Hi..
I tried my hand at playing the Rules Round-up game and it says initially that we need to play atleast three rounds to have the previlige to check our answers and get the correct ones.
Now looks like they need to alter the applet code a bit.
If you look at the JavaConsole of the browser
it displays omething like
next q: operators|Radio| | |B17|(#117)x=false; y=true; What is the result of x&&y?|false|"&&" is the short-circuit AND operator. If both values are true, the result is true, but Java won't bother to check the second condition if the first one is false.|true| | | | | | | | | |

... at the time the question is displayed in the applet. Now any one can see the right answer..
I dont mean to say that I can cheat through the test (whats the use of cheating a fun test) but I am saying that one can check his/her answers as and when the need arises, rather than going for the three round bargain that defeats the whole purpose of the 3 round message .
It would be nice if the javaconsole does not print the answers..
Hope that was useful
best regards
sri
ps: the test was great though

The new updated beta version doesn't have that problem. Have you tried it?

Since we're on the subject....
when I try to run 'Rules Round-up' game, a blank space appears!
I think this must be something to do with....
WARNING: If you have installed Sun's jdk version 1.3.1 or higher, you will need to disable the option to "Use Java 2 v1.3.1_02 for < applet <
but can anyone tell me how to disable the option?
Thanks

Yes, George, I have.

To disable the option in Internet Explorer, you should go to "Tools", "Internet Options...". Click on the Advanced tab and look for the option. Verify that the checkbox is unchecked. You will need to reboot your computer after you make the change.
