This will probably continue to be the case until I am able to update
it.

I agree it needs an update, and in fact, it is about halfway done
through a complete rewrite from scratch, but it's in pieces. The plan
for tonight is to get the Java gateway working so I can begin real
testing with it tomorrow, and then fix the FAQ.

Feel free to contribute to the FAQ; email me a Q&A, and I can slap it
in a lot easier than deciding that it needs to be addressed, then
writing it, THEN slapping it in there.

I'm sorry I'm slow about getting things turned around here, my load
average is extremely high... I'm involved in well over a dozen
different projects, my _inbox_ is now over 550 messages deep, and I'm
literally thousands of messages behind in mailing lists... Sorry, but
you'll just have to either deal with the FAQ or give me a hand.

You're probably right. But guess who has to do that... heh. (You
just can't win, can ya? :-) I like deschall-tech, but I'm going to
kick this around while doing the other-tonight-stuff before doing it.
