hi everyone, this is my first post

i'm trying to develop flash lite client for wordpress blog, i've tried  
using xmlrpcflash by mattism @ sf.net but when put into mobile it  
gives out of memory error.

so i'm trying to re-write at first the metaWeblog.getRecentPosts but  
unsuccessful, hope i can get a solution. i haven't done programming  
for 8 years so i'm in beginner mode.

the xml is created as xml rpc spec but i got no XML response back. any  
idea why?

this is the trace output in flash (username and password replaced):

this is xmlcallstring:  
FTPS033: A Call to loadVariables(http://santosohome.com/xmlrpc.php)  
found, limitations might apply.

		ChildNode = xmlCall.createElement("param");
		var Node:XMLNode = xmlCall.createElement("value");
		var NodeType:XMLNode = xmlCall.createElement(args[i][1]);
	var xmlCallString:String = xmlCall.toString();
	trace("this is xmlcallstring: " + xmlCallString);
	var x:XML = new XML();
	x.ignoreWhite = true;
	x.xmlDecl = '<?xml version="1.0"?>';
	x.contentType = "text/xml";
	x.parseXML( xmlCallString );
	x.sendAndLoad(SERVICE_URL, xmlResponse);


xmlResponse.onLoad = function () {

	trace("this is onLoad");
	trace("loaded: " + xmlResponse.loaded);
	trace("status: " + xmlResponse.status);
	trace("this is the respond : " + xmlResponse);

xmlResponse.onData = function () {
	myText.text = xmlResponse.toString();
