I see you are one of the few people with Node.js experience.
I am taking over a project with a long history that has a lot of code written in Node.js. I have never worked with Node.js, but in scanning the code, much of it looks like jQuery or Prototype code, and displaying the views in a browser, and changing the paths of the .js files to their actual path, actually seems to provide some functionality. The view files, however, look like they are intended to be run within a framework, since there are not even CSS files called within them.
If you would like to do this, please accept the project, and I'll send you FTP access information.
