What are you talking about? Sybase doesn't need you to reconnect to
send the next statement...

Thank you, thank you. Now, a funny thing happened to me on the way
to thelist...

<tip type="Security" author="Paul Cowan">
One of the easiest security holes to leave in a Windows IIS installation
is the leave the default website, and associated sample files, installed
and publicly accessible. A good approach is to create a new, second, site
on the machine, and leave the default website permanently shut down. This
also helps because some installation programs of IIS addons etc. will
create new virtual directories in w3svc1. If that's your live site, that's
the last thing you want.
