    Hangman in Ajax: How?

    After reading some books on Ajax, I want to raise the ante by coding a Hangman game that is in JavaScript, with the phrases being stored in some MySQL database.

    Looks like I have raised the ante too high and I don't know where to start. Any help?

    No better place to start than with learning AJAX, PHP and JavaScript from W3Schools.

    I thought that was a very interesting thing to do so I coded up a simple hangman game in Javascript with the html canvas element. As of right now its not Ajaxified because I don't have a DB running where I can load it from. That shouldn't be too hard though if your familiar with XMLHttpRequest and you setup a service to serve words.

    Here's the link to a blog post I just wrote detailing my crude javascript hangman game. Hopefully it will give you a starting point.
