Php broken again

I'm pretty sure the php script has broken again. Every time I try it I get:

faultCode 105 faultString XML error: Invalid document end at line 1, column 1

Thanks for the challenge btw!

Salmon20: No, it still works for me. Try talking to the server in another way!

daMage: Don't apply the *number*, but the ... you get.

There is some module in Python's standard library that deals with your kind of files in a not- so-obvious way...

Bloody excellent level!

I love this level. I taught me how easy something is that I have been thinking about as quite hard.

Solved!

I got stuck for a while trying to use introspection in the wrong way! I was trying to check the existence of a method by omitting the () of the function all and I was getting "unknown method" errors on methods that actually exist.

Does it still work? I guess that 301 is not a phone number of the evil one, but thats what I get while trying to introspect a a phonebook.

Just checked the level again (we have moved to a new server a couple of weeks ago). It seems to be working.

Flash, are you behind some kind of proxy?

Edit: It still works for me, too. Unless I try this from the office, when I am behind a web proxy.

Hint

Just got there, and loving the challenge. Learning a lot of Python and a great deal more.

For those largely blind to "phoning" techniques (as I am), don't be suckered into thinking the lib you need has "http" in its name anywhere -- look elsewhere.

On to 14....

'sup guys. I'm new here.

Is the phonebook.php broke??

I keep getting and XML error message, is it ok?

I know that I have to acces an XML-RPC method of the phonebook to get Bert phone number, but how I know the method name?

I tried call, phone, etc, but it don't work.

How do I fix the phonebook?

HELP PLEASE!

FINNALY!

found with system.listMethods.

I was trying to check if a method existed just typing it name in python to see if it would return a <'function name' at 0xFFFFFF> but it wouldn't.
