I have made a little script to do this which you will find attached
to this mail (is this 'polite' in a mailing list?), it doesn't use curl

The code is very simple and may need some crafting, it is not
very fault resistant and it is not very intelligent, it will not
follow redirections and doesn't like anything but http links,
if you need that kind of things you do need curl.

To use it do something like:

$ ./timer.tcl*.html
Time: 2

Don't forget the http:// and there should be at least a '/' after that.

Hope this helps and don't hesitate to ask if it doesn't
