You have done your part and now you have put the ball

the internet or your computer has problems displaying
Java applets.

Which then takes me to a FAQ page:


I had sun's java on fedora 7 and loading the bubbles
takes the CPU to 99-100% so it fares no much better
using Sun as Fedora's IcedTea does not run, protecting
your CPU from going to 99-100% which is a good deal in
