    So, does anyone ever actually use it? If so, when? Whenever I look up at that bit at the top of the window, it always says "# of users online: 0"...

    I noticed that too. Does anyone actually hit the happy hour?

    I've never been able to get it to work. It won't install on my laptop.

    I'm there quite often, although I miss meeting Bigfeet there.
    Mind you I'm 7 hrs ahead of you Americans, so we won't meet that often.

    I can't get on there very often either. Java issues I suspect.

    Just a heads up- Microsoft wont automatically load this to your PC when it asks for it. Also for some reason Microsoft wont let you just download the file for the "Java machine". Only way thru Microsoft is install a service pak.

    As a Java programmer, I gotta say 2 things. For one, it's Java Virtual Machine (JVM), not Virtual Java Machine :) And secondly, don't get the MS one, MS don't adhere to the Java standard, the MS JVM doesn't have everything the Sun one has. After all, Sun invented Java.

    To begin with, I think Windows XP was shipped without the Java Virtual Machine. If you bought XP soon after it came out, that could be the reason. I don't know when they started including the JVM with it tho.
