Distracting Users During Load Load Times

I've got the following problem:
we're trying to incorporate bulk actions to a list and the server needs time to process mulitple requests, which result in a long loading time (around 10s-20s).

Been looking for a list on what techniques we can do to distract users from feeling the loading time being slow. Were currently implementing an loading bar ajax loading on loop would you guys know any other way thats more satisfying than this?

A hybrid prototype — the holy grail of wireframing

After reading through Zaki Warfel's Prototyping, I hoped it would shed light on the most effective techniques. It was a very good read and included some invaluable insights on progressively iterating from paper models to high fidelity designs. It's led me to make some assertions about prototyping tools...

The Perpetual Scrolling Web Pages

I've been noticing more and more Ajax powered pages where at the end
of the normal page end a call is made to fetch more content and is
added to the bottom of the page, in essence making the page longer on
the fly. A good example of this is on http://www.haystack.com
Twitter and Facebook do something similar but a button or link is
needed to expand the content.

I can a usability issue with clicking on a link and then having the
back button not return you to the same 'long' page you left from.

Methods for Documenting RIAs

Greetings (my first post)!

As we continue to adopt asynchronous models of interaction (AJAX,
Flex/AIR, etc), documenting these has become much more complex and
dynamic. Would anyone mind sharing ideas or links?

So far, the best I've heard has been to rely more upon Wireframes and
Prototypes to communicate rich interaction -- however these still
feel insufficient for some reason...

ajax or not (for content)?

I realize this has been beaten to death, but I just came off a discussion
where the dev folks implemented ajax for

1. filters, pagination, larger image view, sort, change # of products (like
the ones in http://tinyurl.com/ythdmx)
2. content tabs

They claimed faster page load time as the biggest reason for doing it (and
most other people in the room were sold). I didn't agree and these are the
reasons I gave and they countered each of it:
