My biggest frustration with Java these days is that the embedded jEmacs and jVi editors are 'almost' there. jEmacs much more so than jVi from the looks... I want to embed them in VisualSoar now, damnit. The default Java editor component is roughly as powerful as WordPad. Woo.

Yeah.. I have the same problem... I'm just finishing an interface using Swing and had quite a few problems setting the componets where I wanted them...
If you're Using GridBagLayout (I would)... It's all about the insects. :-)

But if you have many widgets they'll never be where you want them to.
The only problem I see with the GridBag is that the GridBag constraints seem to be more complicated than they needed to, but it's the only layout manager that let's you make more complex interfaces.

Canker sores are a bitch because you can't do ANYTHING about them. Someone told me that if you eat yogurt there are some enzymes or something that's supposed to help them, but it doesn't seem to do much.

Canker sore or cold sore (inside mouth or outside)? Cold sores can usually be treated with Licene (sp?) and whatever that new cold sore medicine is. Canker sores are tougher to treat. I've only had one once, and I think Licene helps but I am not sure how much. I could be wrong. Aren't there things you could take that have menthol or camphor or something in them to relieve the pain, or is that only for sores outside the mouth?

Sorry, just rambling.

Lycine tablets help to prevent canker sores from coming back. If you get it from Trader Joe's or something, it's quite cheap.

Trader Joe's..hah, there is a place I discovered about two days ago. They have chocolate with rasberry stuff inside. Mmm.

Lycine helps with more then just prevention: if you feel a cold/canker sore coming on (and I usually do) and you take lycine, it can stop the sore from developing, or at least make it fairly small and painless. I am not sure if taking it when the sore is already developed helps any, but it might. *shrug*

Someone I know from "The Online" once said, in wise, oh wise words... That the best way to get rid of a canker sore, is to roll a q-tip in salt and STUFF THE FUCKER RIGHT IN THERE!

It's also the best way to die of shock, but it'll soak up all of them bad acids!
