A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Worker Threads in Javascript?

Does anyone know if it is possible to simulate worker threads in Javascript. I need a method of constantly polling a particular resource and dispatching events based on conditions in that resource.

Currently I am thinking that I will have to have methods triggered off timers. Is this acceptable?
