    The variable a is a double but is also trying to be a 3D coordinate.
    You have at least two different things that look almost like your accelaration equation.
    It looks like you're trying to add and subtract accelerations to a location which doesn't make sense to me.

    The code has confused me so much that I'm not really sure what you want that snippet to do. Could you explain a bit more?

    Lists can be sexy for such things:

    import java.util.*;
    public class RememebringThingsDemo {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		List<String> lyrics = new ArrayList<>();
    		lyrics.add("One potato,");
    		lyrics.add("Two potato,");
    		lyrics.add("Three potato,");
    		lyrics.add("Five potato,");
    		lyrics.add("Six potato,");
    		lyrics.add("Seven potato,");
    		for(String line: lyrics) {

    Don't feel like you have to understand that whole PDF to get started. It will be a very useful reference to look things up as you go along. It also is packed with source code examples so why not try pasting some of them in. You can probably google for example input files to get them to run.

    If you're interested in SMILES then look for an example that uses them and paste it in. When you get it to work, try modifying it to tweak the behaviour. SMILES are also a good starting point because you won't need input files.

    I guess I should also say that we can help better if you paste the code you are trying to run. If it's finding a suitable input file then let us know too (alongside the code you are trying to run). The more information (and the more specific it is) the better we can help you.

    Ugh. Email is deadly. Work email really should be delivered twice a day: once at 9:00AM, and again at 4:00 PM.

    Totally agree. This is why I turn notifications off and check it twice a day.

    Agree! I'm using BatchedInbox for my Gmail mailbox and it is a fantastic tool.

    This seems unnecessary, and also insecure. Just check it at certain times. If you need to log in to look things up a lot, you can set up a filter to keep things out of your inbox, marked as read.
  5. In Topic: Is there a built in "Find and Replace" method in the API?

    Posted 26 Jan 2015

    To be honest, you don't need code generation or group theory, just a method and some enums:

    class Cube {
        enum Slice {TOP, MIDDLE, BOTTOM, LEFT, CENTER, RIGHT};
        enum Direction {CLOCKWISE, ANTICLOCKWISE};
        void rotate(Slice s, Direction d) {
         // Your code here

    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!
