Speeding up get URL

I'm not sure there is much you can do to speed up the fetching of  
URLs, but my two suggestions would be:

1) See if you can process more than one download at a time - this will  
be more complex to code, but may be a bit faster so that 1 slow  
download doesn't affect another. Of course it will still scale just as  

2) Assuming there isn't much you can do to download the pages faster,  
perhaps you could look into having the script run on a schedule at odd  
hours when you are not in front of the computer. For example, if it  
ran incrementally downloading pages for an hour every night at 2AM you  
might not notice all of the time going in to it.

Hope that helps a little.
