Literals, variables, and brain ache

I’ve always been of the opinion that you can do what you set your mind to. Yes, it might take a little bit longer than an expert would take, but it’s doable… until I decided to write a smidge of javascript.

Now I remember why I gave up sciences in favour of the arts. Now I know why great mathematicians and programming bods are all in their teens. In fact I’m wondering if I really have a brain at all. Sheesh!

I create beautiful eBooks and print titles, daily. HTML I’m fine with… but Javascript, not so much. Blond jokes aside (besides, my hair has darkened as I’ve got older), I feel I should be shouting ‘Hea-ulp, hea-ulp!’ an fanning myself with a, umm, fan. 😉


Several hours later: Yes! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!!!! My smidgeon of javascript works! It works I tell you! 😀
