Hi Guys and Gals,

I am trying to build a face book like news feed and would like to update the news feed with the latest posts / status updates...

I am currently using asp to load all the data on another page, and then using jquery.load to bring the new feed in...

I am then setting up a recursive function that reload the news feeds every 3 seconds...

the only issue is, this is really crappy with images, they constantly keep dl'ing, and i think there is a better way of doing this...

Does anyone have any recommendations on how to do this?

Can i compare the current loaded news feed with the one on the external page, and then reload it based on the new changes?

Thanks for any insight into this issue,

Cheers

Baleric.
