As suggested in my comment, the
String url_select = "http://server1.chris.waszczuk/webservice/select.php"; is wrong. Basically, unless you have an own DNS server and all your traffic goes through it,
server1.chris.waszczuk is a bad DNS name.
If you're running this within a local network, I'd suggest using your server's private IP address. This way you'll have your URL with something like this:
If you're running it as a remote server, use the valid DNS instead.
