Sorry, I just realised my answer wasnt very clear... Thanks Ernest for clearing things up

Because they are used so commonly, strings can be created like primitives, yet they really are objects, thus you can write things like myStringVar.length(). It just makes it easier for the programmer. You have similar things in Ruby for arrays etc...

I haven't used java for a while either but looks like that method is inside another method, if I recall, that's not legal. What's the error message?

Yeah, the two teams I like the least just happen to be the favourites for this year... I don't like the way juventus play, they're effective but i don t like their style, and as for barca, well i m for madrid so... .
But i have to admit the football they play is beautiful, it's crazy they do things which are just magnificent... I went to see them this summer playing against Betis, and although the match wasn t important for them, they still pulled amazing feats.
Which is your fav team?

However much I like Benfica, it would be an amazing feat to win Barca, i don t think there's anyway. Barca has had the best season in a very long time and they pulverised some personal records of macthes won consecutively. Added to the fact that they're overmotivated to win this cup, if i remember well, the last time barca was in a final was in 94 against milan (am i right? no time to check). This is their big come back.
About Lyon, you may be right. Still i think the safest best is with the italians. Although man, i d love lyon to win.

My personal favourite is clearly Villareal, although i don t think they have muhc of a chance. Whatever happens I think there's no way that Barcelona can be stopped (they're the best, although i'm not too hot for them as i'm for Madrid ). The only ones up to the task are the Italian teams which usually do a good job of sapping offensive powerful teams with their super defensive tactics and their dirty counter attacks. It's happened before (AC 4 - Barca 0)

I completely agree with your bets, except for inter - villareal. I think the italians are more likely to win, even if they re not playing at their best, villareal has never made it this far in a european championship.

We'll see how it goes i suppose.

How did you do to try to compile? What error do you get?

This should work: javac *.java

What's your question?
The call to another constructor within a constructor has to be the first statement in the constructor.

I don't know about contemporary books, but about contemporary Italian movies, i'd recommend: Il Nuovo Cinema Paradiso (Tornatore), La Meglio Gioventu (Superb movie, can't remember the director), and La Stanza Del Figlio, all placed in italy.

La meglio gioventu is probably the best if you want to see the italian way of life. It tells the life story of 2 brothers and relates it to the history of italy, the flood of florence, the communist movement, the modernisation of italy etc...

What about Umberto Eco? I haven't read his books, but he's pretty famous.
And here: A GUIDE TO CONTEMPORARY ITALIAN LITERATURE

Well if you're based in Europe you might try "Le Guide Du Routard"

It's nice

There s something similar in Mission Impossible 1. Cruise licks a hair and sticks it to the side of the door frame. Otherwise, hmm what about powder, talc and the like? A line of talc at the entrance, some place where a big movement will cause the stuff to go everywhere?

I'm sure I've only got one spare "slot" in my brain for a foreign language. I've found that since starting learning Greek, I've forgotten all my French. Whenever I try to think of a French word for something, the Greek pops up instead. Yesterday I realised that I can't even remember enough to ask "how old are you". It made me think - at what point does a lack of knowledge of a language decrease to the point where you can no longer say you "know" the language?



It's normal, if you don't practise a language, you forget it. I studied German for 4 years, and i can t remember how to say how old are you, wie alt bist du?, i can remember aproximately . However, because you ve already learned it, next time it will take you 2 times less effort to relearn it. Especially if you go to that country, it will just pop back in after a few weeks. And anyway, the other important thing is that people appreciate the effort of you learning their language, and this is specially true for some eu countries.

I'm curious, what do you say when you swear like a Drunker Sailor? And in French? Why French? I have a friend who when he swears alsways asks us to forgive his French. Why is that?
