Also, there are some issues that I ran into while working on my first service. I had originally planned to expose a WCF endpoint through WS-HTTP, however, I can into an unpleasant exception when I tried to do so: AddressAccessDeniedException. Apparently, the cause of this is the fact that http bindings are reserved for processes run as administrators. Fool me once, shame on me. In light of that fact, I'm switching over to using net.tcp for my local Windows Service-hosted WCF service. I'll post more here as I learn it.
