From the code on the right, can anyone see why I'm getting the error on the left?


From the code on the right, can anyone see why I'm getting the error on the left? I've gone through the video countless times ...and.... perhaps I'm just too sleepy to see the syntax error. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks folks!

All I can tell you is that it's on or near line 41. But since from what I can tell, there aren't 41 lines in the header ( maybe there are, i don't know because it's an image and I can't scroll through the source ).

Though &args seems pretty obnoxious to me. That should probably be $args

BAHA!!! Look at line 41. It's an ampersand and not a dollar sign! What a dork!! ;-)

Thanks Justin! I think I'm understanding that that the error is in reference to a parenthesis, but what I'm not seeing is where the error is. Does this help to see the code better?
