in thread multi threading DBI

Let's see what the OP says for sure, but given "scrape a sports news site and then enter details into sqlite", but:

  1. fetching pages across the internet;
  2. parsing html to extract data;
  3. loading the extracts into a DB;

Which bit(s) are likely to be the bottleneck? Which bit(s) are likely to be helped by multi-threading?

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
