In an effort to get my own posts answered faster and because of my aspirations, though potentially jeopardized with my recent impatience and a practical joke I pulled, as well as that I'm feeling very generous, I'll try to answer as many posts as I can. I can't do networking stuff though. Mainly beginner stuff and some GUI stuff and maybe some arrayList stuff and things like that. I have my own version of the LinkedList class in java, it's called DoublyLinkedList, it's in a lot of the forums I've been asking for help in, though get rid of the method that returns an array of generic type, the compiler doesn't like that. I'm also working on a JMenuBar subclass that does fancy things and will have a working setHelpMenu(JMenu menu) method.
