I can understand where they’re coming from I think.

I browse HN or reddit a lot when I put something in motion that will take 4-30 seconds to complete. Because who can wait tens of seconds for something.

Then 15 minutes later...

But if I know that I’ll probably have to wait just as long for the site to load then perhaps I’d just sit and endure, maybe...

Lately I've simply been keeping the slow activity visible on screen, it's been enough that the flicker of motion when it finishes can pull me away from the distractions.
