Dean, what OS are you on? I'm due to try a from-scratch install on a
VM, and I've got a MacBook laying around that needs action2, so I'll
try those installs in the next couple of days. Hopefully it's
something easy to fix when I've reproduced it.

Very cool. I'm working on a Twitter client, and it hasn't even needed
to dip into action servers yet. The main action use I can see for you
would be as a built-in proxy for fetching RSS feeds.

The Twitter client is up on my public couch now. I haven't tried it on
anything but a Mac with firefox/firebug or Safari. It seems to work.
Please let me know if it works for you!

(I don't store passwords, or even see them - the browser just basic
auth's with Twitter's JSONP api.) There's a cosmetic problem when
posting status updates, where Twitter's response gets downloaded
instead of silently hitting the iframe... I sure hope I can solve that
while still maintaining the direct user-twitter connection.

Glad you like it!
