I use sa-update to update all channels I use. From what I've seen on  
"sa-update --debug" the default is to test an dns-record.
( "dig txt" for the main channel )
If the DNS answer indicate the same version no HTTP requests are done.
So it SHOULD not hurt to call sa-update more frequently UNLESS one  
have specific scripts that directly connect to the updateservers via  

is this assumtion right?
