Welcome to JavaRanch!
Hmmm... A Mac should make it all the easier to run, because Java should be fully installed and ready to go.
Yes, they were messing with you. You don't want to run this code. Between the constructor and the run method you have an infinite series of calls that will keep creating and starting new threads forever (or until you run out of memory), positioning new JFrames randomly on your screen. Furthermore, that byte array ca3 is a "hidden" message that will show up as a JLabel. It says, "You shouldn't wait til the last minute to do your Java projects!"
We won't mess with you here, but you will need to show some effort. What, specifically, is your question about this project? Where is the code that you've written, and where are you having problems? [ July 22, 2007: Message edited by: marc weber ]
