    I cannot interrupt the likes of "TYPE "http://..." with Ctrl-C.

    Could you add that capability to the wish list?

    Also,

    Code:
    v:\> timer & type "http://128.230.13.200/index.html" & timer
    Timer 1 on: 14:11:12
    TCC: (Sys) A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
     "http://128.230.13.200/index.html"
    Timer 1 off: 14:11:34  Elapsed: 0:00:21.21
    the timeout seems to be 21 seconds, an odd number, a bit long considering that I can't interrupt it, and nowhere near the timeouts of 180/180/180 seen in the OPTION dialog.

    In fact, it appears that no Option\Internet\HTTP\timeout setting greater than 21 works; such gives a 21-second timeout. Settings less than 21 work.
