Thanks, that sure makes me feel pathetic.  As a side note, with what
little experience I have right now, I do prefer python to java, but my
supervisor doesnt.
Another side note, one of the main reasons we're using Java is because
we took over the project from an inept software group and the project
owner hoped that we could salvage some of their code.  We would have
been better off starting over.
