    • It’s actually kind of fun.

      The language itself is kind of neat. It has hashes, lists, and closures, so you can easily speak Javascript with a lisp. It sure isn’t Lisp or Perl, but it’s quite tolerable. I’d rather write Javascript than PHP…

      And implementations across browsers now have a modicum of consistency, so you don’t pull your hair out all the time.

  • ord? Don’t you mean chr?

    ord does the opposite (take a char, return the codepoint).

  • I'm a little wracked out right now, but don't you want to mod 10 after mod 100 isn't 11-13? 122, after all, should be 122nd, not 122th.
