jQuery be Gone

This site no longer used jQuery1. I only noticed that I was using jQuery after I ran some benchmarking tests on the site. The site did well in enough but jQuery contributed a significant amount of the load time.

After digging around, the only place that I found jQuery getting used was the "to-top" button in the bottom right corner. This seems a ridiculous waste of resources so the jQuery dependant code has now been replaced by some simple vanilla JavaScript.

Though part of me is tempted to remove it completely.
