:) no worries Ricky you're willing to help and that's a Good Thing(TM).

At my company we've been using a Java applet based asynchronous webpage update 
mechanism for the past 5 years. I wrote it to achieve the exact same 
requirement that AJAX fulfils: avoiding those lengthy http POST page 
refreshes! Our (ahem, proprietary) system also talks to other back-end 
servers to provide various data feeds to web-based GUIs using Adobe SVG 
viewer and various Java applets.
