I’ve been rather busy lately with quite a few things:
- grad school essays
- family stuff (Thanksgiving, Christmas shopping)
- taking Tyler to fun Denver stuff
I plan on blogging about that soon, and what it takes to write a long-polling Ajax web app in Sinatra to talk with XMPP. Later, I’ll go on to write how to create your own chat system completely in the browser. By the way, I have heard of web sockets and I’m super excited to ditch the long polling in favor of them. But until they’re in a little more broad use, I’ll stick with my simple solution.
Gotta love the busy holiday season!
