Correct, and I as a developer can't realy do anything about it.

This is how I'm running the client right now and it works cause I'm och a
T1 connection. But I got some computers thats on a modem and it is simply
to mutch hassard to have the modem to call our ISP every 10-30 minute. It
cost to mutch and it will interfear with the "real" work to often.
