This week, Darien Graham-Smith reports from the Infosec conference, where figures as diverse as David Blunkett and Eugene Kaspersky have been calling for tougher security legislation. Dave Stevenson shows off a novel little data-sharing device and, just for a change, we all look forward to Windows 7.
Have the Pirate Bay boys been hard done by? The team argues over it this week. Plus we cover the BBC iPlayer revamp, commiserate with AMD over its recent performance and ponder the implication of a 3D web, courtesy of Google. Plus, one of the best-built smartphone we’ve ever seen.
This week the team sets its sights on Amazon’s peculiar removel of certain books from its lists; wonders what eBay was doing when it bought Skype; argues over the pronunication of ‘OS’ and looks at quite possibly the largest and most unusual laptop ever produced.
I’m now using Windows Server 2008 (though this issue occurs in Windows Vista and Windows 7 too and thus have IIs 7) and I’ve got many older websites and systems that were written in ASP that I need to update, and the problem was that all I get is a lovely 500 error message on the browser, and no details on how to change it to the way IIs 6 was, and send the error to the browser (local or remote). So after a bit of digging and testing all manner of other instructions that didnt seem to work using the IIs 7 UI, I finally found something that works!
Here is the solution:
On the server (or machine running IIs 7) open a command window (Start, Run, cmd) – you might need Administrative priviliges if on a domain controlled network
Type CD/ (and then press Enter)
Type CD Windows (Or whatever the folder name is for your windows installation) (and then press Enter)
Type CD System32 (and then press Enter)
Type CD Inetsrv (and then press Enter)
Type appcmd set config -section:asp -scriptErrorSentToBrowser:true (and then press Enter)
Type appcmd set config -section:system.webServer/httpErrors -errorMode:Detailed (and then Press Enter)
Close the command window – sorted!
You will now find that errors are sent to the browser on remote machines as well as the local browser on the server / IIs 7 machine.

On this week’s show we discuss whether discounts on broadband connections would make Phorm’s behavioural advertising service any more palletable. Plus, Twitter in the classroom, Google vs the newspaper world, and Yahoo’s bid to become the new Facebook.
This week we discuss the strange case of the virus meltdown that never was; mourn the passing of Encarta and Wikia Search; debate the philosophical finer points of Chinese music downloads; and decide if Intel has a hit on its hands with its latest server processor.
