Write a simple DHTML page with one centered div, height 200px, width 200px, that is blue, on a white background.
When clicking on the div it should slowly grow to 500px (width) and then shrink to 200px, and repeat this motion until it is clicked again.
Do not use 3rd party JavaScript libraries in your solution.

10 minutes of playing around... of course it will be up to you to make this work in the browsers you need to support, but it's an idea... I've only tested in IE7.
<html>
<head>
<script>
var page = {
  active: false,
  action: null,
  reference: null,
  speed: null, 
  initialize: function () {
    document.onclick = page.onClick;
  },
  onClick: function () {
    var o = event.srcElement;
    if (o.id === 'box') {
      if (page.active) {
        page.action = 'shrink';
        page.active = false;
        page.speed = 20;
      }
      else {
        page.speed = 3;
        page.active = true;
        page.action = 'grow';
        page.reference = setInterval(page.adjust, 25);
      }
    }
  },
  adjust: function () {
    var o = page.find('box'), 
      w = o.style.width || '200px',
      i = parseInt(w.substring(0, w.length - 2), 10);
    switch (page.action) {
      case 'grow':
        i += page.speed;
        if (i >= 500) {
          page.action = 'shrink';
        }
        break;
      case 'shrink':
        i -= page.speed;
        if (i <= 200) {
          page.action = 'grow';
          if (!page.active) {
            clearInterval(page.reference);
          }
        }
        break;
    }
    o.style.width = i + 'px';
  },
  find: function (id) {
    return document.getElementById(id);
  }
}
window.onload = page.initialize;
</script>
<style>
* {
  margin:0;
  padding:0;
}
body {
  margin-top:100px;
  text-align:center;
}
#box {
  background-color:blue;
  height:200px;
  width:200px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1">
 
<div id="box"></div>
 
</form>

Well if the author is not going to comment on that I will...

Nice effort. Doesn't work cross browser but I still admire your work. I would help out and write one that works cross-browser, but it doesnt seem as though it would be used, and you deserve the points anyway!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

A couple of small tweaks and this works for me in FireFox 3.0.1.
<html>
<head>
<script>
var page = {
  active: false,
  action: null,
  reference: null,
  speed: null, 
  initialize: function () {
    document.onclick = page.onClick;
  },
  onClick: function (e) {
    var o = (e) ? e.target : event.srcElement;
    if (o.id === 'box') {
      if (page.active) {
        page.action = 'shrink';
        page.active = false;
        page.speed = 20;
      }
      else {
        page.speed = 3;
        page.active = true;
        page.action = 'grow';
        page.reference = setInterval(page.adjust, 25);
      }
    }
  },
  adjust: function () {
    var o = page.find('box'), 
      w = o.style.width || '200px',
      i = parseInt(w.substring(0, w.length - 2), 10);
    switch (page.action) {
      case 'grow':
        i += page.speed;
        if (i >= 500) {
          page.action = 'shrink';
        }
        break;
      case 'shrink':
        i -= page.speed;
        if (i <= 200) {
          page.action = 'grow';
          if (!page.active) {
            clearInterval(page.reference);
          }
        }
        break;
    }
    o.style.width = i + 'px';
  },
  find: function (id) {
    return document.getElementById(id);
  }
}
window.onload = page.initialize;
</script>
<style>
* {
  margin:0;
  padding:0;
}
body {
  margin:100px 10px 10px 10px;
  text-align:center;
}
#box {
  background-color:blue;
  height:200px;
  margin:auto;
  width:200px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1">
