TriadCity Message of the Day

We're hearing reports of intermittent bugs in the new Java plugin. Drag. Sometimes the applet freezes: can't type anything. Sometimes it goes all white. Sometimes it partly freezes: can type, but no responses appear.

According to JavaSoft's web site, there are a couple of things you can do to minimize these intrusive glitches:

1. Open the Java Plugin Control Panel, and click the "Show console" radio button. This opens a Java debugging window when applets are launched. Seems to make the browser more stable.

2. De-install your previous versions of the plugin.

We'll keep a close watch on the JavaSoft bug tracker and will post any new info that seems pertinent. Also, we'll experiment with possible workarounds on our end.

Sorry for the hassle!
