Yeah I was thinking the same. Since I know that the server side process will
take a certain time to complete, a javascript function to 'POST' a request
for data after that much time should be good enough.
I was wondering if there are any inherent time lags when using
xmlhttprequest, since its asynchronous, that you know of or any caveats one
should keep in mind.
By the way...the server and the client are sitting very very close to each
other :))

Thanks and best regards,
