Hot Tip: Getting Rid of that Annoying License Dialog Box

Do you know the annoying dialog box I’m talking about? I bet you do. It’s the one that comes up every time you launch the applet viewer to make you agree to Sun’s license. Do you want to get rid of it? If so make a directory called .hotjava in your java/bin directory. You won’t see it again.
