When my browser presents me with a message: "Alert!
This operation timed out when attempting to contact

What does this generally refer to?

I am supposing that it means my internet connection
has disconnected. Usually during a disconnect, an
orange MSN tab at bottom of browser chrome starts
flashing. But not always.

I'm on MSN dial-up and considering a change. Today,
I've been disconnected about 8 times, and it's 4 times
within one minute, then time passes, then another 4
times within two minutes. Strange. 

Server overload due to people shopping or surfing the
information superhighway?
