[thelist] IIS ODBC logging

IIRC, the ODBC logging option does not store as much information as IIS
Extended Logging to a text file. I'd check to see what fields are not
supported by ODBC...

 From a performance point of view, I'd feel uneasy about the web server
logging every activity to the database, especially on a site with heavy use.

Just my £0.02...
