Today is near one month as our Ultrastudio.org, encyclopedia with Java applets (code reviews, service side build and approval workflow) is online. During this time, the site has grown from the initial 14 applet "seed set" about 50 applets at the moment, each of them having explaining article next to it. Some articles reuse Wikipedia material, but many are differently written, aiming for short, clear introduction rather than full of coverage. The numbers are not that big, and actually only tiny fraction of even very promising topics is covered, but the site already gets in average about 154 page views per day (excluding spiders and all Switzerland). Many applets have been launched. Ultrastudio.org is currently heading the "top 5 %" rating list at Jars.com. This seems enough for the project of our age and profile.

Great to have IceTea plugin that makes such projects possible.
