I've been playing a bit with Advogato's XML-RPC interface. MyAdvogato will use it, if it finds a suitable module available, to get the needed data for the personalized recentlog I plan to add.

It seems the methods that return lists do not work with Frontier::Client. For instance,

use Frontier::Client;
$client = Frontier::Client->new(url => 'http://www.advogato.org/XMLRPC');
$client->call('diary.getDates', 'fxn', 0);
wanted `value' or `name' tag, got `array'
at line 5 column 6
I Googled a bit that error message but founded nothing relevant, I don't know who is responsible of that. On the other hand, XMLRPC::Lite worked fine.

Colin McRae Rally 3

I am the current Rally World Champion, or so says my recently bought Colin McRae Rally 3 for the PS2 after some hours invested this weekend. Man, what a game, it's damn real. If you like driving rally cars you cannot miss this simulator and an excellent steering wheel like the Logitech Driving Force.
