Heh. In my experience it was the 40- or 50-something middle managers
and graphic designers who insisted on everything looking 100% or 0%.
I always assumed it was because they were used to working with paper and
couldn't get over it.
Twenty-somethings were a hell of a lot more flexible. Still seem to be,
even as I pass into my decrepit 30s.
