Looks promising.  I don't have a lot of experience with Java programs 
though.  Having a hard time figuring out how to install it.  I 
downloaded the install.jar and tried opening it with the JRE java bin.  
Also downloaded the source, but clueless there too.  Only other Java app 
I have run was Mindterm in Windows.  This will be a first for me in 
Linux though.  Any suggestions?
