Kynn has a good point, and one we have to remind other web developers of
sometimes: we (and by that I mean web enthusiasts, developers, and other
computer geeks) aren't a very good reference pool, since by definition
we're aware of the latest and greatest trends, and tend to have powerful
computers and up-to-the-minute copies of software.
