Online scoreboard recommendations?

With things only just beginning to fall into place I’m getting more and more confident I’ll be able to submit something I’m somewhat happy with. With less than 5 hours to go I’m not sure I have the time or energy left to look for a decent high score leaderboard. Do any of you fantastic, intelligent, beautiful people have any recommendations for me? The ideal would be something free with an easy to integrate javascript api. Thanks in advance.

Good luck to those still jamming and well done to those already finished!

    GameJolt has a nice leaderboard capability and API, but if I remember correctly it uses a RESTful / asynchronous interface. That can sometimes be a pain to deal with, since you never know when the request is completed, or the requests are serviced out of order (especially for their Achievement/Trophy system). I remember I had a game with two leaderboards (normal and hard), and I could never determine which result set was being returned. Plus, the last time I used it they really hadn’t ironed out all of the kinks of acquiring the player’s GameJolt credentials. For desktop apps, this required the user entering a token number and for web apps you could get it through some cryptic Javascript.
