Lo! This site finally validates. I couldn't sleep last night so I decided to figure out why this site wouldn't validate. One typo prevented the validator from completely parsing these pages, so I couldn't find all the errors (and there were some stupid ones). It seems that I forgot a double quote in my doctype line and the validator really didn't like that. Of course, the typo was made in my main template and thus propagated throughout the whole site. Once that was fixed I found unescaped entities and a few other nasty bits. Here is a tip: Javascript's single quote does not behave like PHP's single quote and validator knows this. Thank you to the good folks in #web for pointing out my mistakes.

Other than that, I have had some ideas in relation to the gallery I talked about previously. I am still debating if I want to try and take the time to write it before next semester, though. I would really want to complete the project (well, mostly) before the next semester starts if I decide to do it. That is basically all that is holding me back not knowing if I would be dedicated enough to crank out a quality product so quickly. There are a lot of things that I want to do during this break and I suppose I will just have to figure out which ones are most imperative. I have a sneaking suspicion that the least productive things are going to win the day.
