Kickin' butt!

Got to power through a number of bugs yesterday/this morning. I wasn't really supposed to be working on containers, but they were so close, I just couldn't resist. Besides, that's the fun part about doing open source right? You get to work on the parts you really want to work on!

So my container windows are fully functioning now. You can drag them around, and resize them too! Here's a screeny:

Here's a fun story for you. We have lots of transparent images that end up overlapping each other. There is no way in AJAX to make the hit detection take any image alpha into account. So you end up playing a very frustrating game of Towers of Hanoi, trying to get to the image you want to move around. This seems to me to be a huuuge gaping hole in the AJAX process. So on a whim, I decided to email Brendan Eich about this. If you don't know him, he's the guy that invented javascript. Also, they just hired him as the Chief Architect at Mozilla. Well, he replied back last night, and CC'd lots of big wigs over there, basically saying, "You're right. We need to look into this." Hopefully they can slip something into FF V1.5 before it goes gold! W00t! My friend Bill was like, "Dude, I can't believe you had the balls to email him!" Heh. :-)
