What makes it hard? - [9:05 AM]

Scripting News: "Scanning Greg Reinacker's latest roadmap for NewsGator, they support SOAP and REST, which I know from lots of experience means I have to work real hard just to try their stuff out. Too hard." - Dave, why not share what makes it so hard to do? Is this some technical problems, is it lack of support somewhere, what in particular makes it hard? Is it by chance lack of support for SOAP and REST in your tool of choice? E.G. C#/.NET framework make doing SOAP pretty much a slam dunk and there's ton's of support out there for other platforms/languages. A quick Google for SOAP and many different languages seems to turn up lots of support. If you have time, please, share the problem and I'm sure the web will respond with solutions, maybe the NewsGator folks could help?

Swell - [10:14 AM]

CNN: "Flooding from a weekend of heavy rain shut down the Justice Department building, Internal Revenue Service headquarters and the National Archives on Monday, and created a nightmare for commuters with washed-out roads, mud blocking the Capital Beltway and delays on the area's rail lines." - I've always wanted to visit Washington D.C. Ever since my grandma brought me back a gyroscope from the Smithsonian I've wanted to go. The monuments, the National Archives, a tour of the White House, the Smithsonian, and Mt. Vernon to name a few.

We leave Wednesday morning to visit family in Virginia, and get a taste of D.C. My hope of hopes is most of these things are open while we're there.
