Ok, after a few months of designing nothing, I decided to dive right into learning Javascript. I went to W3schools.com and took the crash course there on JS and wrote a script to print a random word/picture each time the pages loads. (Seen below) My question is, Could I have done this coding a different way with the same results? (ie shorter script, different commands...etc) I've very new to coding, so any help you gurus can give would be great.

quote:
<script type="text/javascript">
var n=Math.random()*10
switch (Math.floor(n))
{
case 0:
document.write("cow")
break
case 1:
document.write("baby")
break
case 2:
document.write("wheat")
break
case 3:
document.write("grass")
break
case 4:
document.write("mop")
break
case 5:
document.write("mook")
break
case 6:
document.write("bull")
break
case 7:
document.write("cat")
break
case 8:
document.write("dog")
break
case 9:
document.write("dust")
}
</script>

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.
