I just read this post in Java in General (beginner), and it made me think I had slipped into a parallel world where java Ranch is all about needlework and home crafts. Summarized it says:
"I'm having trouble putting buttons and drawstrings on canvas." and the answer? "take a look at this painting tutorial"
Has metaphor gone too far? What next??
