I've asked the client if I can write a blog post with details of the implementation so I'm hesitant to say too much until I get a response from him (he's presenting in front of a pretty large crowd in London at the moment, don't think he'll get back to me until later today). Essentially it's a very lightweight and extremely simple implementation of Comet, the result of which is near-realtime communication from server to client. I should note that chat is not the use case for which it was created, but pnotes.org was the simplest chat implementation I could come up with for testing purposes. I've since had several ideas around how I might develop it further along these lines, but spare time is currently in short supply. -Stuart  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comet_(programming) -- http://stut.net/ -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
