Life Lesson #12: Always Cover your ass.

I don't even need to detail this one.

(My dad uses this variant, "Don't let your mouth write a check that your ass can't cover." )

THE CODING STYLE CODE STILL HAS ERRORS.
I WILL FIX IT.
DON'T USE IT .
IN FACT, I'M TAKING IT OFF THE SITE FOR NOW.

Well, I just found a hideous error in my javascript code. So if you're wondering, "WTF?!" and "WHY DOESN'T THIS SH** WORK?!" ... well it's because I made a f***ing stupid mistake.
The mistake has been fixed.

But in fixing that mistake, I've found ways to make the code better.

So don't bother reading it now, although it WILL work now ... just as long as you follow the conventions, and DON'T name the constructor the same as the object ... that bites, but hey, I'm workin' on it. Originally I used a lot of evals and junk, and had some cool features, but it didn't always work half the time, and strange things would happen across browsers, but this is *SO* much simpler. FAR simpler. And it works in Phoenix, Opera, IE, Mozilla, and Netscape! :-p.
Anyway, you can read the changes if you want, but I suggest not. Fortunately I doubt if enough people have actually been reading this blog to notice.

Oh yeah ... my life ... Had a Linear Algebra Test ... deceptively simple, I haven't even caught up to where everyone else is in the class yet, and boom ... I feel the heavy hand of Doom rest upon my shoulders as I plummet to the ground in a heap, unable to support the weight... Enough about me, though !

The first Atheist/Agnostics Meeting is Tomorrow at 6:00 ... which incomveniently coincides with the first CS345/346 review session ... I'm going to try and go to both. We'll see what happens. The club fair is also tomorrow, so I get to put in some time during my audited class and hand out brochures and junk, talk to people, argue with fundamentalists ... it'll be great !
I'm a bit miffed at our president ... after all, it's more of a freethought group ... I'm deist, and he's atheist, Conrad is agnostic ... I believe ... and we're certainly not closing our doors to skeptics, either. *sigh* What's done is done. Now we just need to continue to say that we DO encourage deists and skeptics to join. gah. Oh well. we'll see what happens.
L8r !
I've done it !
I've javafied Javascript !
erm ... Insofar as I want it javafied, :-D.

But credit must always be given where credit is due ... I never would've had the balls to try it if I hadn't learned the cool tricks from Douglas Crockford's Website on private function members, inheritance, and parameter-saving in Javascript, and I also used one of his functions in my javafication.

So if you like to code, or are just curious as to what the heck I'm talking about, CHECK IT OUT !

l8r!
