I was fooling with it a bit myself, I have another idea on how to
avoid the wait.

First I tried as someone here suggested, cycle through
X-Forwarded-For: headers. DC still wouldn't give me a new ID faster
then 10-15 seconds though.

Now, I'd like to see if using differant DC ad servers (they have
many, on scattered subnets) will each give you one cookie per 15
seconds. Theres probably around 15, so that cuts our sleep to 1
seconds.

So, adhost needs to be changed from 'ad.dc.net' to the individual IP
addresses. Unfortunatly, I don't know python, and its syntax is
unique enough to prevent me from picking it up. So if someone wants
to add this little feature, here are few servers to start with:
204.253.104.45, 204.253.104.95, 204.253.104.110, 204.253.104.140, 
207.46.138.11, 208.184.29.150, 209.67.38.102, 209.67.38.103
