500 Error After AppPool Recycles

Hi there,

Thanks for a great blogging engine.  It's working out well for me apart from one issue.  I've noticed that my blog becomes unavailable, throwing a 500 error every now and then - seems to be each day.  I'm thinking that it's because the AppPools in IIS recycle every 23 hours by default.

So for example, I get to work in the morning, go to check my blog and it throws a 500 error.  I hit the F5 refresh and everything is fine, then it seems to be fine all day until tomorrow morning when the same thing happens.  This also means that when I aggregate the blog RSS on to the home page of another site, that web also site cannot show the blog data unless I hit F5.

Do you guys think it's an AppPool recycle problem? 

Thanks,
Daniel
