As you probably noticed, the Sybase public newsgroups are being closed
down by March 28th, 2013. See the recent post in
sybase.public.ase.general for example (look for the title "Sybase NNTP
Forums EOL - March 28, 2013").

The forums will move to the SAP Community Network (SCN), at scn.sap.com.
In order to use SCN it is required that you register to get an SCN
account, but this is free, quick, and easy (see
http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-18437). When registered, not only can you
ask questions or start discussions in the forums but you can also create
blog posts. SCN also has a contributor reputation system where you get
points for every contribution.

The new location for the IQ forum at SCN will be at the IQ community at
http://scn.sap.com/community/sybase-iq.
To go directly to the forum, use this link:

To download the free IQ Express Edition, go to the Developer Center at
http://scn.sap.com/community/developer-center/analytic-server. Please
do not use the forum associated with this community for questions,
instead, use the communities listed above.
