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.
