OK, I have been spending the past month doing the tweaks and nip/tuck to my layout and making sure it validates. I think I finally have it. The layout is nothing too special, I guess, it's the blue-fade stylesheet with some modifications. But all my content is in place, including a link to a miniBB and a Coppermine gallery. Hacks and plugins include the ViewLevel plugin and the weather hack. I am going to add the last visited hack as soon as I have the time.
