I did as you suggested! At this point in my exposure to Self, the
experience was less than rewarding. No matter! I now know how to
"research" things in Self. The output of selecting 'senders' went off
the radar it was so large. How does one scroll in an output Morph like
that? Would have been nice if the window had has a scroll bar. The
Garbage Collector was working overtime while the output was being sent
to my screen. What was all that about?
