Should quit whining about adobe…

tho’ it’s all related… Spending oh, at least an hour here, again, not the first (or second, or third, or fourth time) … just trying to figure out why Eclipse decided there aren’t any library files.   I forgot again that it’s not enough to close entirely out of the program; I have to *shut down my computer* with the flash drive still in it for it not to make this foulup.   It will work on the Eclipse *in the flash drive* … but not from Eclipse in my computer.   Oops, now it won’t do that either.   Can’t remember the forty-three things I did  before I found the right trick the last time this happened.    This is why if you don’t do this 24/7 it’s not worth doing — not because the *tasks* are hard but because of the constant inane, random meaningless rituals which must be performed exactly correctly.     I know at one point I actually cut and paste the flogging text from the code into completely different projects because no, Eclipse is *not* designed so you can just bring in a project nicely because real programming is just that much more complicated.

Except that no, I can’t even have a new project — sorry.   There is, no longer, the option of … making things in Eclipse.   I get the same big red exclamation point.   Shutting down my whole flogging computer now, which probably won’t work because … too late.   I moved files without shutting the whole thing down.   No, of course, there’s nothing in any directions that says you need to do that — you just have to know.
