While new dumps are loaded into OData it seems I am unable to query old info and the counts on the front page are wrong.

Can you change it so OData loads new dumps in the background and only when full loaded switches to them?

note all is well in odata land now, latest dump is loaded – waffles Jul 5 '10 at 6:13
@waffles: thanks! I didn't know what the problem was, so couldn't explain it. – Lazer Jul 5 '10 at 10:13
@waffles: Out of curiosity, how long does an import take? – Jon Seigel Jul 5 '10 at 15:11

I'm marking this completed cause now the whole update process is significantly faster from the users perspective, we only see a minute or 2 of downtime when loading new data dumps
