            Thanks, that works. Is there a link to that page or a hidden secret? I was browsering the whole site and couldn't find it. .

              Well ok, but please don't tell anyone else. It was supposed to be a secret. ;)

              1. Open your favorite search engine (shhh!! - I used the one that begins with 'G' but don't spread that around or everyone will start using it)
              2. Enter 'oracle java downloads' in the search area
              3. The first page will show 'Java SE Downloads - Oracle. I know you entered 'oracle' as the first word but that has it as the last word. Thats ok.
              4. Click on that link and you will get transported magically to this page
              http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

              Now, this is the tricky part that almost no one ever discovers. Near the top of the page it says 'Java SE Downloads'. Just under that are 4 new links. I'll post the one you should click on below but so I don't spoil the surprise try to guess which one it is before you peek at the answer.
              Is it

              1. Latest Release?
              2. Next Release (Early Access)?
              3. Embedded Use?
              4. Previous Releases?

              If you give up look below:
              (Surprise! It's #4!)

                Depends on where you're from. In some parts of the world people seem to prefer the one that begins with 'B' and represents an annoying sound. Before that it used to be that 'Y' cry for attention one.

                Hilariously complete post otherwise :)
