    Charging for a Rush Job

    Not surprising. They pretty much shut down 2 to 3 times a year, every year. Unless your paycheck comes from a branch of the federal government, you probably wouldn't notice.

As soon as you get a new art file, regardless of the name (final, final2, final_final_Last, etc.), move the old existing file to the "Archived" folder, then save the new file to the "Active" folder.
