Thanks for that. It pretty much confirms what I'd been thinking. Having another App (in whatever language) fire up a REBOL console whenever needed is a simple solution. But it may have all sorts of performance downsides, especially if REBOL has to handshake with MySQL each time. Having a long-running task that talks via TCP/IP to the boss is simpler conceptually. but adds reliability headaches -- whose job is it to restart the LRTs if they fall over? We're going to dabble around with designs and see what looks the best, Thanks again, Sunanda.
