sberryman, Jan,

Thanks for the help, guys.  I did try this as I've used this
work-around before and I *thought* it wasn't working as well.  But I
just had another try and it worked fine.

Now, is there a safe way to implement this work-around?  I'm not much
of a security wonk, so what can I check in the cert to accept only
Google's?  I see properties like Issuer, Thumbprint, and
GetRawCertData.  Can I use any of these to verify, or at least do
slightly more than "return true" for all certs?
