Cherry pies

"Classes and objects are not the same thing. A class is a type definition, whereas an object is a declaration of an instance of a class type. Once you create a class, you can create as many objects based on that class as you want. The same relationship exists between classes and objects as between cherry pie recipes and cherry pies; you can make as many cherry pies as you want from a single recipe. The process of creating an object from a class is referred to as instantiating an object or creating an instance of a class."

So as you can see I am well on my way to mastering the wonderful world of Java with the long-term goal of becoming Java/J2SE certified. That way I will be balancing my life between housemanship and web technology expert and hopefully increasing my availability for new-and-improved forms of employment.


Good luck with that! I know I would broaden my appeal as a job candidate if I could pick that stuff up, but coding just isn't one of my strong points. It's a wholly different mental world than the one I live in, unfortunately. The stumbling block for me is that I have nothing physical to relate it to. If I could make a connection in the real world to what is being done in code, it might just stick. But so far I have been unable to find anything to relate it to. Maybe someday . . .

Well, to each and every one we have a unique path to follow. For me programming is nothing physical at all, but I can relate to it for some strange reason.

I envy you Kiffin, I haven't done real coding in 15 years or so. I used to do machine code for embedded processors in fire control systems for the military. Times have changed. I am taking Photography classes now to perhaps get income from that. Good luck to you!!

Photography is probably a more worthwhile endeavor and will earn you big bucks in the long run. I took a photography class once at the university, mostly artsy black and white pictures. Back then I thought that I was some future famous young buck photographer and just about every snapshot I made seemed like a masterpiece. Who was I kidding?
