75 second timeout error.

* I wrote this script because it's a real pain in the ass to generate the

Ah... I see.


I recommend you look into cURL for that, so that you can automate the login process and not have to rely on STDIN. Either get the login info from a form, which runs the above code after submitting, or define them in the top of the script. Either way will work just fine, depending upon whether you need only one or many users to auth.


PS: You'll want to use [php][/php] tags around your code, as it makes it a whole lot easier to read. Remember to use the square brackets. ;)
