I've noticed that mine is trying to run during primetime as well.  This used
to not be the case as of maybe a week ago.  Mfdb would reschedule to run 24
hours after I ran it and always at 6:30-ish in the morning.  Now it's trying
to run at 5:30 PM tomorrow.

Is schedulesdirect responsible?  Maybe they're implementing some load
distribution and not considering that we don't want to update our db's
during primetime...  If they are, I suggest the ticket requesting they don't
"suggest" we run during primetime.

I'm running on a P3 550 MHz Slot 1.  Needless to say, every database access
is noticable, and a mfdb is insane.
