Java Jive

This site gives technical support on various topics, often previously posted to newsgroups such as:

Comprehensive support for these topics is not intended here, rather a collection of notes covering particular problems that generally are not well understood or explained.  For example, there are many otherwise quite good sites describing satellite rotor installation, but I've not seen one that correctly describes how to use the Sun to find the south point!
