Watching the excellent Bulls/Wizards play-off series is a funny critique on a societal lie: that if you put in your best, you will succeed. It seems that a lot of people still don’t understand that life is not fair, and sometimes successful results are misinterpreted as extraordinary ability.
In SharePoint 2013 Microsoft released HTML master page functionality. The default out of the box minimal master page makes use of PublishingRibbon, which is far less flexible than SPRibbon.
