I would lto send out a few notes of thank you to some people for some wonderful code and other contributions that they have shared with the online community. I higly recommend taking a look at their blogs.
Scott Hanselman - Thank you for your IP Blocking HttpModule Code for ASP.NET as it helped me very quickly and painlessly deal with some sudden referal spam issues. I now read that you are including this in the new DasBlog code anyway which is a great idea so I'll thank you for that now as well.
Ed Courtenay - Thanks for post of yours that I stumbed accross sharing the code for your ParseDateTime function that helped me deal with one of the many different date time formats I discovered this weekend being used by various blog syndication formats.
