The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

That has been discussed as part of this question I'm having trouble connecting to a SQL Anywhere server. How can I fix this? - but I'm sure it deserves its own question.

Wise users like Breck tend to relate to a "Watcom Rule": "Watcom Does Things The Way They Should Be Done."

Why is this cited here, and what does it mean?

(And now Breck should share his wisdom again...)

OK, Breck has already written on that topic a few times, cf. his blog article:
