Programming - Did you ever do anything as silly as this ?

I can't believe what I just asked at Stack overflow. This was really embarrassing. Have you ever made errors like this ?

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16799264/how-do-i-sort-my-hashmap-keys-they-are-not-sorting

I feel that I must stop programming at once because my errors are this bad.

Yikes! Time for more coffee or to call it a day. That's the kind of problem that would jump out at you right away tomorrow morning.

And that's what frustrates me about stackoverflow. You asked a question about a legitimate problem you were having. (granted you could have solved it with a nap, but that's not the point.) You got eight downvotes and your question closed. And at least you got the answer before that happened. It just doesn't feel inviting.

Disclosure: I have about 3K in reputation there. I don't see how. I try to post periodically, but I have trouble getting into it. I keep trying though; I want to grok the mindset.

There seem to be many people there who think "This is a stupied newbie question! I'm going to downvote and comment on how stupid it is!". Not very friendly for people who are learning the basics of programming...
