I have a machine that waits for short/long periods of time, and some data that I am writing to the server is being ignored during the transfer. If the machine waits for more than 10 minutes, roughly, I noticed 2 global variables aren't getting reported. The delimiters before and after the variables that aren't making are there. But where the data should be for those 2 variables, there is nothing there, no space or anything. Ideas? Would it help to #define those??? or would it get dumped that way too. One of the variables could be zero, but I know one of them is definately a value. One is a char and the other is a long.
