Dedicating to Web Dev for 6 months

So now that my cosplay endeavors are over for a while, I'm going to spend some time on heavy development on PaperDemon and other projects.

I have some other website projects that will need code from PD. So I'm working on making it easier to customize and reuse.  I estimate to have the majority of my planned work done in about 6 months. Once that's done, I'll get back to working on my multimedia projects.

I'm really excited about jQuery. I just got a lesson from a colleague at work and I'm totally reved up about it. I can't wait to start doing some awesome ajax and dhtml work with jQuery. I wish I had learned about this a long time ago. Currently, I'm using the Sarissa js library. But jQuery is so much better. it has such a better structure. The code is easier to understand and will result in you writing less lines of code. And the things it can do with the DOM are amazing. Why couldn't they have designed Javascript to function like jQuery from the start? It's so unfortunate that Javascript had to be such a poorly structured language. Traversing the dom is rediculous, not to mention all the weird browser compatability problems. Gah! But jQuery will solve ALL of those problems.
