Subject RE: Can anybody tell how to setup struts in Netbeans IDE
Date Thu, 21 Nov 2002 18:46:04 GMT
Well, I would know.  When I bought this laptop months ago, I gave my old one
away.  It was a PII 233 w/64MB.  I ran NetBeans on it one time......and never
tried it again....LOL.  That was about the most painful thing I've watched in
quite a while.  I thought I was smelling smoke for a few minutes.

So my new laptop is a 1 gig with 128 (which I upgraded about 2 weeks ago to
512), so Eclipse is now SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEMING!!!!
