What do you keep? | DesignNotes by Michael Surtees

What do you keep?

.flickr-photo { border: solid 2px #000000; }
.flickr-yourcomment { }
.flickr-frame { text-align: left; padding: 3px; }
.flickr-caption { font-size: 0.8em; margin-top: 0px; }

What gives you enough satisfaction that you give away. What do you pass on to people that can do something more with? Those are things I’ve had to deal with lately.

I knew eventually I would have to give them up. It’s only a waste when you don’t get anything from what you read.
