Does anybody have any updates on the Java problem?

I really want to do the NYT acrostic.

1. One of my computer maven Facebook friends said that the main problem is that it installs

other programs in a negative checkoff form. In other words, it installs the extra software unless you specifically tell it not to. The danger comes about when people do not uncheck this option.

My computer maven friend said that I should install the update but be careful to note all the checked options and uncheck them.

2. Yikes. I'm not even sure what this means.

I went to the Oracle website and I'm still not sure what to download or how to uncheck options.

Maybe I'll just skip my puzzle.

Thanks, though.

3. Here's an alternative ...

go to the library ... get the NY Times newspaper off the rack ...

go to the copier.

Have correct change.

4. No library. And the closest one (hours away by boat) does not have the NYT.

Thanks, though!
