This method uses crontab to execute a shell script that downloads an updated urchin.js file every 24 hours and saves it into your local sites directory so that it can be served by your web server instead of the google-analytics.com web server. The problem with google-analytics.com is that when google-analytics.com/urchin.js is requested by billions of web users all over the world at one time, it can cause your pages to load very slowly, especially if you are using WordPress or a similar CMS.
