No, the Squeaksource wiki is completely useless. You cannot link to it,
you cannot index it, it might as well not exist. Instead of pointing you
to, e.g., http://squeaksource.com/ToolBuilder/wiki?page=Mumble I need to
tell you: Go to http://squeaksource.com/ToolBuilder.html. Then click on
the Wiki button. On the page find the link to "bla". Click on the link.
This gets you to the "bla" page. On that page find the link to "foo".
Click on that link. Then find the link to "mumble". On that page you can
the information you're looking for. Oh and Google? What's a Google?
