Yeah, shortly after I posted that, I remembered that. :)
Also, for the beginners. you need to initialize dateCache to a Dictionary.
the normal way to do that is to have an instance side method called
super initialize. "NEVER NEVER leave this out"
dateCache := Dictionary new.
When you save this, squeak will ask "I dunno dateCache", and you should
make it an instance variable.
