Hi, I'm asking for assistance in obtaining a cd with the latest J2SDK on it. I'm on a dial-up internet connection, and can _not_ successfully download the J2SDK (for WindowsXP). Would someone be so kind as to snail-mail me a cd with the J2SDK and latest Java Documentation? Please PM if you can help me out with this. I'm trying to write some OOTP (Out Of The Park) utilities for the game on WindowsXP. Thanks much!

if you don't know, then ask. if you do know, then share. love is knowledge.

Hi Thomas.

Just burned a CD for you if you still need it...happy to send it to you, just let me know where.

It's 3:20am and I've got nothing better to do (other than stress over this I/O assignment I'm stuck on) May as well be useful!

Hey Nancy. I really appreciate this. I can't begin to tell you how many times I've bounced back and forth between programming languages (maybe programming wasn't meant to be for me), but I am back again from Visual Basic (gave up on it because I didn't feel like hacking a silly work-around just so I could load up a main form without a click event being registered on a radio button) to Java. My own experience tells me that each time you're somehow a step ahead of the last time, regardless of forgotten syntax :-) My email address is ''. I will reveal my postal address there, just because "you never know...". Again, thank you VERY much!

I agree. Here's the link:
