You should always program your software with the assumption that a 
network connection could fail at any point. The ability to try and 
re-establish the connection should be a standard feature in your 
applications.  Programming database apps with tiOPF makes that pretty 
easy. Saying that, using Delphi/Lazarus RAD style development with 
DB-controls should also be able to allow that - I think.
