And remember that if your import times out before pulling in all the 
data, just run the import again. It will skip over the posts and such 
that were imported previously. You should be able to keep re-running the 
import until it finally reaches the end and gives you the 'all done' notice.

A *better* solution would be to up the execution timeout in your php 
config, but if you can't do that for some reason, there's the moderately 
clumsy fallback of continuing the import. :)
