Subject Re: Socket Fun

Good idea but I am using different ObjectOutputStreams. The first one is 
to a byte array and the other is to a Socket Stream. The difference is 4 
bytes 179 for the socket and 174. I am going to guess it is a length 
variable that is added to the byte array stream. I have gone to 
completely serializing outside the socket stream which works, but I 
thought the difference was interesting and worth bringing up.
