> Matthew Goldstein (austein on IRC) figured out why trying to use the startOSCARSession method was failing with a signature error when tried to use over SSL (which would work around the server complaining that we try to set useTLS=1 over http).  In short, the signature needs to use the URL "https://api.oscar.aol.com:80/...", while still connecting to port 443.
> I wasn't comfortable committing this because I'm concerned that it would just break again if the servers are fixed to use the correct URL in the signature generation (or rather, no port at all, as the online docs indicate).
> Nevertheless, Matthew, thanks for figuring this out!
