Testing the program I wrote at work indicates that it is making a valid secure (https) connection, receiving cookies and everything else that it’s supposed to do. However, there is no data in the XML document it is supposed to receive. This could mean there is no data to send, which is probably the case. I will check that out today.
I may stop gathering in silly signs when I hit 1000. That would be a good place to start recycling them. Today’s sign is number 768, so we have a ways to go yet before I make that decision. I have signs saved up into the 800′s and gather more on a weekly basis, but that is time that could be spent on other stuff that needs to be done around here. Same old complaint, same old solution.
