Query a List via Lists.asmx

A quick .NET function to Query a MOSS List via Lists.asmx web service. I use this function time to time, so thought to post here.
Note: I already have posted similer code in my previous post but this is the full version.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Xml;
using System.IO;

namespace ELLP_Content
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            SharePointManagement objSPManagement = new SharePointManagement();
            objSPManagement.GetListContent();
        }
    }

    public class SharePointManagement
    {
        MOSSListsService.Lists objListService = new ELLP_Content.MOSSListsService.Lists();

        public void GetListContent()
        {
            try
            {
                string strSiteURL = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["SiteURL"];
                string strUserName = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["Login"];
                string strDomain = string.Empty;
                string strPassword = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["Password"];
                string strListName = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["List"];

                #region Source URL
                //get the lists for the Source URL
                objListService.Url = strSiteURL.Trim('/') + "/_vti_bin/lists.asmx";

                //get the domain
                if (strUserName.IndexOf("\\") > 0)
                {
                    strDomain = strUserName.Split("\\".ToCharArray())[0];
                    strUserName = strUserName.Split("\\".ToCharArray())[1];
                }

                objListService.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(strUserName, strPassword, strDomain);

                #endregion


                //get the Data from the List
                System.Xml.XmlDocument xdListData = new System.Xml.XmlDocument();
                System.Xml.XmlNode xnQuery = xdListData.CreateElement("Query");
                System.Xml.XmlNode xnViewFields = xdListData.CreateElement("ViewFields");
                System.Xml.XmlNode xnQueryOptions = xdListData.CreateElement("QueryOptions");

                //*Use CAML query*/ 
                xnQuery.InnerXml = "<Where><Neq><FieldRef Name=\"Exclude_x0020_From_x0020_Country\" /><Value Type=\"Boolean\">0</Value></Neq></Where>";

                xnQueryOptions.InnerXml = "<IncludeMandatoryColumns>FALSE</IncludeMandatoryColumns><DateInUtc>TRUE</DateInUtc>";

                System.Xml.XmlNode xnListData = objListService.GetListItems(strListName, null, xnQuery, xnViewFields, null, xnQueryOptions, null);


                foreach (System.Xml.XmlNode node in xnListData)
                {
                    if (node.Name == "rs:data")
                    {
                        for (int i = 0; i < node.ChildNodes.Count; i++)
                        {
                            if (node.ChildNodes[i].Name == "z:row")
                            {
                                Console.WriteLine(node.ChildNodes[i].Attributes["ows_Title"].Value);
                            }
                        }
                    }
                }

                Console.ReadKey();
            }
            catch (System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException ex)
            {
                this.WriteLog("Message:\n" + ex.Message + "\nDetail:\n" + ex.Detail.InnerText + "\nStackTrace:\n" + ex.StackTrace);
            }
        }

        private void WriteLog(string strLine)
        {

            string FilePath = Path.Combine(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory, ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["InputLog"]);
            StreamWriter objFile;

            if (!File.Exists(FilePath))
            {
                objFile = new StreamWriter(FilePath);
            }
            else
            {
                objFile = File.AppendText(FilePath);
            }

            objFile.WriteLine(DateTime.Now + "\\t" + strLine);
            objFile.WriteLine();
            objFile.Close();

        }
    }
}
