While I'm definately interested in the statistical reporting,  I do have
one suggestion:

Add a random "sleep" time to the update.

Otherwise,  the reporting server is gonna get HAMMERED once a month,
assuming this project gains any kind of momentum.

A random sleep timer at the beginning of the script over (for example) a 3
hour window could make the load bearable for the checkin server.    Just
something to consider.
