I just returned an hour ago from the movies, watching Minority Report. I found the movie pretty interesting, and fun to watch :)

Ignored Parameters (2)

Sam replies: "Clearly, .NET (or is it SOAP itself?) has cemented association between XML and interface is too strongly.". Humm... I hadn't looked at it from that perspective.
