More about this link

Doing the best you can with what you have.

Tog explains that you just may have to settle for some poor user interfaces if you are using today's web technology.

His example is creating a browsable interface of thousands of members of a mailing list. You won't be able to do the same interface that works for a GUI and a hundred item list. Some things do not scale.
