  1. In Topic: Vector Class- Problem with my isParallel

    Posted 2 Oct 2014

    Maybe your epsilon is too small. What angle gets returned when you call it with the same vectors?
  2. In Topic: Homebuying Advice

    Posted 1 Oct 2014

    Some advice I was given is to favour the worst house in the best street over the best house in the worst street. You can always do up the house, the neighbourhood is not so easy.
  3. In Topic: New offering of Coursera Programming Languages course starts this week

    Posted 1 Oct 2014

    I really enjoyed this course when I did it. Here's a review I wrote at the time, in case it helps anyone make up their mind.
  4. In Topic: Where should I start - adjust areas of monitor color in background

    Posted 1 Oct 2014

    It's certainly an interesting idea. Software for colour blind users tweaks colours. This might be a good starting point for your research. It sounds like you really need something at the operating system level and Java might not be the best tool. It's certainly going to be a lot of work and it might not even be successful.

    I agree with modi123_1 that it would be easier to just replace the screen (or put up with it). If it's too expensive for the part then maybe you need to rethink your hardware.

    I had to do the same with my car. The maintenance became so expensive that I could no longer afford to keep it. I traded in my fun car and bought a sensible car. The trade in value + savings on maintenance meant I could break even on a brand new sensible car (assuming no maintenance for three years). Factoring in petrol, road tax and insurance savings over the same period and I saved money buying a brand new car. When it does need some TLC at the garage, I bet the parts will be cheaper than the old car too.

    $700 for a new screen sounds pretty steep, but macs are top end machines. My whole laptop was 400. Guess what I'll do if the screen breaks? I'll put the whole lot in the bin and buy a new one, for less than your screen repair. Computers need to be disposable. Even if you don't break them, you will always need a better one every few years. Bearing this in mind, I can't afford a mac on my disposable income. Maybe you can't either.

    Maybe you do some IOS programming and really do need a mac. What other options are there? You could buy an external monitor for $200 for home use and still have the usable built in screen for uni. If you did buy a second cheaper laptop then you could save the mac for IOS programming and use the new one for everything else.
  5. In Topic: No main method, applet, or IMDlet

    Posted 30 Sep 2014

    Sorry, I wasn't clear enough.

    In your code you had the line I quoted. It is missing the word static.

    Wrapping the whole thing in a main method like you did won't help. In fact, you have more than one class and each class should be in its own file.

    Thanks for Your Precious Input. I Found the character counting thing very bedazzling. I have the code to it that I wrote Myself, but it took me Long to find a subtle Algorithm :)

    Cheers! The next one is in progress, but I'm having to learn and write some programs first. It's going to take a little time...

    "Purple DIC-headed Warrior" doesn't quite apply now that you got the promotion. Well done!
