PocketSmalltak is absolutely excellent except I recently tried 1.6 alpha 4
and it gave me nothing but walkbacks in the IDE, never mind anything I tried
write! I have a Sony Clie 770, hence my latest Squeak hack, a Palm GUI
designer (coming along). I thought if it's finished I'd volunteer it for
inclusion in the Squeak PST package...if I finish!

Re: PST, I tried to mail the contacts but it bounced. Any ideas on it's
current status? The web site looks the same and I downloaded the Squeak
stuff but it wouldn't even file in, I get this on other stuff to
sometimes..some error about 'doesNotUnderstand: 'Methods for stamp' or
something? Never really figured that one out. Perhaps I should have tried an
older version of Squeak?
