Previous request not completed

Thanks Charles. I forgot about using TSNet by itself, mostly because the various commands are 
beyond my skill level. You actually have to know what you're doing for that.

In the process of revising my scripts, the duplicate requests that were causing the problem 
seem to have disappeared. I settled for a short wait regardless. So far, so good.

The "non-pro" version of tsNet acts the same as libURL by only allowing one synchronous request at a time (the pro version of tsNet allows multiple synchronous requests at the same time).

The "load URL" command only support HTTP GET requests which means that if you need to use other types of requests (e.g. POST) then use the tsNet functions directly.

You will still experience the "previous request not completed" if you try to make two synchronous requests against the same server at the same time regardless of this setting.
