DaveNet: An end to the Uber-Operating System.
XML-RPC.COM: Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP).
A personal apology to UserLand customers who received a confusing renewal notice yesterday.
A plug for My.UserLand.Com. The new version that allows channel exclusion makes it a billion percent more valuable. Now I really feel like I have my own personal news agent.

Microsoft: "SOAP provides an open, extensible way for applications to communicate using XML-based messages over the Web, regardless of what operating system, object model or language particular applications may use. SOAP facilitates universal communication by defining a simple, extensible message format in standard XML and thereby providing a way to send that XML message over HTTP. Microsoft is soliciting industry feedback on version 0.9 of the SOAP specification."

SOAP also is an acronym for The Society For Obstetric Anesthesia & Perinatology.
Martin Haeberli: "You may remember that SOAP stood for (in the late 1950's) 'Symbolic Optimizing Assembler Program' - for the IBM 650 (whose main memory was a spinning drum!)."
