I need sample JavaScript programs

I am new to JavaScript and need to play around with a variety of working demo programs, in order for me to really "get it".

Can anyone please send me sample programs I can play with?

Last week a friend of mine wanted me to explain how to create a simple game using JavaScript. So I walked him through the creation of a 'Snake' type game. You are welcome to the source for playing with.

It requires jQuery. For all new beginners I would highly recommend a JavaScript framework like jQuery or PrototypeJS. These days I tend to use jQuery a lot. These frameworks help make your code compatible with the major web browsers. They also add a lot of really handy functionality like CSS3 selectors for accessing elements.
