Today I spent 4 hours re-writing my input validation script. 4 hours, all of which had zero effect on what the user sees. Why do it then? Because the process flows more logically, and the entire script is only 2/3s as long as it was before. Which is good! What's even better is that it's more flexible now, it'll be easier to change.

I changed the way that the checkmarks appear, from images to background images. This gives me the ability to change the question mark to a slightly blue one when hovered over. Which is a nice change.

But that doesn't change the fact that I spent 4 hours to make zero changes to what is finally seen. It gives me a feeling of futility.
