Re: Cancel threads after timeout
It sounds like your real problem is with your SQL query... Is that part of
this problem under your control? Can you break the query into smaller,
quicker, pieces that you can run in a reasonable amount of time?

If not, nesting threads might be your best programmatic solution. Heed
Jason's warning though that the SQL Server my still be working even if you
cancel an operation from the outside (which could compound your problem).
