Haystack – small installation glitch and then The Big Wait(TM)

Ok I had to download the famous Haystack everyone is talking about…

First launch failed because apparently the monster is compiling some Java code during its execution. However it doesn't call the jdk but the jre – so the quickest solution was to copy tools.jar in haystack/lib/java. Then I've waited … and waited … and waited … some 45 minutes (Athlon xp 1800+, 512mb ram, some serious swapping noticed).

I'm not extremely enthusiastic about the software – probably my brain needs some time to re-adjust with the all-in-one paradigm … if it ever does :)
