Just thought I would mention an issue I had with the emulator today. I was trying to make some rest calls to a well known web service and kept getting denied with a “Not Found” error in VS. Trying the url in IE gave a 404. I finally tried in Chrome and got some meaningful info back. Apparently the request was expired because the timestamp querystring value was wrong. So I checked DateTime.Now in the immediate window and sure enough it didn’t match my system time. At first I thought we arrived at the end of time, with it being the first of the year. After further reflection of the world and life as I knew it, I remembered I’m using an emulator which has its own time and it had been several days since I shut it down. This resolved the issue. I think I will start restarting the emulator more often.
