I need to vent a bit, forgive me.:
This is the most frustrating project I have had in a very long time.
I have been killing myself on it and have nothing.
That is at least 6 hours I could have spent working on any number of other equally or arguable more pressing projects. I do not know if I need to cry or stab my monitor but either way it has hit that point where even if by some miracle I make something attractive, I'll only see the nasty frustration put into and never want to look at it again.
