Exactly.  Even though I took Mike's original more or less as-is and
just added a couple of things,
I still got my fair share of errors.  With my memory I *always* end up

The console messages help enormously.

As does syntax highlighting.  I'm awful at counting parentheses, and
luckily I never have to do it.
