      Rediscover javascript.
      Write a web application using Jaxer.
      Create a javascript binding for an existing java app, using jquery
      learn extjs
      or come to enjoy javascript as more than "that dirty scripting
      language people are sloppy with because they think that's the way it
      is" ;)

      Here's a start:

      var s = (function incrementor(start){
      return function(number){
      return start +=number;
      };
      })(10);

      alert(s(5));
      alert(s(2));
      alert(s(4));


      Thanks,
      James
