I am a newbie that started reading books on Java about 2 months ago.
My last legitimate line of code was typed in 1992, and I honestly cannot remember if it was QuickBasic or Mathematica.
I am old enough I took a college course on FORTRAN, and my parents owned a TI-994A and a C64. Those were the days!
I am attempting to write programs that I would like for table top gaming and in my line of work. I am finding the transition from the
older procedural way of thinking to an object-oriented way of thinking difficult. However, I see the benefit, and I am enjoying the process.
Many thanks in advance to all the Moderators and others who are kind enough to give their time and knowledge to educate others!!!
I'm glad that you're enjoying the process. Make sure to challenge yourself to solve more and more difficult problems, ask questions when you're stuck, and put up your code for peer review when you think you're reached another milestone.
We've exchanged some ideas already, hope it did not scare you off!
I hate signatures!

@Piet Souris - Not at all! Appreciate the patience of everyone posting. It is interesting how the answer can sometimes be obvious, but still so difficult to see.
Again, a different way of thinking compared to the older languages I used.
