my goal for this vacation is to learn a bunch of new computer things and to work on my spinning. garrett and I spun yesterday ... my little brother watched me today and tried for awhile.

as for computer stuff: I'm going to undertake a major project now in JavaScript ... I've always hate JavaScript, but I think it's time I give it another look. I need it now so I might as well accept it and keep an open mind.

I'd like to try that some more if I can... Sure, I have no coordination, but this might help...

1) http://www.juggling.co.nz/

2) i'm mimicking the windows client's edit friends group interface in javascript, since every alternative I could think of using plain HTML forms sucks.

Spinning & JavaScript

...are both somewhat related to my latest crusade. I was going to put some JavaScript on my burning_man (the event that features the most spinning in the world) community page to count down the days until the man burns, only to discover that LJ doesn't support it.

Well, I hate to hear that anything is impossible, so I will try to see whether anything can be done to prevent people using JavaScript to get logins/passwords from cookies. There's got to be a good solution out there... Encryption?! Hm.
