Problem found w/ this diary thing, it doesn't fit my schedule. meaning I will probably write in it at the end of my day, which is after midnight and thus the next day. One way around this is to in the morning just make a blank entry and edit it??? maybe.

Very long smalltalk hacking session till 4am. We now have a working WebPane. A WebPane, as we define it, is a model representation of a rendered webpage. We can stick that WebPane in a View and drag is all around the screen and scroll the page.

What makes our browser stand apart from the other ones being developed in our class is our image rendering. We are playing with different queueing mechanisms for downloading images from the web. Our intial work has been based on image size prioritization. That and playing with the number of current threads running, has all added for a interesting exercise. Maybe at the end of the semester, when the other teams won't benefit from Raping and Pasting our code, we will open source our work and submit it to the squeak community.
