I think you missed his first point--it depends on what hardware you have,
notably RAM. Indexing a lot with an old processor and 64MB of RAM is
naturally going to take a while. (BTW, things scale more on the number of
URLs, not really the amount of data.)

Remember if you're hitting the network it also depends a lot on your
bandwidth, network congestion, etc.
