Never thought I'd say this, but I can't wait for winter! Or at least some cooler weather. Jan 19, 2019 at 10:31 AM

      My big 6-month project will go live in a couple of hours. Here's hoping for good sleeps (no phone calls) for the rest of the week.

        well, no phone calls, no issues. Everything ran perfectly (with my project AND end of month/year stuff, which I could also have been called about). Still didn't get a good sleep, expecting a call and hoping to not get one. And idiots up the road with fireworks.

        "just" work stuff. Nightmare because project owner kept changing her mind about things. For two lines to be shown on a screen, she asked for changes FIVE times in a single week! Even on the last day she was asking us to change stuff. The whole project was like that :(

        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

        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 But it's about 5-6 years old now, so potentially a few versions out of date, which also makes it hard to follow along sometimes.
