after some coding and messing around, I have decided to share my findings with you, the great people who read my blog. all 6 or so of you. anyway, the address of the webservice is if you own the server, like me, and don’t have the directory hooked up, you done need the yourdiectory part. to post stuff, you use the InsertCategoryPost or SimplePost method. each take a username, password, datetime, title and body as parameters, but the category one takes an array of categories, which are strings. there is a get categories method which returns an array of strings. I am posting this on my pocket pc with a little app I built using this knowledge. go forth and make new posting apps for dotTEXT my readers!
