I need more detail on this - what happens when you try to open the labs?

Great labs. They helped out a lot. Lab 4 however has some things that don't match up. The tests are expecting a WebProtocolException but only CohoWebException ever gets thrown. I looked at the code to see what was going on considering that it may have been my machine messing things up. Turns out the only exception ever thrown is the CohoWebException so I found and replaced all occurances of WebProtocolException with CohoWebException. With this change anywhere webx.StatusCode appeared StatusCode needed to be changed to Status (i.e. webx.Status) After that smooth sailing. Thanks for the introduction to REST.

@RonJacobs in Preview 2, is there a place to edit ItemInfo's data contract? In the first preview it was in the base class for the service.
