@chriscopley i finally debugged your code. basically i had to rewrite the whole thing from scratch to see what the differences where.
fix those things and let me know if it works. i've rewritten yours a few times just fixing those errors and it seems to work now. the += was what really caused the lack of advancement.
yeah, i'm planning on being at lab tonight. and yes, i want to go over css and jquery. i'm waiting for brook to post the slides from yesterday so i can see what you guys went over. was there anything specific you wanted to review for jquery?
(fyi. i'll probably smell like cough drops all night.)
