Thanks for your input,

@Dagan: I'm just on a Dreamhost shared server at the moment, may go back to
slicehost once the project is more mature.

@Eric: I did notice the thread when it first came round, and it seems like
the conclusion was to just stick with Ajax long-polling for the time being;
due to server and browser support.

@Claude: Thanks for the efficiency tip, I may look into writing live data
to an XML file for faster reading!


Does anybody have any advice on how I can convert my current code, which is
a simple 'short' poll of the server every 10 seconds, to something more
like long-polling?
