ii. What Were Good At

HTML & CSS. Forged by hand.

Were control freaks in a way. Hand-coding a design into the languages of the web allows us to exert full command over every nook & cranny. There arent any goofy software assumptions getting in the way of our well-founded markup. Getting immersed in the nuts-and-bolts of code yields dependable results. What was that about you cant always get what you want?
