Realtime Updates!

For a while I tried to figure out how to develop a system for streaming realtime updates on this web pages.

Maybe WebSocket could be the best choice, but at the moment I'm too lazy to install test and run Node.js in this production environment.

Finally, I opted for a jquery-apache-php long-polling method, which I was able to implement in one single sunday afternoon.

At the moment, new board posts [and edits] are streamed out in realtime (1s delay) to the website pages (see bottom left "Realtime Updates")
