Ajax, javascript and html, oh my!

Homework assignment has been submitted! Go Me!

15 whole minutes to spare!

Okay, it's mostly my fault - I tithed to Mat big time plus this week has been just bad.

What really made me crazy is that there is the %$!*$%$ case sensitive coding structure. Plus, the editors that I've been using do not tell me that variablename.Length is wrong and variablename.length is right. Because sometimes, some properties can go either way.

I spend more time trying to figure out why something is not working and it turns out to be the case sensitive bs.

I felt like screaming when I finally figured out what I had done wrong.

That's not counting the just plain typos. sendRequest(reuqest1, url) should have been sendRequest(request1, url) and drat it! It took me an hour and half to figure that one out.

Oh well. Midterm next week. Programming portion was supposed to be posted tonight, but I guess prof is running behind.

That's what you get for programming in BASIC for so many years. *G* I, on the other hand, am a Java and C programmer, so case sensitivity is the rule for me *G*

Oh, and My Temple thanks you for your generous tithe. ;)

It would make much more sense if it were CONSISTENT!!!

You know, all lower case or all upper case not this wishy washy sometimes, lower, sometime upper!!!

As Mat said, this is the norm for me, since I have programmed in Java and C for so long. It's BASIC that isn't consistent to me, since you can mix and match case all the time :)

Yeah, but in BASIC, our standard is to program in UPPER CASE all the time =)

Your standard is your standard. Learn the magic of the compiler error :)

Yeah, so very hard on the eyes! *G*

well, I dunno about what you're working with, but C and Java are usually pretty consistent. In C, all of the standard stuff is lower case, despite the case sensitivty, except for constants, which are generally all upper case. In Java, there's a defined style: variables and methods start with a lower case character then have mixed case, classes start with an upper case letter, etc. etc.
