fall through case sucks


ugh just wasted an hour tracking down a bug (Objective-C), only to realize i left out a break statement between two case blocks. this ended up looping between the two cases.  i seem to recall someone telling me i should avoid switch statements at all cost, because it offers very little benefit (and these bugs are bound to happen). ruby got it right with their "when 1,2,3" style switch statements.

bartCheater


checked in bartCheater on GitHub. basically useless to anyone other than myself, but it tells you what reverse-flow train you can take and until what station so you can get a seat on the BART. It runs on Sinatra w/ Prototype, and optimized for my Android G1.  It's my first project running Sinatra since tinkering with pinkyurl. Also trying Heroku for the first time and setting it all up was pretty easy.  i set up CoolCurlings.com on Heroku as well, and might switch ChoiBean.com into a Sinatra project on Heroku as well.
