I recently updated Java on my Windows machine.  Probably won’t be happening very many more times.  Now when I connect to my (old) webcam or web addressable UPS, I get the following threat from Java:


Java threat

Really?  “Running unsigned applications like this will be blocked in a future release”?!?  Who are you to FORCE me to have “signed applications” on all my devices?  How am I supposed to get my old webcam upgraded to have signed apps?  Who’s going to convince my UPS manufacturer that they have to hire some engineer to sign their apps??  Until you can promise me that all my current equipment (that I trust with unsigned apps) will get signed apps before you assert your mandatory block of said apps, stop threatening me!!
