That assumes your page requests don't use much CPU time or very many database queries each. And that you aren't creating IDs with your queries.

Note that the limit is per IP address. So if you have several systems all behind one IP address on the internet they share the limits.

Thanks Chris,

I'm currently not really dealing with the db hardly at all. I was trying to stay under 1k because I couldn't remember the numbers. Other than this script, I probably hit the db less than a dozen times a day lately. After I see how this run progresses, maybe I'll shorten the delay and run another with some positive test cases inserted. It would be nice to have this run in less than 24 hours.
