Response to: Uncaught Exceptions! Help!

I started drafting a reply that wasn't much help.
Maybe my writing will get better and more inspirational if I look at it for several days. I don't know .
I had a senior programmer who once said "you whine and complain when your compiler gives you little information in your syntax errors, wait until you have problems like mine" . She then grimaced and said what her problems were , execution errors involving fundamental theory and being so good that she was constantly assigned to debug other people's programs and downgrade languages to make things readable for them .
This wasn't an answer to my ambitions, but if I tried real hard I realized that she was making a joke to make things a bit easier to take .
