I don't think it's that the internet connection goes down -- I have a 
router which is supposed to keep my connection "up" all the time. I won't 
swear it's up 100% of the time, but I know I can leave home for work and 
after driving an hour and spending time on other things, I can connect back 
to my Fedora 11 box at home over SSH and access it with no problems. So, if 
my internet connection goes down it takes longer than about 90 minutes. Not 
to mention, during the week, I never shut down my SSH tunnel back to my 
Linux box, so the connection is always "up."

So, long story short, my problem does not seem to be related to the 
internet connection.  My check there *was* set to check every 30 minutes. 
I've dropped it down to every 5. Maybe that'll be enough. Thanks, Anne.
