Ha! Cute! But gender specific and not accommodating women.

Java (which I enabled for this without restarting my browser, then disabled again when I was done)

do you really want to rely on a browser that can't identify the most common of plugins? :D

But quite fitting, since the second half is contradictory it makes the first half valid :)

Ok ok ok sorry to the various complainants, especially App103 who of course immediately detected the inherent sexism that is rife amongst All Powerful Rules of Imaginary Places.

This is a small Java Applet which exemplifies a few useful basics: text input, button events, using the Graphics2D class and font metrics.

Thanks for giving it a go - you made a nephew of mine very happy!

Professor wraith808 Pointless: Obscene Knave of Tinkling-on-the-Water

Pretty cool that he's into programming. :)  He's already into Java, so this recommendation is probably Pointless (:)) but there's a really good book I purchased for my son to get started (and his uncle used it too!)

Hello World!

They have pretty good sales on Manning from time to time; I believe I purchased the book and the pdf for $15.00 around Christmas.

Your nephew should be very proud of himself. He had me fooled. I thought this was something fun & silly that you did!

(yes, I have been known to make silly stuff to practice new skills, too...Mad Libs, Goodbye Canada, etc.)

Good one - I'll grab that thing. There's a big element of running before walking when it comes to computering these days IMHO. Would be a great idea to cover some more basics.

Am I getting some sort of reputation?   :P

Ok, I may have suggested some of the titles and so forth. Anyone who reads CT will probably realise I love bad puns and silly name.

It's a cute enough thingy, timns - make him add some control that can do selectable text as the next step, should be easy enough :)

Stoic Joker: now that's a damn nifty title! I love the word 'ineffable' - it's right up there with 'exhume' in my list of nifty++ english words.

I have no problem with ineffable, as I have frequently left people searching for words in an attempt to describe my antics. Having a rather dry whit, I can even deal with the concept of being a capricious stoic... I'm at an age where many of my memories are (at least becoming) archane...and I like the wilderness. But, Bitch-Queen?!? That's a hell of a thing to hang on a guy....

Mr Joker, if it makes you feel any better:

I just got clobbered with

... wondering if there's some string checking in there for my name...

So... I worked up the courage to try it again (foolish, i know...):

Baron Stoic Joker the Xanthocronic: Malign Cephlopod of the uphill Gardeners

So... do I go with the one I can't pronounce, or should I just stick with Bitch-Queen?!?

OMG I would definitely remain as a bitch-queen if I were you...

In the meantime I'll give a certain family member a stern stare over the webcam.
