kvetch kvetch javascript kvetch

Okay, all the times I have complained about Java? Multiply them by "annoying" raised to the power of "stupid" when it comes to JavaScript (which, despite the name, is no relation).

Seriously, who wrote this? The javascript runtime engine goes to enough trouble to auto-generate a Radio object that contains all the information for a set of radiobuttons in a form, and will let you programmatically alter their state and has event handlers for gaining and losing focus, but it doesn't bother to actually figure out what the current selected value is, despite the fact that that selecting it is, like, the entire point of radiobuttons even existing, and is therefore the single most likely to be used piece of information about the damn thing?!?

WTF! Dude!

Addendum: Who wrote this? Brenden Eich wrote this. He is a big dope.
