Hey - this is great!
What I like most: it's *very* simple to use. It's just two lines:
   import timeoutsocket

I couldn't get it to work on my Win98-pc at home (with a modem connection to
the net),
error: "10056, 'Socket is already connected'".
But when I tried it on our Linux-server everything went just fine!

Thank you very much,
