nladehoff_Numerology.java:149: error: orphaned case
case 1: System.out.printf ("=1= You will meet a new friend today.");

Hi Nathan, and welcome to the Ranch!

Java is case sensitive, and all keywords are in lowercase. Look hard at the line before the one with the orphaned case.

Code posted here is much easier to read when you UseCodeTags. I'm adding them for you this time.

... and that's not the only error, so get back to us if you're stuck again. But try it yourself first.

just a side note:

This is why you should never write more than 2-3 lines of code before compiling and testing. If you had written the MINIMUM amount of code needed for a switch statement, you'd have found your problem much easier.
