I am getting "Your time limit has been reached" with a fairly
high probability after I enter my user name.  When I can get
in, I am seeing very long waits whenever the program has
to access the "user" database.  This is not only when the
user id and password are entered, but also when the "f"
command is entered to get to one of the file areas (since
which area was last accessed is stored in the user database)
and when the "t" (toggle) command is entered (since the
continuous mode versus stop every 24 lines mode is also
recorded in the user database).

I have sent a message about this problem to Adam Johnson
this evening.

A traceroute command gave a time of less than 1 second and
a 3 meg file of historical elements downloaded at over
100K bytes per second, so I do have high speed access at
11PM CST when I can get in.
