<tip type="productivity" author="ken kogler">
Developing a website is hard enough. Don't make it harder on yourself by
having to re-do the same thing over and over. Try breaking your code up into
functions, subs, whatever... the more modular it is, the better. That way
you can re-use common functions across multiple sites. Pretty soon you'll
start to develop an impressive toolkit that you can use when building new
sites, which will save you time, which makes both you and the client very
happy. :)
