I think you're right.  Thanks for the response; I was probably on 
the wrong track, sort of.  I've done some analysis, and I now see 
that most access to my web sites is being done by robots -- and 
they're hitting many rather large scanned files I have posted on 
my site.  I'll try telling them not to with a robots.txt file, 
and see if that helps.

Thanks again!
