Re: Twilight?

You forgot the "he's ugly" argument. Also, Well, I do not think he can write because he is too detailed and most of his stuff is about crazy clowns or kids getting hit by cars. Then again, he is famous, but has he ever made as much as Stephenie for a movie? No, most of his movies went str...

Re: Makes me want to visit Amazon.com more often

Good thing I wasn't signed in. I really don't want gay porn being on my recommended lists. Funny as hell though.

I'm nearly finished it and so far there's only been one mention of the word "twilight".

Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stuff)?

I have to confess that I am currently reading Twilight because I got morbidly curious as to why so many people on my favourite forums hate it. I also have to confess that I'm actually enjoying it.

Re: The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever

I love these books. Covenant is hard to like at first but he redeems himself throughout the series. You should check out the Second Chronicles if you haven't done so already. Most people will say that they're not as good as the First Chronicles, but usually that's because the Land has changed so muc...

Re: What is your favourite book?

My favourite books (in no particular order) are; A Scanner Darkly by PKD Time Out Of Joint also by PKD In fact, I went through a phase of reading nothing but PKD so let's just conclude that most of his books are up there on my favourites list. Also among my favourites are; The First and Second Chron...

Re: How many?

Holy shit you guys are fast readers! I'm more in the ballpark of one book of normal novel length every three months or so (that's how long it takes to finish it, not like I finish it in a week, and wait 11 more to start another one). I'm about the same. I'm a really slow reader. I envy people who r...

Re: Dan Brown

He can't write. Some may say his stories are decent, but his execution is simply terrible. One of the worst modern writers. Funny, I've just been reading a thread about Dan Brown's bad writing on the SA forums. I've never read him myself but the SA thread included some short excerpts from DVC (to s...

I'll probably get laughed at for this, but I recommend Java All-In-One Desk Reference for Dummies . It's a huge book but it's easy going and, for a dummies book, you'll be surprised at how in-depth it gets. I've got a few "starter" books on Java which were really dry and made me want to cr...

I learned Java as my first language at University. This was about 7 years ago now and I've forgotten most of it (the language itself has changed a hell of a lot since then anyway). I'm currently relearning it and I have to say it's a very powerful language and has a good set of libraries with which ...

As for the other thing. I'm sorry but you cannot turn Python code into something you can execute (well, technically there are some programs that try to do that, but they have limited functionality and in my opinion they're useless). Python is a scripting dynamic language. Python source cannot be tu...

Your second program doesn't work. After it asks to press enter twice nothing happens. As I'm still new to Java I don't really know what most of your code is doing :oops: .

The first program is great though.
