Parse it fast

Take the challenge

The link above will produce a random raw XML recordset. You need to parse the RecordSet and submit back the first name and password of the person listed as the administrator. The page accepts the GET parameters "person", "password", "CFID" and "CFTOKEN". (All are required. You will need to grab your CFID and CFTOKEN from the initial response headers. Without them you will get null results.)


Parse the RecordSet and respond in 2 seconds or less. Good luck!
