I went to peruse and reflect on the JavaRanch FAQ at http://faq.javaranch.com/view and most of the body came up as a lot of gibberish. Here's hoping it's just my browser.

That page actually is an automatic log of all page views since the FAQ got installed. I guess it simply is too big. We probably should disable that feature...

So... you're saying that the 'Ranch can't 'remember' all of us who've visited over the years? Sounds like web applications are people, too! :roll:

No, it remembers just perfectly. It just barfs when you ask it to tell you...

Is there help or FAQ for the FAQ. I mostly get 500 out of memory errors.

Someone asks what's the difference between these:

String var = "xyz";

String var = new String ("xyz");

So, I try to find a FAQ to point to. The only java FAQ pointer I found is from the beginner java forum. If I try to go anywhere from the new FAQ, boom 500 error.

From intermediate java it goes to http://test.javaranch.com/wiki/view and hits 500 error right away.

Must be some newfangled thing only the youngsters can navigate.

Hi Carol,

I've been a bartender in Intermediate for, I dunno, six months now, and I've never clicked on that link. It was broken; I've fixed it now. The right link for the FAQ is now just http://faq.javaranch.com .

Thanks Ernest.

When I get to http://faq.javaranch.com/view and try to navigate to "FAQs", "Ranchers", or "Categories" I get a big stack trace from 500 error with root cause = java.lang.OutOfMemoryError.

(Looks like my best bet to find anything is to go to the recent changes page).

Here's the rest from going to Categories:

Yes. More specifically, the search feature is producing that error. I have an idea where it is coming from, but didn't yet manage to raise the attention of someone who knows what to do about it. I will try harder...

The FAQ also seems to be indexed by Google, so you can use a google search incorporating the search term "site:faq.javaranch.com".
