OK, shoot me. I think I'm with Kor. I just spent all day and night using JQuery to put my site together. By the time I've recreated the functionality I have in my own framework+application I'll be even older than I am now. Much. Things like floating palettes and login/authentication, admin controls and reports, scrolling lists, tables, a generalized mechanism for viewing DOM tables of sql-tables (including joins and other goodies), etc, are tough to come by, and I've already done all this stuff. JQuery is kind of cool but the plug-ins aren't really quite there yet, I think. Although I don't have everything JQuery has in its core, and I probably won't support as many browsers (maybe), my framework is OOPS and clean and fun to use (especially since I don't have to go googling every few minutes for samples, explanations, or places to post questions).
I guess the other consideration is whether you want to join a huge group of programmers you don't really know (yet) and get into contributing and sharing code (plug-ins). I actually would like that, just not right now I guess.
So I am going back to my own framework once again, but I still have learned much from JQuery and might end up back again for all I know. I apologize to Kor but I still find your comments... well... who cares. Everyone's entitled to their own style I guess; codewise and otherwise.
