Short mini-rant

After the jump.

Illustration for article titled Short mini-rant

So for my Java class, we had to submit an important assignment as a zip file with the source code inside of it.

Well for whatever reason, my computer wasn’t making the zip file, so I just made a jar file from the terminal and submitted that. For those who don’t know, a jar file is pretty much just a zip file with a different extension, it can be extracted exactly the same way as a zip.


Well I got a zero on it for “Not submitting Java files”, which I absolutely did. I downloaded the jar I uploaded, and was able to extract them and get the .java files perfectly fine.

This is some bullshit of a high order.

In good news, my think pad came in. So that’s good, gonna install the SSD today and install the OS tomorrow.
