In Fairness, Though…

It should be noted, of course, that a custom-scripted (and/or fully optimized) solution can represent a decent investment at the outset. One way or another, there’s usually a cost involved. But as a web developer, I’d really love to see more clients start at Zone 4. Failing that, if they’re in Zone 1, I’d like to see a move to Zone 4 next — and only then to Zone 3, if desired. I guess you could say I’m simply not a fan of Zone 2, as I don’t see it as a sustainable solution.
