Welcome back

10 days in Thailand was a welcome break. Nearly decided to stay ;-)

Now it's back to the grindstone with the usual 101 things on the boil, juggling and trying to squeeze everything in before xmas. Yesterday hooked up my first Ajax code in anger and was quite happy with the results (and totally amazed at the speed!). Today spent some time trying to decide how to handle a long running server action over a http connection. The major app we're workign on at the moment requires the upload and processing of some hefty files and sometimes the browser times out. There's not a great deal that can be done over a http connection. I have a cruel and cunning plan I'm going to implement tomorrow and see how we go it's be a combination of a crafty 302 redirect and maybe some ajax in the destination page to poll for the results of the upload.
