    Is there a way to compile Java without downloading the programs? (I tried the Sun program, but it was 50mb+, and I'm on a dial-up connection -_-)

    You need to have an SDK (aka JDK), yes. I'm a dial-up user as well, so I understand your apprehension, but you'll just have to start the download and do something else for a few hours.

    If you have a download manager (like GetRight), be sure to use it. If you already have the Java Run-time Environment (JRE) installed, you could use the Sun Download Manager instead (see the Notes at the bottom of the JDK download page).

    By the way, the latest JDK is 49.52MB. There's also an on-line installer (33.70MB), which should allow you to omit some of the optional components (don't know personally: I've never used it).

    I'm downloading it now, and it's been downloading for 7 minutes, and it's only at 5%..

    Lol, that's nothing -- the longest download I've done was three weeks...

    And then, of course, the phone needs to be used for some reason, so I have to disconnect, and the download goes... well.... ka-poof!!

    Hence the recommendation of using a download manager
