It's time that SOAP had a directory.

Seattle earthquake reports: Brent Simmons, David Brown, Sheila Simmons, Rick Winfield, Glenn Fleishman.

Hello. "My name is Julian Bond, and I'm addicted to News."

Tom Bradford: "My head is about to explode from all of the friggin' acronyms."

Survey: Should XML Bastard change its name?

PythonWare's SOAP validates.

The home page of now shows the current top 100 RSS channels being scanned hourly by signed-on Radio users. The purpose of this list is to allow people outside the community to see what we're tuned into. It's recalculated every hour at one minute past the hour. Of course it's also available in XML.

Ole and Lena were laying in bed one night when the phone rang, Ole answered it and Lena heard him yell, "Well, how the hell should I know, that's over 2000 miles away!" and he hung up. Lena says "Who was that Ole?" Ole says "The hell if I know, some weirdo wants to know if the coast is clear."

I'm taking a few minutes to explore the NASDAQ stock-quote-in-XML service. Looks like a tremendous amount of thought has gone into this service. One of the elements of the quote record is the logo and url for the company. So it's a directory of images as well as numeric stock data.

When it's ready for the masses the coffee mug (to the left) will become a permanent fixture on Scripting News. Wes Felter had some difficulty with localhost vs I have to write a page explaining the "Thousands of Channels" that Radio can deliver. I want to be able to post to my Radio Blog via email. Dave Seidel still hasn't connected from Python to Radio via SOAP.
