    Like if i take those courses, will it help me?

    In a vacuum, continuing your education, expanding your education, or learning new things is rarely a determent.

    On the other hand, if the question is, "will the program I linked to be enough to get me work as a programmer?", then the answer is "probably not", for reasons that have been covered in some detail. Programming is a discipline. It must be learned, and this takes time and it takes practice. If you get one thing out of this thread, it should be this: you can do it, but it's going to take a lot of work, and anyone who promises you a quick way into programming is simply lying to you.

    fair enough, as far as discussion value goes it may be limited, is there a place for links of random one time entertainment value or is this something better suited for outside the site?

    Was there entertainment value there? I must have missed it.

    Try using .equals for String comparison. x!=y tells you that the two items don't have the same address on the heap, !x.equals(y) tells you that x's class considers x not equal to y. That is, .equals is defined in terms of the semantics of the class, and what it means to be equal, while == or != is defined in terms of identity in the machine, or what it means to be exactly the same reference.

    Your theme song is both hysterical and sad. I doubt the truth in it, but I get the point.
