I stumbled across the Dynamic LINQ Library today and can't figure out why more people aren't talking about it.

I recently set up an Instagram feed for a travel blog and found that the Instagram API only supplies the UTC created date/time of each image, and doesn't supply the user's UTC Offset (as the Twitter API does), so the only thing you have to work with are the latitude and longitude (lat/long) coordinates to find out the timezone and UTC Offset of where the image was posted.

This is an extension method for creating a checkbox list for a list of enum values (IList<Enum>).
It's a modified version of the CheckboxListForEnum extension method I found on the Xango project. Their version creates a checkbox list for a property that contains a single enum value.

Redirecting multiple domains to one and http to https is a pretty common requirement, and the are plenty of examples online showing how to do this using the IIS URL Rewrite Module.
Most of the examples I've seen work fine, but use separate rules for redirecting each domain and for redirecting http to https, resulting in something like this:
