TabWalk To TabDancing To

This is a new pet project….to capture screen images with content that are significantly valuable for future reference. The essence is in the composition of the visuals and textual information, together with the timing and events that supports its appearance on our screen as we see it…only once and then gone forever.

I am doing it on my own whenever I can find time between meetings and paperwork but it would be nice if anyone of you out there whom is also interested to join me in this “search and save” effort.
