I had my first real chat on globealive (helping someone with a question). YAY!

User was searching for: what is a galaxy
** joined: guest

nentwined: howdy. :)
guest: hi
nentwined: a galaxy is a large LARGE cluster of stars and planets. how specific of an answer would you like?
nentwined: here's the first entry from dictionary.com: Any of numerous large-scale aggregates of stars, gas, and dust that constitute the universe, containing an average of 100 billion (1011) solar masses and ranging in diameter from 1,500 to 300,000 light-years. Also called nebula.
nentwined: (er, that 1011 is 10 to the 11th power)
guest: sorry i am just testing the site butas i know you are a programmer can i ask you another question
nentwined: :hehehe: cool cool. fire away :)
guest: in a shopping cart project how can i integrate the shipping
guest: chrges
nentwined: do you know how much a given thing weighs and how you plan to ship it? [I honestly don't know offhand, but I think each of the services (usps, ups, fedex) has "feeds" that you can query with your info...]
guest: i alco know that of Fedex, UPS but do you any idea about integarting them
nentwined: do you know PHP or perl?
nentwined: http://www.perl-studio.com/ups_shipping/ has demos. :)
guest: i know both but i want the integration in ASP
nentwined: hmm. asp and php are rather similar-looking. I'd expect you could piece together the asp code from the php. basically you open a socket to the UPS server and send it a query string.
guest: ok thanks!
nentwined: np :)
guest: bye
nentwined: l8r :)
guest: yea
nentwined: [just close the window to end the chat]
