    I came here as a last resort. I had been working on the homework assignment all weekend (I go to work and school), and I still wasn't getting it by yesterday morning. At that point I had to leave for my job and couldn't tinker with it further, so I came here asking for suggestions. I probably would have signed up for a Java help forum anyway, since this could be a valuable resource in my future studies.

    Notice the significant amount of time between JBelg's response and my own. I was experimenting with it, and even checked my textbook and various online sources to see if I was missing something about boolean->string conversion. That's when I came back asking about the error, only to find out it was justa misplaced parenthesis (always the little things that get past me). I didn't just run it once and say "It didn't work." All he had to say was "Check the parenthesis" or something along those lines. I didn't need a damn lecture from him about my study habits; that was just ignorant.

    Nonetheless, I'm understanding loops a lot better now, and I appreciate the help Surfman, JBelg, and Norm. :)
    I hear ya! I was merely stating that this is the type of stuff the regulars have to deal with. I never said you were like that, but you didn't make it easy on us. :)

    Please come back for more questions, if you have any. This forum actually is a very helpful resource, but the effort has to go both ways, that's all.
    gimbal2, Norm and JosAH like this.

    That's why I like you regardless - you drop Monty Python at the right times. MY BRAIN HURTS!

    EDIT: crud, didn't see page 2. @Jos of course.

    I gotcha. Thanks again for the help. I'll be sticking around for the time being. Who knows, I might even reach a point where I can offer Java help myself
