Notes on the Java client
The java client requires Sun's Java browser plug-in.
This client works in Firefox and Mozilla browsers, Opera, Safari, Konquerer, and even Internet Explorer (although the Syndicate does not condone its use in any circumstance).
It automatically connects to our server first, and then channel
planetside. The first window that opens, called "Status," is the status
of your connection to the server. This window is handy for executing private commands that you wouldn't want another room to see (if you leave out the leading /, for example), such as sending queries to other people.
Once the connection is made, the window for #planetside automatically opens.
