The Day

Morning spent tidying stuff up in anticipation of the engineer, who has of course not arrived as yet.

The afternoon has been spent faffing with javascript. Julie was tempted by the idea of randomized links, so I had a quick play, and have ended up with something workable.

So far I've only encountered two annoying things - lack of autocomplete meant I spent twenty minutes trying to work out what I was doing wrong before discovering that getElementByID should be getElementById, and I also discovered that editing the value of a textarea in a loop is a bad idea - putting together the string separately and then updating the textarea at the end is vastly faster.

I doubt I'll need javascript skills very often, but it's been fun to have a play around with it.
