Hi,

Apologies if this one is too obvious :)

A beginner in me would like to know as to what all changes would be 
required to get this protocol running. Server? Client? Client, obviously! 
But i feel it's possible without any server change (maybe for most 
cases). The client would ask for an update every n seconds, and maybe 
check if the new data has a timestamp newer than the previous one.

Additionally, i would like some action to take place every time the user 
presses <cr> in a form field, or selects a different "radio" option.

Time has come to make http interactive! Say what?

MOTD:  I haven't lost my mind, it's backed up on some tape somewhere.
