Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

First, a bit of business: you may not have read our naming policy on the way in. It requires that you use a full, real (sounding) first and last name for your display name. A single name isn't enough. You can change your display name here. Thanks!

Third, this has nothing to do with threads (so I deleted the copy in Threads) and nothing to do with SCJP, so I'm going to move this copy to the "Java in General (Beginner)" forum.
