I'm glad you like my news letter. I attempt to be as informative as
possible about what I am doing, and try to connect with everyone as best
In this case we both share an interest in Java, and so far I am very
happy I have started porting everything to Java. It is performing well
for a language not compiled to native code, and the new warm startup for
Java classes Sun added to Java 6 really kick butt with exicution speed.
That's really the main reason i decided to go with Java 6 instead of
Java 5. The execution speeds of Java 6 applications has been really
updated and run smoother than before. In a game playing several sound
clips and performing hundreds of concurrent processor intensive threads
really need that added boost in execution speed.
By the way,since we are talking about Java 6 verses Java 5 a friendly
tech tip came my way this afternoon that might be of interest to you. A
fellow blind Mac user emailed me after my news letter went out, and
pointed out that Apple has released a Java 6 upgrade for Mac OS Leopard.
I went to the Apple site and found out they now have Java 1.6.0_05 so it
looks like all of my operating systems are covered as far as a
compatible Java runtime is concerned.
I'll be in touch with 7128 in a couple of days about the stuff we
discussed a month or so back off list. Please, pass that on to Synthia,
and tell her if she wants to call I think she has my home phone number
or I will call her once I locate the email with her email address and
