What about a 30 second wait instead? Or is that too costly on bandwidth?
It's a bandwidth thing afaik.

IIRC about a year or so ago, we had some regular dbase crashes and slow-downs, I think the server load was probably going through the roof. Since the implementation of the 60 second rule, it has been smooth as silk.
