Thats Mr Smartass, thanks

I was told I couldn’t post a photo to an internal discussion forum, because the photo was copyrighted and we weren’t allowed to distribute copies. So I wrote a quick embedded Java applet which downloads that one photo from the original web site every time someone opens the document, and displays it inline. I put the applet in my posting instead, end of problem. Once again, stupid legal restrictions waste resources…

Java appletry

Finished my first Java applet with double-buffered graphics. Had salad for lunch. I hate salad, but I’m trying to eat more healthy food. The attempt was rather spoiled when someone left out free M&M cookies in the office kitchen. Listening to Babybird somehow makes me wish I still lived in the UK. I’ll have to read Private Eye this evening to make the feeling go away.
