Am I the only one who thought this movie was terrible? Mccon...the main character's accent was absolutely terrible, the daughters acting was even worse, and it seemed to be full of contrived melodrama.

Is "omg blackholes drag on space-time" really enough physics to make something so automatically accepted by "geeks"?

Everyone's a farmer despite automation that just arbitrarily dissapeared? He drives a truck that would be old in the PRESENT?

Hyperspace (presumably?) shown with a bunch of shelves because movies....and he quickly ends up EXACTLY where he wants to in the vastness of space AND time?

I may be forgetting a few details...its been a bit, but I remember this movie as just...crap.

It is handled automatically. If I do Integer.parseInt(n) where n is a string gathered from user input, and reads "122s5" it throws a numberformatexception.

Just catch the exception and inform the user that he needs to knock that shit off. Or just let the user type a letter into that field in the first place.

Movie tavern is amazing, reasonably priced food (REAL food - full meals), a full bar, and plush-ish office chair seating.
