Kaolin Fire with GUD Issues 0 through 5

This is a step above "Ball", and is meant to explore using external images, and double buffering. Very simple, I promise. I also did a version with image observer, to "intelligently" load the image, but it doesn't appear to work "out of the box" anymore, and I don't care to investigate...

First, the flickering bear: Bear.java

Then, with double buffering: BearDB.java

An amazing difference, no?

I am soooo fake pre-loading this image so the navigation doesn't skip while loading the over state.  I know I could use the sliding doors technique to avoid this fate, but I am too lazy.
