set cursor to busy admin at

Setting the cursor to busy eats cycles and adds a time-overhead.

Personal preference is to simply 'set the cursor to watch' for any actity
lasting up to a few seconds, or a progress bar updated every nth iteration
(such as n mod 100 =0) for longer routines. For indeterminate activity
length, I use an animated gif such as a barber's pole.

Short answer is I haven't used 'busy' in a long time.
