Preheat to 350. Heat water in a medium-sized saucepan until boiling. Add oats & stir. Cover, remove from heat, let stand for 20 minutes. Melt chips over hot (but not boiling) water in a double boiler. Stir & set aside. In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt, set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter, brown & granulated sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time. Blend in oats & melted chocolate. Add flour mixture, blending just until mixed. Pour batter into greased & floured 13x9x1 1/2" pan. Bake 35-40 minutes. Remove cake from oven. Let stand 5-10 minutes, turn out cake onto a flat surface or serving tray. Cool completely, frost top & sides. Eat. Be happy.
