Hi Martin,

It seems to be nostalgia week. The goal is to have the user supply a 
name. Whether the text says untitled, Write.activity, execrable, or is 
left blank. The user will not be able to save until a title is supplied. 
There would be literally no 'untitled' or 'Write.activity' documents in 
the Journal.
