Turning on HTTP GET with ASP.NET Web Services under Visual Studio 2003 and .NET 1.1 (Everett)

In Visual Studio 2003/Windows .NET Framework 1.1 (Codename: Everett) when using ASP.NET XML Web services, note that HTTP GET is turned off by default, presumably for security reasons.

Here's how to turn it back on...add this to your web.config:

<webServices>
   <protocols>
      <add name="HttpGet" />
   </protocols>
</webServices>

ieHTTPheaders gets even MORE useful

One of my favorite tools certainly high on my list of things I use all the time is Jonas Blunck's ieHTTPheaders.  It's a fantastically elegant solution to an irritating problem...I want to see the HTTP headers, but I don't feel like using a sniffer...can't this be integrated in with IE? Well, it is.

But, it's never supported HTTPS before, which put me in a bad spot since EVERYTHING we do in the banking industry uses HTTPS.  So, now ieHTTPheaders supports SSL.  Fabulous.

This is just too stupid for words...The largest Chee-to in the world

"This giant Chee-to could be a boon to our local economy," said Tom Straub, owner of Algona's Sister Sarah's Bar. "Anything we can do to attract visitors to our town would be good." [CNN]

For a second there, I thought I was reading The Onion.  Personally, I'm more of a Frito guy.

Just exactly HOW powerful is Google? Just WHAT can you find?

A lot of people comment on the top of the my wife and my Wedding Cake.   It has myself (wire-rim glasses, goatee, traditional Scotish Kilt and Sporin) and my wife (with Traditional African Kente Cloth designs and a matching flower arrangement.)

They say, "How ever did you find a cake topper like that?" and I say "I googled for 'Scottish Interracial Cake Topper' and well, the rest is history."  What kills me is, they usually assume I'm kidding.
