Java Applet v0.1.0 up and running

I've finished getting the Java Applet client up and running, and you can find it at www.livejournal.com/dev/applet. As it mentions on the page, you'll need the Java Plug-in for it to work, which most newer browsers should have (and there's a link on the page to get it). There's also a link to the source code, and an address to send any bug reports or suggestions to.

It's a little slow loading at the moment, but I think I can fix this by putting all of the class files into a Jar (which results in fewer http requests/transfers). Let me know what you think. It's not a great replacement for any of the major clients, but I think will eventually make a good alternative to the web interface for people who can't install a client on the machine they're using.

Oh, it's called "Pepys". If you're wondering why, this might explain it :)
