Create a SHA1 hash of a string

This function will take a string and return the hashed value
using System.Security.Cryptography;
public static string GetSha1(string value)
{
var data = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(value);
var hashData = new SHA1Managed().ComputeHash(data);

var hash = string.Empty;

foreach (var b in hashData)
hash += b.ToString("X2");

return hash;
}

Thanks to Lars-Erik

Now working

Alright so now that this is working again, I can throw some new content up here. Over the next few days I will be putting up some code that I have found strewn about the internet, and I need somewhere to save it. So unless you can come up with a better idea I am going to be placing it here so that I can find it later. Enjoy.

PS if you do any ASP.NET or C# development you may find some of this stuff useful. Otherwise feel free to ignore it.
