Removing the trailing slash from a URL in IIS6

For SEO reasons, it's sometimes considered a bad thing to have the same content on two URLs. The preferred method for fixing this is canonical URLs - however if this is not possible you can use URL rewriting to do this. If you are using IIS7 there is a URL Rewriter module, but if you're stuck with IIS6 you can use the method below.

My first 3D model using Blender.

Blender is an open source 3D modeller and it's pretty good. Maybe not as good as 3D Studio Max, but then it doesn't cost $2,000.


Orbitron is an un-original but fun game based on the old 80s game Thrust, originally available on the BBC Micro and then later Commodore 64 micro computers. The control mechanism is very similar to the Atari arcade game Asteroids (see my flash version) but with more depth to the gameplay, such was demanded by the budding generation of gamers in those days. Oh yes, we were a sophisticated bunch.
