I am going to hand you $35,000 and tell you to go buy a car. Nice, right? Oh, but by the way, you can only buy an American-made, four-door, blue sedan. Still nice… but a little limiting.

Easier to get excited about. Easier to get the creative juices flowing.
If you are designing custom master pages for a SharePoint 2007 site, be sure to make the width of your Quick Launch bar (a.k.a. left navigation bar) a minimum of 165 pixels.
