in thread Mass downloads.

I'm not really sure how many posts I would be pulling--it is dependant upon the contents of those I pull--, but it probably be in the order of 10s of 1000s.

At the rate of 1 every 5 or more seconds, 10,000 would take 13 hours, which given the 2 hour cutoff on my dialup account is somewhat impractical. I was hoping to get authority to run at a rather faster rate at times of low system load.

If that is not permissible, I may have to abort the idea.

"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
The "good enough" maybe good enough for the now, and perfection maybe unobtainable, but that should not preclude us from striving for perfection, when time, circumstance or desire allow.
