Avoiding FLOOD_WAITs

If you make too many requests to telegram, you might get FLOOD_WAITed for a while. To avoid these flood waits, you must calculate the flood wait rate.

Calculate it by making N of method calls until you get a FLOOD_WAIT_X

floodwaitrate = time it took you to make the method calls + X

Use sleep to execute max N calls in floodwaitrate seconds, this way you won’t get flood waited!
