Just a little general entry here.
Better start with my Java diary, and I have to say everything is going as it should be. What I will say however is that I am dipping in and out of a few different books now, 4 or 5 of them, including Sun’s own online manual. Where am I in the grand scheme of things? Well not very far, but I am coming to understand the Java fundamentals, meaning that when I look at the code it isn’t just code anymore. Doesn’t sound like much, but when you look at a page of code and it doesn’t just look like lines of mixed up rubbish, I can assure you it’s a good feeling. Program wise? I have done the usual ‘Hello World’ as is customary and am progressing further up the code chain, so to speak. Have been playing with a few IDE’s, including Eclipe, Netbeans and JCreator. As well as doing the ‘book’ work I have been downloading the source code of other Java programs and giving them my limited once over. All in all I am loving it, now it’s just finding as much time as I would like to devote to it…..
Personal notes: Well there isn’t a huge amount other than things ticking over much of a muchness. Girls are on half term so the house is full all day. Baby is doing great, which reminds me that I need to do some more updates to her site. Fiddled about with the built in webcam on this lappy and took a photo for my IM. Exciting no?
