IS it My shoutbox refreshes and requeries every 25 seconds, is this a bad idea?
EDIT: Oops, ignore the mistake in the title :P
Ive made a shoutbox using MySql and PHP what refreshes every 25 seconds so if anyone else posts it is shown without having to refresh the page, is this putting a lot of strain on my database or anything? The query itself searches one table containing 4 different fields (ID, name, shout, date).
Or is there a general better way to do this?
