I am looking to build an application where the end users can write in a text box to post to a message board, where others can read, this data will be persisted in a SQL DB. Thats the simple part.
If an end user just sits on that page, I want the page to auto-load new posts in without any page refresh. It's almost exactly like how new posts load on Facebook, and goal flashes on the BBC football site (for the UK football fans reading here). I have a few ideas on how to achieve this, but was interested to hear other views before I begin to design the architecture and start cutting any code.
