I've been fighting over a bug in my NBGS for like... an hour? I kept going back and forth between thinking blackdown's JDK was buggy or I was incredibly stupid. I couldn't get a frickin' button to work. I added the ActionListener, it built, ran, but just didn't work. My TextListener and WindowListener worked fine.... why wasn't a button working? I got Scott to look at it for me.... we wasted more time. Finally we found it:
Yeah, I was adding an anonymous button instance, not the one I'd created at top and added the actionlistener to. I usually mock up the interface with anonymous crap to begin with, but I'd forgot to change this one.
Hehehe. Yeah, I lose.
At least this isn't homework or real work... and at least it's the weekend. It's easy to laugh at myself for being stupid when I have nothing better to be doing. :-)
Don't you just live for having nothing better to do?!
I finished a several month, 300 page long documentation project today. Yep, I wrote the whole damn thing... and probably wrote half of it in the last 3 weeks. I feel like I just finished finals; physically and mentally exhausted, wanting to seriously decompress and get what I wrote about out of my head, which is now crammed with many, many thousands of permutations of CLI commands for one of these, which I might arguably know more about than most of our engineers.
