So, the conclussion about "Persistant Connections" is that they are good but
there is no hardware capable of support a massive site, am I right?
I'll be very interesting to see what's the max quantity of users a simple
server could handle (like the one that every hosting company has).
And, if it is not practical to implement this mechanism, what would be the
alternative?, maybe WebServices with some DB backend?
