Now that my WikiHow article How to Plot the Mandelbrot Set by Hand has been nominated for a Featured Article (please feel free to add your support!), I've rekindled my interest in the Mandelbrot set. In the last 24 hours, about 20 of which I've been awake, I wrote my own Mandelbrot applet (source), which uses the same coloring scheme as my colorForth program (as of today, anyway... this may change) but renders much more quickly, using a smaller portion of the screen. Right-click to zoom out, drag the mouse diagonally across an area to zoom in on it. Run it as an application, or in appletviewer, to see the debugging information, which includes the center and the zoom level, and you'll be able to duplicate the output using mandelgen.py.
