so this stuff actually exists for a while: http://jibbering.com/2002/4/httprequest.html
and I didn't even know.
So far I have seen this stuff mostly only working with the M$ servers but I could not imagine that apache would not - gotta read up on that - damn - this is so fascinating stuff and all this where I should be sitting here translating this book - for money that is ;-)
But ming, there is the push to do something with the second opinion, because we can learn all the xmlhttp stuff building that.

I didn't know about it either, before I read the guy explaining how Google Suggest works. I had been wanting to do that kind of thing for a long time, and thought I had to use Flash for it, but didn't get around to studying it.
Yes, there's excellent opportunities for doing cool things that use facilities like that. Few people are doing that, so the time is ripe.

so, can you put this scrolling map thing together with the photo map stuff and have it pick up live webcams along the way, as you come to them?

People have already played a bit with making it show different things, apparently. Like, it would be cool with satellite maps, rather than regular maps. And since the interface to it is pretty open, yeah, no reason one shouldn't be able to combine it with some other location based stuff, and superimpose some other things on it. Great fun.

If you want some cleaver usage of some of the techniques, check out my "All-in-One-Page" RSS reader and podcast downloader pages.
This page is close to an RSS reader and auto playsback all enclosure audio.
from above page you can go to a similar .hta page which will save the enclosure link audio files to your drive. (to allow saving you need to be in low security mode, so save the hta to you pc - or and this is not advisable you need to make my site a trusted site)

Sounds great. Oops, it seems to be a Windows IE only thing?
