Discussions elsewhere (in more than one place; coincidence?) reminded me that in the long long distant past I was “hot” java programmer (“hotjava”, geddit? Ah shaddup!). I actually wrote what I believe was the first website Java applet sold commercially in the UK, back in 1995. It was a teaser site for the SciFi Channel (which was due to launch around then) called “zorg”. We got involved ‘cos we were Sun partners and the client had gone to Sun asking for some Java development.
