The website is for auctions, similar to Swoopo.com
If someone bids, the timer goes up 15 seconds.
And we need it to update on everyones browser without having to refresh the entire page.
Not just that one users browser that placed a bid, if we could do that we would but the problem lies in with, if someone bids the price goes up, naturally, but if it doesn't update the bid price (which gets changed same as timer) on everyones browser, they will end up bidding lower than the highest bidder unless they refresh right before they bid.
