60 minutes is the period that was arrived at, after some debate, when it 
was first put in. I am open to changing the default, however, people 
will need to put their point of view to make it happen.

In the meantime set/var $Spots::dupage = 1800 will (for instance) set it 
to 30 mins. I would be not recommend it is set to much less, because 
some of the looping periods that we occasionally get on the network can 
be as long as 20 mins.
