Hello all-
This applet simulates a ball's trajectory. I had fun writing it and started to get to like Java. I am pretty new to it and this is mostly just gui stuff.
Just wanted to share my creation.

It worked fine for me, except that it was incredibly slow. Even just pushing a putton took at least a second to register. I have:

Windows 2000 Pro
Pentium 4 1.7ghz
256mb RAM
Internet Explorer 5.50
Java Plug-In 1.3.1

Hey folks-
Sorry it didn't work very well. If all you see is a gray box, you might not have the java plug-in for your browser. I have not tested it with a dial-up connection...maybe it runs really slow on that. I also don't know how fast the telocity servers are that are hosting the page.

It runs pretty fast on my computer from the website:

Duron 950MHz
WinXP Pro
512MB PC133 SDRAM
Mozilla 1.0

It seemed a little slower in IE 6, I like Mozilla better though. I went ahead and put the source on the same page and the run (class) files so you could compile it yourself or download it and run it since it doesn't seem to be working well on the website. I used a thread for the animation and probably didn't do it in the most efficient way. When it loads up, my CPU utilization goes to 100%!
This is not the right way to do it IMO, but I still consider it an alpha level program.

-Thanks for the input guys....
