There is a bug in the IIS7 Web Dav Module shown below
The bug is that if you have a file or folder with an ampersand “&” character it will cause an error when using Windows Explorer. We installed this on a Windows 2008 Server 32 bit version at work and opened it up to users.
When a user browsed a folder with a file or child folder that contained an ampersand they received the following message
The fix is to either install WebDav 7.5 for IIS 7.0 or to install a hotfix. This hotfix rollup resolves the following issues that occur when you use the WebDAV module for IIS 7.0:
A hotfix rollup is available for the out-of-band WebDAV module for IIS 7.0
WebDav 7.5 for IIS 7.0 Module : 32Bit Version
WebDav 7.5 for IIS 7.0 Module : 64Bit Version

I see that there is now offical talk of a Code Camp in Christchurch, New Zealand in November 2007 which is good to see. I hope for some confirmed dates soon.
This is great news as the Mainland as we call it (the South Island of New Zealand) has never had a Code Camp before.
For pre-registrations and more details see http://dot.net.nz/Default.aspx?tabid=108
The theme of the code camp is Next generation, back to basics.
New releases of C#, VB, .Net, ASP and SQL are iminent. This code camp will focus on getting up to speed with all of this, plus cover migration stratigies and many non-technology specific topics such as Architecture and Development Life Cycle. Hopefully something for everyone - noobs, gurus, youg and old.
I have been asked to speak on IIS 7 and will be providing a session on this somewhere over the two day event.
I also spoke to Daniel Wissa ( at TechEd 2007) who runs the Christchurch .NET user group with Peter Jones [MVP] about running a shared session some time this year on Windows Vista Gadget Development. The code camp may be a good time for this session as well.
I am trying to get some sponser support as well - but I will keep it quiet until I know the result.
While working on IIS 7 this morning I got the following error while trying to save some configuration settings to my Default Web Site
Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
The error message displayed was not that friendly but I got a general idea - unable to save my changes!
There are a couple of clues :
Apon checking the web.config file I noticed that the Read Only attribute was set, and this was causing the issue above, maybe the UI should check if the web.config file is marked as read only and warn the user - I will suggest this to the IIS product team.
