Error messages usually come with a line number, but the js exercise interface is stingy

Here's me running your code locally:

$ xsel -b > dipityg.js  # paste code to file
$ node dipityg.js       # run with nodejs
/tmp/js/dipityg.js:2
var computerChoice = Math.random(){
                                  ^
