    Default List<forumMember> guys = new ArrayList<forumMember>("Hey Fellow Programmer!);

    I'm an English teacher.
    I'm a masseur.
    I'm a hobby programmer.
    Sometimes when I'm fed up with the chaos in people, I do some programming. That's how it started.
    After a while I always get back to people, but a little break helps.
    I produced some practical results as well, for example my KeySequences project, which I use most of the time in place of the Start Menu (actually the Unity HUD). It enables me to start apps with a few keys, without any mouse or touchpad usage.

    --- Update ---

    And there's a syntactical error in the title, but I won't change it...

    Welcome. Does this mean we will have to watch our spelling and sentence constructions now?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    No, it's not about grammar, it's a java syntax error: the missing closing quotation mark.

    That, and I don't think ArrayList has a constructor which accepts a String, lol.

    Yeah. I should have written new MemberList<forumMember>("Hey Fellow Programmer!"); and claimed that MemberList is an extension of ArrayList and MemberList DOES have a constructor that accepts a String.

    If we are getting picky, forumMember would be a class and thus should start with a capital -> ForumMember. Jokes aside, it is good to have you here, you see like a nice addition to JPF. Welcome.

    It would be great to see a screenshot of your KeySequences project, it sounds interesting.

    I will make a thread about it, not just with screenshots but with the code as well, as soon as I port it from python.
