Mike's not talking about webserver load, but the nightly
stats update load. The master key server needs to do one
'calculation' (whatever) for each package. In your case
it's 1 block per package. In my case it's 32 blocks per
package. So the load of the server you produce is 32 times
higher than the load I produce, regarding the same amount
of blocks. That's a reason why the stats take up to 12:00
CEST (11:00 GMT) until they are finished.
