Then the reference to Brave New World doesn't make sense. (one of the themes in the book is all about how human relationships can become trivial and people can not be monogamous or really care for each other)

Re: PC != Windows

I don't get bugged with it because most people only know Windows as "PC". It's like how most people know their processor as just "the brain of the computer" not as an Intel or ARM or AMD processor.

Re: Bioweapons research on Plum Island, NY

Bah, I never understood the effectiveness of the Geneva Conventions. Under what circumstances would you ever get 2 sides to agree to only kill each other in a humane manner, but couldn't get them to just not kill each other in the first place?

The Java for Dummies book is actually really good. You should probably learn Visual Basic before you jump into a high level language like that from HTML.
