Scriptaculous JavaScript Slideshow

·
Found this amazing code by obie at http://blog.caboo.se/articles/2006/01/19/easy-scriptaculous-slideshow:

var album = { 
  startup: function() { 
    new PeriodicalExecuter(album.cycle, 5) // change image every 5 seconds 
  }, 
  cycle: function() { 
    new Effect.Fade('image', { // the id of the 
containing the photos duration: 1, fps: 50, afterFinish: function() { new Ajax.Updater('image','/album/next', { // URL for next tag asynchronous: true, onSuccess: function() { new Effect.Appear('image', { duration: 1, fps: 50, queue:'end' }) } }) } }) } } window.onload = album.startup I want to tweak it so that an earlier event precaches the next image instead.
