      Sometimes your internet connection stops talking
      to the server's internet connection for long enough that you time out.
      Sometimes your client crashes because of a bug in code, and sometimes it
      runs out of heap space (java memory). There are of course other causes too.

      If you are running multiple clients you might simply be swamping your bandwidth and causing a timeout.

      I don't think it can be a heap space error as
      - last time i got an out of heap space error i got a message telling me it
      was exactly that
      - we already set the heapspace higher for you than the default of 64mb in
      the hidden file .hotspotrc in your client folder.

      Just in case, you could try setting the heap space limit higher still, i
      use the command line switch -Xmx200m when i startup. eg:
      java -Xmx200m -jar /home/katie/client/stendhal-0.69.jar &

      As I said, this is only a guess based on your vague description. To
      really help you we need:
      - your java version
      - your OS
      - if you are running the release client 0.70 or otherwise
      - if you use webstart or downloaded client
      - anything else which might be relevant

      Most importantly if you try running from a command prompt you should see
      any error
      messages which may be important, we need to know them. Alternatively if
      you have created the log/ directory in ~/stendhal/ or c:/documents and
      settings/username/stendhal/  then you should have log files there.
