ASP.NET Magic Maintenance Mode

I just recently found that you’re able to easily put your ASP.NET website int “maintenance mode”. All you need to do is add an App_Offline.htm file to you site root, and ASP.NET will serve up all requests to that file. Just rename or remove the file when you’re down with your maintenance.

Scott Gu has a couple good posts on this.
