"Can't read stream because the TCP connection..."

I use the Radio outliner to write my Manila blog. Lately when I save, 
it usually unfailingly times out (I assume that's what happens) and 
gives me an error message that says "Can't read stream because the 
TCP connection was closed unexpectedly." Every change you see on my 
blog right now is the result of about about 10 attempted saves. Very 

Maybe this will help the diagnosis...

Right now the Status Message in my About Radio Userland window is 
saying "Radio UserLand 8.0.3: 20.0MB free, 12:02:08AM; 3 threads; 8 
hits." Now I'll try to save a change: making the new date/title 
"Monday, July 8, 2002." Okay, now I'll try to save that change. The 
Status Message says "Saving 'The Doc Searls Weblog: Monday, July 8, 
2002'..." After about 30 seconds I get the "Can't read stream..." 
error message. I say Okay to the message and the outline is still 
titled Sunday, July 7, 2002. I repeat the same effort several more 
times... it finally works.

I have the feeling the problem is at this end, but have no idea how 
to solve it. Any help is welcome.
