I just didn’t get the Seinfeld adverts, they were just to out there. But the new Microsoft adverts I like a lot.

Here’s a tip if you develop using WebDev. I recently had a timeout issue that was occurring on our live web server but not on my development box.
WebDev 12 supports remote debugging, so open your project and then make a remote debug connection. You can then debug the code and see which line is causing the issue on the server.
Is that cool or what?
