Is there any way to change the timeout duration?

Hi;
Thanks for the great help and support. I am using yahoo pipes to enhance some of my feeds in autoblog. In many cases I get the message below
WP HTTP Error: Operation timed out after 10000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received
Is there anyway to address this as when I am in yahoo pipes I see the feed working perfectly but when I am back to my dashboard I see the message above and interrupted import. Is there anyway to address this?
Regards
Bobby
