Thanks for the help.  The error handling worked to a certain extent
but after a while the server does seem to stop responding to my

I have a list of about 7,000 links to pages I want to parse the HTML
of (it's basically a web crawler) but after a certain number of
urlretrieve() or urlopen() calls the server just stops responding.
Anyone know of a way to get around this?  I don't own the server so I
can't make any modifications on that side.
