note that says “Save” and put it on your monitor. If you are feeling really ambitious, set some automated timers to pop up during an intense project. Either way, try to keep it top of mind. Auto save is great, but as a designer, you should try to make it a part of your process.
I hope that I learned my lesson this time.
