timeout & retry setting

It would be fantastic if these two settings could be controlled on a project level. I just created a new project where I need extreme long timeouts (over 5 minutes) to save results from a database query and it would be nice if I could only set this long timeout for this one project (that will run about 40 times every day) without changing the global setting all the time, since long timeouts are of course counter productive for a lot of download projects.

I added the Timeout= parameter, but Retries will be harder to implement.

Thx a lot. By the way I am already making excessive use of the delay command you implemted, it works great on those sites, where I need to emulate some human behaviour to not get blocked or kicked all the time when trying to retrive data.

I am glad that it is helpful!

Yes, it is very much. Before I had to run multiple instances of OE for the different projects and now I can just run one instance and handle all settings in there. That`s much more better to control.

OK. If you need the updated version with the timeout, let me know.

That would be nice.
