... until the collector arrives ...

This "blog" is really just a scratchpad of mine. There is not much of general interest here. Most of the content is scribbled down "live" as I discover things I want to remember. I rarely go back to correct mistakes in older entries. You have been warned :)



Here is a gotcha:  if you attempt to protect the contents of a directory using a web.config file like:

<location path="data">
        <deny users="*"/>

... it won't work. ASP.NET only respects the configured permissions for files that it serves. Static directories, and most files in them, are served by IIS and must be protected using IIS settings.
