Remove HTTP redirect entry for virtual globetrotting from app.config

description

Virtual Globetrotting updated their RSS feed to now include the Virtual Earth permalink directly in the feed. Previously, VE screensaver was using an HTTP redirect method to read the URL based on an HTTP redirect request to virtualglobetrotting. This caused a lot of traffic to virtual globetrotting and they have added the link directly to the feed. So, this is no longer required.
 
Recommend removing the following item from app.config -- VE screensaver no longer needs to check for the virtualglobetrotting HTTP redirect to get the maps.live.com permalink.
