Just testing out the EventSource stream. You can take a look to see it [possibly] in action.

With any luck it'll stream any quick updates to the page automatically—visit it and check!

I admit that I'm possibly laying waste to the front page of my site right now, but this could be really useful. I'll write up the technique soon too—and try to make it more complete than the sources I had to use to eventually make this.

Creating a live stream of updates has been something I've thought about for a year or more. I need to work on making accessible to people who don't use JavaScript, but I think that will be pretty easy. More on this tomorrow!
