The road to javascript

I wanted to learn javascript and wrote a small game with an old school look using textareas, that I'm glad to share:

Writing javascript is quite intuitive for a Python developer, even though I'm sure that there are many idioms and tricks that I did not know about (and the code I wrote is the stream-of-thought kind).  I'm somewhat disappointed as I thought javascript would be more standard across browsers, but there remain important differences, for example in the way Firefox and IE handle ranges in textarea.

I haven't tried the game on Safari or Opera, please let me know if it works!
