Try the sequence_ (note the underscore) function, it should be a big win

Now thats interesting.  I can see that this function is more appropriate 
since I do not need to retrieve data from the IO monad,
but what I don't understand is why it's actually faster.  I will give it 
a try and test it on a large set to see if things change.
Thanks for the tip.
