Default Garbage Collector -- Is it working?

Hey ppl, I am trying the following code to see what is the effect of GC.Collect on the code. As per

http://www.andymcm.com/dotnetfaq.htm#5.9

if GC.Collect is called, finalizer should be called for the object ob1. If GC.COllect is commented ...its unpredictable.

But for me this doesnt seems to be working. Any ideas?

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

public partial class GarbageCollectionDemo : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        clsTempObject ob1 = new clsTempObject();
        ob1.Use();
    }
}

internal class clsTempObject
{
    //int[] arr = new int[1];
    int arr;
    bool finalizerFlag;

    internal void Use()
    {
        arr = 10;
        finalizerFlag = false;
        //arr[0] = 10;
        staticUse(arr);
    }

    internal static void staticUse(int arr)
    {
        GC.Collect();
        ++arr;
    }

    ~clsTempObject()
    {
        finalizerFlag = true;
        arr = 99;
    }
}
