    how do u know when 2 stop spending time on one code?

    expanding on the title, how do u know when 2 stop spending time on a code that is not working? or how long does it take 4 u 2 'give up'.

    it just took me 7 hours of straight worthless coding (+ the other countless hours b4) to realize it was time to stop and be happy with what i have.

    stupid java this just refreshed my memories about why i hated java in the first place. :/
    oh i'm sorry! i didn;t realize my fist was rushing to meet ur face!

    Yeah. It's the language's fault you couldn't get it right.

    And learn how to speak English. Reading your post is like pulling teeth.

    Don't worry about it, sometimes learning new things can be quite time-consuming. I'm sure that we've all ended up in our own coded loop-holes before.

    Ouch ouch... my eyes hurt! I can understand the ending and the first few words but I gave up on trying to read the rest of it.

    Well, lets get back on topic guys. I personally think that if you are having trouble with code, you shouldnt stop till you figure it out. If you want, put it on back burner for a while, and try to think about and learn the stuff you need to figure out a problem.

    Nah...Staying off topic has been far too interesting to stop now.

    I never give up on any code, sometimes I redo it from scratch but I never give up on it. And lets get back off topic now

    Nope, that's saddam's error. English isn't his first language, remember...

    the length of time I work before I give up keeps increasing each year... I used to think 3 or 4 non-productive hours on an assignment was ridiculous, but here at work I just scrapped 2 weeks worth of code to go back to an earlier version. (Luckily, after a few changes the earlier version worked great!)
    My programs don't have bugs, they just develop random features.
