you know what philo? I dont give a damn. I deliberately didn't undelete the threads deleted by flasher because I didn't want to start a mod war. Ive deliberately not started deleting threads of other posters as a 'joke' because that way lies stupidity.
youve been a total waste of fucking space as a moderator on CoT, the latest shitstorm was happening while you were right there, and it fully fits with that pattern that you are perfectly happy to delete whatever the fuck you feel like whenever the fuck you feel like.
hell, at least flasher and wards efforts had precedent and were vaguely amusing.
just fuck off philo, seriously.
Wow. I'm apparently a much better troll when I don't actually try very hard.

Who? Me? Nope.

Didn't I post lol in this thread?
Oh, right, we have new moderators expect the usual meglomania for a while.....
sorry, that may have been unfair. the blank poster is back and being a prick again, I assumed that was him.
if it wasn't then oops.
hey I just thought it was funny. your post was funny. seriously. relax dude.
<shrug> Iv been working for 4 days on a stupid opensource framework specifically designed to make me hate opensource programmers forever more, using the worst designed ID in the world (eclipse) and working 16 hour days. _you_ fucking relax asshole.
What language? Java?

yep, thats the other issue. I haven't dont java for years and years and years and if seems to have achieved a much greater complexity in that time. setting up the fucking library paths for dependents in eclipse is just a kind of fucking magic.
meh, its all working out and getting done, Ive over the worst of it and cruising now, but getting to this point has just been LOTS of fun.
fucking opensource java based eclipse crap.
So, is it spring? Tomcat?

huh? AFAIK its just an opensource java framework aimed at some specific stuff, the specific projcet Im working on uses that framework heavily and compiles to (currently) a mac os x application only.
later on we have to move it to the web. yay!
What did you find hard about setting up the library paths in Eclipse? I found the process of opening the project properties and adding libraries to the Java build path with the browse buttons much easier to handle than the horrible way I have to do it in Visual Studio.
"What did you find hard about setting up the library paths in Eclipse?"
mostly the fact I had no idea how to do it, when I got it wrong there were no clear errors that I could see and overall I foudn it hard.
oh! it wasn't jsut the dependents, it was also the configuration settings, the long lines of senseless crap that I had to enter to tell the compiler what to do with everything..or something..I never really figured out what it was all for.
"I found the process of opening the project properties and adding libraries to the Java build path with the browse buttons much easier to handle than the horrible way I have to do it in Visual Studio."
never having used VS, Im perfectly happy to believe that.
What I found about Eclipse coming to it as a new user, was that to begin with I found myself totally lost and bewildered about where everything is and what everything does. I needed someone to walk me through it and get me started. Once I had been shown the ropes, it all started to make much more sense.
So it's not simple to learn from scratch, but the features are nicely organized and pleasantly rewarding once you get into it.
"but the features are nicely organized and pleasantly rewarding once you get into it."
yeah, I do believe that. Im already starting to appreciate the layout a little more.
the trouble is of course that once I finish this project I wont need to go near it again for months and by then I will have forgotten everything I learnt.
sucks to be me :)
