Hiya, Everyone!

Looking through Program Files I find that I have over time accumulated 6 versions of Sun Java ranging from 1.5.0.03 to 1.6.0.10 b33 and taking up 400MB of disk space.

I really don't understand what Sun Java is for (I gather it is for games but I do not use games) but anyway do I really need all 6 versions?

I am told that M$ Java is much better so should I install it and if so how do I get hold of it? (I gather Sun legally forced M$ to discontinue M$ Java.)

A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version

www.breakthroughversion.com

The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

I was using Win98SE but was forced to switch to WinXP SP3 when I recently bought a new machine.

The latest version of sun java is not bad and relatively secure.
I would download it from:-
http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Utilities/Disk_Maintenance_and_Repair_Utilities/HDHacker.html
Before installing go to Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel and uninstall all previous versions and then install the downloaded version. You should be good to go.
