About !*$!*&! time...
I have (finally... sorry) updated the documentation on how to use the Java host software. It's linked from the left menu bar of the RepRap website under Using a RepRap and from that link too.
I've also put in a few tweaks, like a 20mm grid on the build base to make it easier to position things.
Comments and abuse welcome...

since I have never used the software before, i'll be the perfect guinea pig for the new instructions.
just a thought: have you thought about releasing the software as a package for linux?
users would add repo.reprap.org to their repositories and could easily install all dependencies and get updates...
not sure how much work it is to set up something like this so this is just a suggestion off the top of my head without any real understanding behind it :)
Hoping to get my own reprap in a few months and seeing the progress being made is fascinating and encouraging.
Have to build up a new extruder right now, but will try out the software soon.
