Its only DOSing at 3am every morning when 100 people run filldatabase, 
a time when no one really cares if it takes 36 mins. Not only is it 
rude, but things like this is what makes yahoo/ninemsn change there 
guide so we cant get information from it any more.

Some thing good I notices today is a xml feed from abc of the guide 

We should be using this instead of nine for abc at least.
