Personally I would write to a local file all the time and have a second
process that reads that file and updates the server.  That way you
don't have to worry about external resources in your main program.  As
a side effect, you automatically get a local backup.  If the server
goes down your secondary process deals with it, not your primary app
that is handling your user requests.
