This looks very cool; I signed up for an account. It freaked me out a bit to notice that you're programmatically editing my Java configuration (to disable DirectDraw).

How serious is the bug that you're working around with that?

I'm glad I was watching the console and noticed that change, because I really do not want that changed on my system. My own website uses Java applets with some animation involved, and tweaking my Java config like that means that if my users have a problem with DirectDraw, I wouldn't be able to reproduce it (nor would notice it in testing). If I hadn't noticed the log comments I'm not sure I would have ever figured out that the config file had been secretly altered by a signed applet.
