JQuery Bootstrap: Better than Sliced Bread

To put this in perspective, I spent the greater part of yesterday simply battling CSS and handling multiple resolutions when all I had to do was include this framework in my project and BLAMMO, insta-kill.

I’ve given up on the project, but I’ve considered it a lesson learned: use Bootstrap! You won’t regret it!
