Timeouts trying to validate my website

because repeated validation runs on it will generate a lot of expensive 
bandwidth usage) with the *link checker* (*s for emphasis, since I'm 
guessing most traffic here is about the markup validator), and I could 
not get a complete run back.  It kept timing out.  At first I was 
trying to use various browsers, and they may have had arbitrary timeout 
periods for whatever reason; but then I tried using curl at the command 
line with a very long maximum time, and it still broke the connection 
after a few minutes.  I'm guessing the connection was broken on the W3C 
side, not on my side, since I trust curl not to arbitrarily time out 
when told not to.
   I'm not a reader of this list, so please cc: responses directly to 
me.  Sorry if I'm being an idiot somehow; I did look at both of the 
FAQs, but they seemed not to talk much about the link validator, and 
searches for "timeout" and "time out" gave me nothing...
