Wrote my first Java GUI app

I've been looking for an excuse to learn Java for years now and I finally found one.  Over the weekend, my ISP was flaking out on me, so I decided to write an app to monitor how often my ISP forcefully disconnected my open TCP connections (which is really annoying for IRC usage).  I initially wrote the app in C# as that is what I am more familiar with, then ported it to Java, using SWT for the UI.

As you can see, there is a defect in the Java version with the time counter, but otherwise it seems to work pretty well.

UPDATE: Wow, just tried to see how hard it would be to get the Java version running on linux and it turned out to be pretty easy!  I am impressed!
