If you do programmatic retrieval, it is usually considered good manners to insert a delay of at least 1 second between requests so as not to load the server [clueless].
Another idiot offered a link purporting to present “performance hints,” and added the inane observation that
While the execution time of a script can be significantly reduced by using faster CPUs, the invocation is disk I/O bound [idiot].
What a maroon!
Another fool said he
slept for a full 4 seconds between each station request and ran it overnight on the weekends [fool].
Clearly driven beyond the endurance of any normal man, Mr McIntyre’s response was
In retrospect, I would have put a sleep instruction – BTW how do you do that? [Auditor]
