Quick wins with Java 6 update 10

So, the other day I needed a count down timer. For the pomodoro technique. A quick search on the net: java timer applet gives this http://javaboutique.internet.com/JavaTimer/ Seems like it was uploaded 2000-12-11. (Nice thing about Java. Just works, also with old stuff.)

Problem solved. But, it would be funny to see if I could use any of the new features of Java 6 update 10, so I downloaded the source code, updated the html-file to include <PARAM name="draggable" value="true"/> in the applet tag.

Open from the downloaded folder, alt-drag, WOW, it works! Cool!!!
