sorry to snip your whole talk about Vanilla. While Vanilla or Wiki, whatever may be nice design to study, I think you overestimate its usefullness for Rebol. I am sorry to very strongly back-up Robert's pov, but I can bet that if free version of IOS like sync mechanism would exist, much cooler scenarios could be created - with rebol, for rebol - entire network could grow. Don't get me wrong - how is it usefull to study and deploy non rebol mechanism to document and learn what is rebol capable of? Of course web-interface is still important nowadays but when I hear talk about Vanilla to Vanilla communication and similar kind of stuff, you ppl are working agains basic idea of rebol then, no? - messaging ... I want rebol way of messaging, not some http, cgi kludges - what is new about that? For what do we want to use rebol then if not for rebol native messaging in the first place? I am far from being good coder to do it myself, but I found things like Rugby way superior to popular things like XML-RPC. What is so innovative about it? Its wide popularity? It is a pity Doc did not finish multiprotocol engine - Uniserve, - run-time pluggable multi-protocol architecture. Wouldn't it be better to communicate to irc, jabber, rebol native way of course, etc.?We have Gabriele, Doc, Romano, Maarten, Gregg cool rebol networking protocols hackers here and I wonder why our community was not able to come up with something rebol related. Do we really lack innovation? -pekr-
