javafx is up and ^H^H^H^H^H^Hrunning

With all this fuzz about JavaFX (which I've never cared for so far, and always thought it was something related to the FX TV channel), I decided to check the website. But to my surprise (or not!), all I got was a lousy "Your Application Server is now running" message, as you can see on this screenshot



Ironically, another post says:



You might want to go directly over the the JavaFX website to download the JavaFX SDK, but if you work in NetBeans 6.5 you don't have to bother.



Yep, you might want to go, but there is nothing there...



Final note/disclaimer: yes, this is a trolling blog. But I couldn't resist - almost 2 years in the making and the web server can't handle it? It reminds me that IBM ad about the Cheddar city website.

when the site was still running Flash applets instead of (presumably, they don't seem to work) JavaFX applets it looked like crap but was at least stable. Very nice marketing strategy ;)

It happened at the Europeana (http://dev.europeana.eu/) launch too.

The site has been up and down all morning. e.g. after the "your app server is now running" message it started running again but slowly. At this moment it's been replaced with a simple web page that has pointers to places you can download it. I guess when the whole network descends on one computer that it demonstrates the fallacy of "the network is the computer" ... eh?
