Ahh, Java, perpetually runner-up to Flash and Shockwave when it comes to on-line games. Personally I've always preffered it to the other system. It may be riddled with bugs, immensely error-prone and over-fond of memory leaks, but the games made with it feel real in an entirely different way from the flash ones. More solid. In Java games you can feel the forces of physics, controlled and unleashed. In flash you just seem to... float. Plus Java games are better-looking (sprites/3D objects kick vector ass) and take up way less resources.

Here's a good example of what can be done in Java. Kick the pyramid-top onto the pyramid, but make sure you've flipped the road-surface necessary...

This is what I get for leacing my computer on all night. You're supposed to be finding stuff to pitypost, not playing games. This is probably why you haven't done anything for the past two weeks, isn't it?
