When I'm 64

Was working on something interesting today - transfering images from a URL (technically a URI) via XML.

Wasn't all that hard once I got an idea of how it's done. Essentially, it involves creating a stream to consume the image via WebTransfer and then converting the stream to a Base64 object which can be serialized as one big blob of text.

Once I have all the error-trapping and kinks worked out, code samples will be posted.
