Update to header structure

I have updated how the header structure is represented in jnetpcap. Currently the header was simply described in native structures in 2 properties: offset and length. The offset is the offset into the overall packet buffer where the header starts and length property stored how many bytes long the header is. So offset + length pointed at the first byte past the header.

Website forum and iPhone support

I have updated the website forum with new and more forum like look and feel. This should make it easier for most of us to actually move around in there.

Also the website is now completely iPhone friendly. So please feel free to check it out. Hopefully I will be able to make it blackberry friendly as well, but for now iPhone looks real good. No zooming in required and all the unnecessary fluff you don't want on the small screen is gone.
