Thank you Reg
I've been battling with this issue most of this afternoon - decided to take a break and read the reg website - first thing I noticed was this article - followed the link and it all now works - hurraah for the Reg.
Java Slow ?
Not on my quad core - it now runs as fast as my basic programs did on my commodore 64.

This is an out of date and old fashioned method - pointing the bleeding thing at the wall sockets only gonna waste valuable bum scratching energy. What they need to do , seeing as they can get IP signals down the electricity cabling - is to assign an IPV6 address to each socket so's I can write some cron scripts to shut them down every night. This system could then be merged with a TIVO web-based front end for scheduling any nightly recordings.
I'm currently d'ling her entire private collection of amateur videos via emule - and its coming down at faster than 5k per second!
