Okay, maybe it shouldn't be in my portfolio.

I had just received an email containing the Java 1.0 Specification. I was wicked excited.

Pulled an all-nighter. And if you mess with the timing and sort of squint, it does have a swirly, Lava Lap quality, though the dynamics are not quite right.

Problem Definition: 

To master Java AWT (Java 1.0)

Approach: 
To parameterize: Moore's Law. Actually by adjusting the timing loops down, the effect isn't all too bad. An internal method added to the init() could look for processor speed and scale the parameters. In my next life perhaps.
