    Please post your code in code tags.

    Why the '@@'? Is that relevant?

    If you're getting errors you want help with, post the exact error, the entire error and stack trace, copied and pasted from just as it appears at your end. If possible, post a short, runnable code example that demonstrates the error.

    I believe your problem is because arrays are created with null elements until otherwise initialized. The storage[][] array is full of nulls.
