Excerpt of article text...

As the holiday celebrations come to a close and we bid a warm welcome to 2007, the year of the Progress Bar, it seems only fitting that we take a step back and -- huh? What's that? Yes, I said the year of the Progress Bar. You mean to tell me you've never heard of the ancient system which assigns an interface element to each year in a grand cycle that allows each and every soul to find their place in the universe? Well, then, I'm going to set aside the original topic I was going to write about, "How to design a program guaranteed to net $10,000 the first month," so that you, too, can take part in this timeless wisdom.

You know the drill here: find the year in which you were born, and let the imparting of ancient knowledge begin.

You love cameras. You will willingly take pictures of random objects to use up a roll of film, just you can get the pictures developed for your album. Avoid Disclosure Triangles and Tab Panels; seek companionship from a Group Box or Progress Wheel.
