  1. Looks cool.
    However, it doesn't quit if the user double clicks on the submit button.
    So just add a check to see if it running or not.
    This is accomplished by resetting vibrateIndex back to 0, and only starting a new Interval if vibrateIndex doesn't exist.
    Or you could just disable the button until it is finished.

    $('#activate').click( function(){
    if( !vibrateIndex ){
    vibrateIndex = setInterval(vibrate, interval);
    setTimeout(stopVibration, duration);

    var stopVibration = function() {
    vibrateIndex = 0;
    .css({position: 'static', left: '0px', top: '0px'});

    Test out your javascript skills with a simple quiz.

  2. nice work around Larry! That were some good suggestion to overcome the interval index from overwritten by the second click. There are other ways such as using an array or stack to keep track on the number of index being used and terminated. But yours is cool enough to simplify the process!
