Someone I know had ask me what is the most straight forward way of producing a mailing list/newsletter for their members. Their members need to have anonymity (so the email goes out like a "bcc"). I am not certain of the size of the membership, maybe 1000 to 2000 members.
In my ignorance, I am aware it is possible to have some sort of mailing group in an address book and simply mail out the email/newsletter as a bcc, however this allows for too much human error. It is important to not allow an email to go out with all
members seeing each others email addresses in a humugious "to".
If anyone can share their knowledge on this it would be much appreciated.
[oops, "anonymity" was spelt "animosity". I found my typo rather amusing]

Well, I can look around at the people I know and it appears that marriage is far from becoming a tautology. These people are generally non religious xgeners. I reckon if there was any trend away from marrage, then it should be evident, here.
The institution of marriage has changed a lot over the last hundred years; At least, so I am led to believe. I haven't live anything like hundred years So, I can't state this with accuracy.
I think its funny to hear ideas of how we can simply re-engineer human behavior. Let's go for it. We can do away with marriage, money, property, jealously, egos, gods, weapons... Ah, this list is far too specious. It needs serious thought. Once I become Supreme Global Dictator this can be implemented. Hang on, I don't have a plan to become a SGD. Ah, no plan. Bugger! I think I'll just get back to my neglected cattleranch assignment.
Ho-humm.

Interfaces:
They cast the same way as Classes.
Arrays:
Arrays are their own heirachy, so you can not cast them to non-array (except Object).
I think you can cast individual elements of an Array.
Try displaying the following casts. I concede that casting String objects as String objects is probably not a good example.
String myS [] = {"A","B","C"};
(Object) myS; // accepts cast
(String) myS; // rejects cast
(String) myS[0]; // accepts cast

It is still displaying html. I have tried re-freshing. I am using Netscape.
It does display a little bit of web page for only an instance. I can see the moose's head and some paragraphed text with an jump on the word "here". It is too quick to read or to try and hit the html jump.
I only mention this incase it gives an indication of where in the html there might be a problem for Nescape browsers.

This is what is needed:
write1.write(temp1);
write1.flush();
write1.close();

I would suggest having another look at the error message. It looks as if it is really compaining about the method selectionSort() being duplicated. (Both selectionSort() methods have the same int[] parameters.)
The overriding of the method insertionSort() is valid. So, you look as if you are on the right track, and just need to fix the selectionSort() as you have done insertionSort(). It looks as if you have simply been thrown off track by the error message.

It is certainly understandable.

Oh, I was not aware of the change to cattle drive assignments. There was one person asking about where to post the cheque, however I had thought that was to do with one of the special classes (which are run every once in a while).
My assignments have been accepted, since I had originally started prior to the May cut-over. Something to be greatful for.
This is what happend when you go away for a while; Things change.

Johannes asked:
Progress, close to Java & can you do OO in/with it ?
The short answer is No.
The long answer is :
The up-todate version of Progress aspires to be a quasi OO, however this mainly enables Progress to be developed with Visual tools and components.
Progress is a procedural language. It is strong and flexible as database (client-server) application software. It is a language, deve tool, and datavase all in one.
I was at a company which was going to really push the limits with the new versions quasi-OO-ness. It was really interesting stuff for me, unforatunely the company went into administration (i.e. voluntary receivership; went bust; hit the wall). This was a major disappointment for me, as the majority of the Progress market has a very tradition procedural approach. Such is life So, not very interesting.

When I was young, I did not know that dentures (false teeth) were artifical. I think my father and my grandparents had dentures at the time. In my logical child mind, I had to determine how it was possible they could have detachable teeth.
I spent time giving it serious thought. How was it possible that a set of teeth could seperate from the jaw in two whole pieces? I tugged my teeth, inspected my gums, and I felt around my jaw bone. It just did not seem possible, but to my child mind the evidence (father and grandparents) dictate that it had to be possible. This mystery had me totally puzzled.
One night my mother found me tugging at my teeth. I had explained my confusion. She then told me about how dentures weren't real teeth but man-made. She told me that she did not have dentures. I, being the good little empiricist that I was, wouldn't believe her until I could tug at her teeth to verify that they were not detachable.

I suppose in the context of the other threads you call call them "Blind date merchants" (i.e. Businesses which provide match-making services).

This is a tangent off the other threads to do with Bind Dates and Falling...
What comments, experiences, or anecdotes do you people have on introduction agencies?
