Pomodoro code

Hi there,

I've been trying to run the Pomodoro code from the downloadable section (s3v1), but I'm getting the following errors when trying to run:

xception in Application start method Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: Exception in Application start method at com.sun.javafx.application.LauncherImpl.launchApplication1(LauncherImpl.java:917) at com.sun.javafx.application.LauncherImpl.lambda$launchApplication$156(LauncherImpl.java:182) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:745) Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException at com.teamtreehouse.pomodoro.Main.start(Main.java:15) at com.sun.javafx.application.LauncherImpl.lambda$launchApplication1$163(LauncherImpl.java:863) at com.sun.javafx.application.PlatformImpl.lambda$runAndWait$176(PlatformImpl.java:326) at com.sun.javafx.application.PlatformImpl.lambda$null$174(PlatformImpl.java:295) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at com.sun.javafx.application.PlatformImpl.lambda$runLater$175(PlatformImpl.java:294) at com.sun.glass.ui.InvokeLaterDispatcher$Future.run(InvokeLaterDispatcher.java:95)

Process finished with exit code 1

Here's a screenshot of my IDE http://imgur.com/gallery/CT8n4dV

Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Cheers, Luis
