Top 7 anime couples who really should kiss already

(Warning! This article may contain spoilers)


Take a very nice Anime. Take a great lead character. Take a virtually perfect partner. They patently like each other and would make such a great couple!
Episode after episode, they get closer and closer and you start thinking they are going to kiss and confess any time now. Yet, nothing actually happens. The two of them go on staring into each other’s eyes, casually touching and basically almost-kissing but do not satisfy your urge to see them together as a couple. Not now. Not yet. Anime authors seem to enjoy keep us hanging around over and over.

Eventually the audience start feeling like this:

Error 405 – Methods not Allowed in ASP.NET Core PUT and DELETE requests

A reader of my recent ASP.NET Core and Angular 2 book wrote me about a strange error occurred while publishing the OpenGameList Single-Page Application into production upon a Windows Server + IIS powered environment machine.

The published SPA seemed to be working OK at first, but when he logged in as Admin to update an item the command kept failing with the following message:

Error 405 – Methods not Allowed

I did my best to help him to troubleshoot the issue: after a few tests we found out that such error was coming out in response to any attempted PUT and DELETE request, while GET and POST methods were working fine.

Such weird discovery led me to dig through the web looking for a suitable explanation, until I eventually found the cause: it seems like the culprit is the WebDAVModule, which seems to set PUT and DELETE request methods disabled by default. In order to get them to work, we either need to change these defaults or disable it for the whole web application, which was what we did.

Here’s what we put in the web.config file to remove it for good:

Despite the rather easy workaround, such an issue is definitely a though one, as it will easily affect most ASP.NET Core Web API and Web Applications when they get deployed on a live environment: that’s because the WebDAV module, although not supported by IIS Express, happens to be enabled in most production servers. I guess that a lot of users will stumble upon it sooner or later… I definitely hope that this post will help some of them to overcome the hassle.



ASP.NET Core and Angular 2 first sales data: Big in Japan! (and UK)

3 days after the official release on the eBook stores, the ASP.NET Core and Angular 2 book quickly ranked its way through the Top 10 charts of e best sellers in the two target categories Web Services and C#.

The response in Japan was nothing less than breathtaking, as the book ranked up until it reached the number one position for both of them!



ASP.NET Core and Angular 2 – The Book

My ASP.NET Core and Angular 2 book is finally out! The publisher did an awesome job, as it’s already available through a number of major online e-book market stores such as,, iTunes, Kobo as well as on the Packt website.

UPDATE: First sales data: #1 in Japan, #3 in UK, Best Seller in Germany and France!

The whole experience was a blast, since I got the chance to work side by side with a number of IT professionals who helped me reviewing and finalizing this 470-page monster, debugging more than 5.000 lines of source code samples (everything is also available on GitHub) and publishing the sample SPA on the website.

In the following day I will release here some significative highlights/content snippets of the book contents, to give the readers the chance to evaluate the product before spending their money to get it. For the time being, here’s a quick overview of what the book is about: I hope it will help many ASP.NET developers to make the shift from ASP.NET 4 to ASP.NET Core and also from AngularJS to the brand-new Angular 2 framework. Happy reading!
