This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
John, Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but have you tried searching this forum on "SortNames"? It gave 55 results when I tried it just now.
I read through a lot of this when I was doing Sortnames and although not all messages were helpful to me, most we're interesting. What did hit the nail on the head for me was a tip from Marilyn (in the oldest message but one, funnily enough, one Bill Bozeman was in the soup at that time). It restored my confidence no end .

I did see the post you reference...I get that part but the implementation escapes me. I'm not normally this dumb...I don't get it. Of course, I won't give up, but nothing makes sense.
