Is there a FAQ anywhere that deals with the details of a reflector log?

Is there a way (by variable???) to extend the hold time on a connect to =
fool the reflector to re-hook to sites if there is a temporary droppage =
in service?

With a PC there was an evil trick of pumping the output of the sender up =
so that it flooded routers (just a little). This saw PC's reconnecting =
to reflectors after short interruptions because the late packets were =
still coming. =20

Here's a log entry for last night that saw all my 7 remote sites =
dropping off within a few minutes. Any suggestions?

I've left out the boring parts (if that's possible).
