in thread OO vs. global variables...

Uhhh... I'd just assumed that because a Point has a location, the Point would know its location. But, thinking about it, it doesn't have to, does it? A point is essentially a state-less object. Any point should be able to be picked up and moved to another spot on the board and no changes need be made (from the Point's point of view, so to speak.) It would be the Board's responsability to make sure that the Points are all working together, and that would include things like layout and the like. Ohhhh.

Hrmmm... I think I like that thinking methodology. I'd started applying it to some of the application, but hadn't realized just how pervasive a paradigm-shift it really way.

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.
