If I understand, a "complete chain" is a single street, so my estimate is off by a factor of 10 .. so over 1000 days for the upload! Can that be right? 

1 road for ever about every 9 people .. that sounds like the US! ;)

I just finished loading TIGER 2005fe and found that there were 
35,809,110 road segments ("complete chains").
