Binary Data to Go: Using XML-RPC to Serve Up Charts on the Fly:
"Where SOAP is a generalized, object-oriented, messaging protocol that is designed to carry arbitrary XML payloads across any network protocol, XML-RPC is a simple procedural protocol designed only to make remote function calls. Lest you get the impression that XML-RPC is inferior to SOAP, there are a good number of everyday problems that XML-RPC can solve adroitly."

"For instance, XML-RPC can transport binary data as base64-encoded messages, much the way email clients send attachments. Because this feature is somewhat rarely used in XML-RPC applications, it's worth taking a look at a Web service that creates simple charts for client programs using this technique."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
