Wouw you are right Jim !

But a lot of webmasters act very irresponsible when it comes to database driven websites. If you know the ::$DATA - trick then you will be surprised how many asp sites on NT that have not upgraded their server making the server side coding all visable ! That can sometimes even reveal passwords! A paradise for hackers...

Best,
Mikkel
