Sorry... let me requalify that. I really wasn't speaking of Java,
just the Java language. It seems to me better designed in many areas
than C++. (though the lack of C stuff gets annoying at
times. Sometimes you just don't *want* to use object oriented
programming, gosh darn it... makes you miss variables and functions
and things).

I do agree that writing a server that ran as Java bytecode would be a
bad idea. Although there are compilers out there (mostly commerical
ones) that will compile Java to native processor code.

But it was just a random thought... I think we ought to stick with
C. Or maybe we should just use BASIC...
