SOAP Do Groove Web Services really need a local web server? Wouldn’t it be better to do SOAP over standard input and standard output when you just need to integrate on a single machine? [matt.griffith] Well, I've yet to see a SOAP toolkit that doesn't ship with a HTTP transport, whilst SOAP::Lite it the only one i know that ships with stdin/out support. In addition certain platforms (*cough*cough* asp.net), are overly tied to HTTP.
storage My CD collection has massively overrun the shelves it currently lives on, so I've been looking at CD racks, the AV Mechanica ones look great, but ouch, are expensive, the boltz ones look more reasonably priced, anyone got any recommendations ?
Million dollar markup Google applies their algorithms to millions of web pages for a single purpose: keyword search. I want to be able to reuse my own content in millions of ways, including things nobody has thought of yet. They need million-dollar code; I need million-dollar markup. (810 words) [dive into mark] Good stuff (as usual) from Mark, I particularly liked IE 5: the Netscape 4 of a new generation.
chunky The fix for the chunked transfer problem i ran into last night, is now checked in to CVS.
portability ..... Personally, I'm interested in seeing how Mac OS X handles the binary portability problem that seems to be endemic to C/C++ in the *nix world as it continues to evolve. [IUnknown.com: John Lam's Weblog on Software Development] I've built Carbon based executables on OSX 10.2 that run on MacOS 9.0.4 and up.
/fixImports Christian Weyer emailed me because the WSDL Wizard chokes on the Google API WSDL. This is actually because there's a problem with the WSDL, its missing an xsd:import that imports the SOAP encoding namespace, as this is a fairly common issue, you can work around it with the command line version of the tool by using the /fixImports options, i.e. run
wsdl-cl http://api.google.com/GoogleSearch.wsdl /fixImports
