Do you have this as an applet somewhere, or an application?  I've
got a cyrix 155  and a cyrix 233, dual-boot both.  I'll be happy to
test it out under win95 and Linux.  If it's an applet, I'll run
it on my Ultra Sparc at work too, and nt machines :)

Hrm, the 8 processor workstation might be fun too!

On a similar, OT note:  How many simultaneous connections can you have
under Java.  In other words, it's usually limited to around 256
under Linux, but you can fork to get around it.  Not sure you can
fork a java app.  So, does the java runtime take care of this, or
does it take some more insidious hack?  (I want to stay Pure Java if
at all possible.)
