Misc : My audience

Just out of interest, my audience as reported by Blogger.

Strange that Google has "Unknown Region"?

Chrome is way ahead on the browsers and Windows is way ahead on the OS.

Would have thought the iPad figure would be higher but maybe iPad users have no interest in Identity :-)


C# : Invalid URI

The full message is:

"Invalid URI : The hostname could not be parsed".

I get this using the URIBuilder class.

Since it was complaining about the hostname I checked the DNS, I checked that I could ping it, I tried the IP address etc. etc.

Eventually worked out that it was because the password contained special characters.

You are apparently supposed to URL encode them.

Just changed the password to use letters and numbers and all was well.

Somewhat misleading error message :-)
