It's not your PC, it's the server. Although I am running Lottery Post on a dedicated server, it's not enough at this point. I am currently preparing a massive technology upgrade that will add tons of power to the database engine. That will fix problems like that timeout.
I just finished building four new servers that will form the basis of the new setup. The database server itself is way-out cool, with a 9-disk RAID array, and one hot-spare. (15,000 RPM Ultra SCSI drives!) The server also has 8 GB of RAM, so the entire database could theoretically fit into RAM at this point.
I'm documenting things along the way, so one day I'll publish the upgrade in a nice article.
