[REBOL] Re: ARRG...IIS/PWS - Help configuring erebol

I think that you summed things up pretty well.
Fact is that I have to touch a variety of systems, some M$-based, some not.
Apache and IIS are the two that I deal with on a regular basis. This
specific application makes use of the tight integration between IIS and M$
SQL Server 2000 -- I can query the database with an old fashioned HTTP GET
with the query embedded in an URL, and get back a XML result set ready to be
turned into HTML with some help from REBOL.
So...in this specific case, I don't have a choice on the server. And,
adding more frustration to all of this, I have configured this successfully
Configuring IIS or PWS to call REBOL for CGI processing is a piece of cake.
The fun begins when you want to configure it for REBOL Server Page duty.
Otherwise, when not using IIS, I do understand the beauty of the 'shebang'
approach. I used *nix years before my hands ever graced a Windows box.
No worries. I'm not annoyed by your suggestions. I am blinded with
annoyance that I didn't jot down the %#^%#!! syntax that worked previously.
Of course, having an image of my system disk would've helped me too, rather
than exclusively paying attention to backup policies for the data
hard-drives in the system.
