Yeah, that helps.  I really just set up the cluster because I thought it
would be useful and a good learning process.  It's not critical in my 
setup.  I may fiddle with reducing the latency or at least determining 
what's causing the high latency in the early morning

When I get the message about the inconsistent, partitioned network I assume
this means that mnesia has detected that they have both run separately for 
a while and can no longer be easily merged.  Is there a process I can use 
at this point to get them back together?
