Well, back on the xmlrpc biz.
Jeff gave me an argument that I could not counter. HTTP is the prefered protocol couse it's one of the few things open in firewalls nowadays. Unfortunatly, it's true. And if we must use http, I don't see why we should not use xmlrpc. At least somewhat flexible.
So, I coded a simple proof-of-concept server for Jeff. He is showing it to some people. Hope they like it. :-)
On a side note, I'm looking around to buy a Palm. My prefered model is the CHEAP one :-) If you have one of those, please, drop me a line :-)
