        Yes, or better yet, it is a brilliant idea. I don't have a clue on what you are talking about but I would trust you with this idea. I mean, Whenever I solved something with the same way I designed it sometime in the past and then find out my past code and it is identical I just say to my self "You son of a cute, you self approve this solution". :p I know the felling! :D

        Oh, I already know. It's a lot of hard work, and I have to learn a new programming language. Last year I probably thought I could work without it, but clearly I haven't been, so it's now more important than it was then :D

        Shaz that sounds like me when I got old enough to play and understand RPG's. I took any RPG I could get my hands on, even the bad ones. And yes, that means I did play the clunker that is the Spelljammer PC game.

        The cat had not been desexed or microchipped and probably not vaccinated either. The rescue group I now work with has a "last litter" program where they will pay for all of these things, leaving the mother with her owners, but the condition is that the kittens are handed over for fostering.

        That way, it's guaranteed that they won't be given away to other people who will be just as irresponsible, but will be looked after, desexed, chipped, vaccinated, and then sold to people who are prepared to spend money on their pet.

        I can agree that calling something without real world implementation a complete tutorial is overkill, since if you know the theory, but cannot implement it in practice, it's as good as nothing. But I definitely can see why many people will avoid it, since it's not just a matter of one or two extra chapters. Unless we require student's prior knowledge of this and that, which will make it useless.

        I found one course that's JUST on GUI with Java. It assumes prior knowledge of the language, and just focuses on the gui stuff. It would be a good SECOND course to take. But it's about 5-6 years old now, so potentially a few versions out of date, which also makes it hard to follow along sometimes.

        I'm after the PC version. We don't celebrate Christmas, and he hardly ever asks for stuff, so I don't have an issue getting it for him. I'd just rather not pay a small fortune for it.

        @Shaz, It is wired in the US website of the stream is 77.56 AUD.
        This game has a pc version of only on stream. This problem in every new game. You can only in it in the main producer. Wait a while if you want a discount.

        mmm $60USD (deluxe) is about $85AUD on xe.com - that's better than I thought. I did include the DLC originally in my estimate, but he says he doesn't want that. He also hasn't used Steam and may not know what DLC is, so may change his mind :D

        That's precisely the reason I had to stop fostering animals. I ended up with two extra dogs, a cat and a goat before I finally had to make myself stop.

        Haha! I told the lady this who runs the rescue, and she said not to worry - two of her carers have SIX cats each because they couldn't let them go! I checked council guidelines, and we are only allowed to have 3, which we already have. So no keeping fosters.

And I've got it for at least another 3 months. I have no motivation to go to work.

        Yeah, it's impossible to get motivation from a toxic work environment like that. Gotta pull it in from elsewhere I guess. Bring happiness in with you or choose your own goals for success since finishing work won't be fulfilling. *shrugs* I wish I could help, but this is the best I can do.
