Programming pingbacks

I'm using a CMS system of my own development, and sadly, I never got around to programming pingbacks into it. I've been searching for a solution for this now and again for a year's time, and it seems I've stumbled on two very elegant code snippets that I think will work for me.

First, there's Richard Hirner's solution to receiving pingbacks using the XMLRPC library, which I think I'll be able to modify to work with my current webhost. Second, there's the PHP Pingback sender, written by Allan Wirth, based on Pingor. Using them as a staring point, I'm hoping to piece together a complete solution for my own CMS within a few days. I'll keep you posted about the results. :-)
