I want to see what my code is doing

I am taking an entry-level college class in programming. We are using Javascript "playground" that works within a web browser. I am a visual learner and the textbook and exercises are useless to me. We're only six weeks in and I'm in the weeds. Is there a tool that shows what exactly is happening at each step in the Javascript code? [more inside]

Web Hosting

1&1 Web Hosting has consistently failed to answer what I think should be a very simple question: given that they do not use per-account httpd.conf files, how do I set the my Alias and ScriptAlias variables so that the web application I want to use can work without my having to go in and re-script them? Thanks eversomuch -- I've been waiting months for a quality reply from them!

Home Theater on the Cheap

Assume I'm starting from scratch except for a 32" JVC TV with s-video input. How would you build a budget home theater for a multi-purpose room? Rather than get into my particular preferences (other than that I want to play DVDs, CDs and CD-Rs), I'd like respondents to make recommendations based on the variables most important to them (e.g., getting a cheap player and being indifferent to its picture quality because it's region-free; splurging on a center channel speaker because it's that important; insisting on a combo DVD-R/PVR regardless of price because it's such a killer app; going with simple stereo separation because surround sound is overblown, etc.). Specific product and retailer recommendations are especially welcome.
