In this case, Alex, I don't think there will be a noticeable  
difference. Although "load" can make simultaneous requests, requests  
to the same domain are queued, and are sent in turn after the previous  
request returns. As "get" will also re-use open connections, I think  
the result will be pretty much the same.

I like the idea of running a script on the server. (I'm behind a  
fairly slow DSL connection.)
