Hi Karl. Yes the jigzone site is fine for seeing if your java browser plugin
is working ok, and the jigsaws are more fun than the other 2 stocktrading
sites I have listed, which run java applets for showing a continuous update
of the stock prices.
Btw. I posted a bug report for the icedtea browser plugin (that's all the GCJ
stuff that turns up in Firefox's about:plugins with the default F8 install).
Apparently the problem has been resolved. See the bug report below. The fix
has been pushed to Fedora rawhide, and how soon it will turn up in F8, I
don't know, but it will be interesting to see if websites that require java,
now work with the icedtea browser plugin.
All the best in dealing with your current family problem.
