"Playtime" project: Porting Didiwiki to C#.NET

I'm hoping to find time to throw at least a quick port of DidiWiki to C#.NET together.

Reference 1: Creating your own Web Server using C# - This article is from 2001, so there might be a significantly better way of doing things.

Update: This CodeGuru page looks like a more original version of the same page.

Reference 2: Didiwiki Source Code that I've saved off. Original maintainer is no longer maintaining.

Importing a runningahead log.xml into SQL Server 2005 using OPENXML

I don't currently have a work-based use for 2005, so I thought I'd use the only readily available collection of data that I have at my disposal... my running log. This is an export file from RunningAhead.com. I don't think I'm completely loading the XML data yet, and I don't have database tables to load to yet, either. However, this is my implementation of some OPENXML examples.


DECLARE @hdoc int
DECLARE @xmlDoc XML
SET @xmlDoc = (
  SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET (
    BULK 'C:projectsrunningaheadlog.1.321C02log.xml', SINGLE_CLOB
  ) AS xmlData
)
SELECT @xmlDoc

EXEC sp_xml_preparedocument @hdoc OUTPUT, @xmlDoc

SELECT * FROM
OPENXML(@hdoc, '/RunningAHEADLog/CourseCollection/Course', 2)
WITH
(
        ID varchar(32),
        Name varchar(255) ,
        Surface varchar(255),
        City varchar(255),
        State char(3),
