    I like to get into FreeSlots (formerly SimSlots) daily because I like to play video poker and don't want to bother with "real" online casinos or risk real money. It's probably the only place, with rare exceptions, that I have occasion to use Java.

    My Java RTE is supposedly right up to date, Update 21, and when the site starts to load the game applet I get the following warning popup as of about 3 weeks ago (probably more or less the same time as updating to 21). While there's nothing to indicate what app is generating the message, the wording implies it's from Java itself.

    So far I've just hit the OK button to continue loading, with no apparent ill effects. Anyone else run into this, and confirm that (a) it's coming from Sun Java, and (b) in this particular case, not a matter for concern? Oh, and (c) would be nice too, if appropriate -- any way to suppress the warning for this applet?
