I'll confirm that. I recently wrote a script that had to process a lot
of data, and I added a progress bar as a matter of course. The script
took 6 seconds to complete. That felt like quite a long time, so I
started adjusting the progress update to only change every so many
cycles. The longer between updates, the faster the script ran. Then I
had an epiphany and removed the progress bar altogether -- and the same
data got processed in about a dozen milliseconds. The entire lag was the
Rev is so fast, sometimes you forget.
