What fred was referring to as far as your name is the JavaRanch Naming Policy where we require that your name contain a real-sounding first and last name. While we prefer that you use your real name (or some variation thereof), we only insist that the name you choose is not obviously fictitous.
I am wondering if I should use multiple expressions in the4 for loops, how many to nest. I can't get the double to round to an int. What I can't seem to figure out also is how to add one number onto each successive line up until 1028. Maybe I can use the controlling expression to do this? Hmm.
hmmm... ok, i may be dense, but i'm not seeing the pattern...
can you print the whole thing, or explain it better? i get that each line has one more element than the previous one, and i get the pattern of the first and second column... but after that, i just don't see it...
There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
Thanks I'll try that. I definitely think that I was making it more complicated than it was. I started out with two variables and a couple of lines. Then after thinking and tweaking, I just started to add code; obviously it was superfluous.
I'll see what I can do. I can conceive it being quite simple, yet just a matter of playing with the "margins" of the code, so to speak. Taking what conventions and syntax will allow me, and working off of that. I think that I was trying to force it.
Thanks so much for the input, encouragement, and suggestions.
