Each instance has its own rate of oozing, so some are faster than others. It
has 9 methods and one class. It's not good for anything, though it might
make a demo if you're hard up! :-)
Cool. I opened up 6 of them and they are having a race across the screen.
[Norton, Chris] And... they are even cooler when you hide their handles!
Try changing their stepTime to 1. Funky... This thing looks like it
belongs in a Lava Lamp (TM). Thanks Dave! Any chance that you'll improve
them so that they can absorb other morphs that they ooze over in the world
(like the real Blob)? :-)
I have to say... on my 266 Windoze NT box, these guys really slow down my
Morphic. Although I will admit that 2.7 seems to be much more responsive
than 2.6. Some parts seem downright snappy! Thanks Andreas & co. if you're
lurking on this note!
