Hi, don't bee fooled by all this multi-threading hype. For example, have a look at and theire LRWP protocol. This is done using a cooperative multi-tasking. Very cool and fast, and it can be coupled with Rebol quite easy. Remember: multi threading won't solve performance problems just because it's multi threaded... -- Robert M.
