comment Is it feasible/practical to run a Comet-style/long polling application served by nginx + PHP/FastCGI?
Thanks for the link, but it really doesn't give me that much information to be able to work with, such as pricing, since it's clearly a paid-for system. I'd hate to find myself liking it and then finding it is inordinately expensive.

That is how I was reading it; that I create channels for the individual clients, and use an asynchronous (i.e. regular AJAX) request when a user makes an update, that goes off to PHP via FastCGI, which then republishes it to the appropriate channel(s). Awesome, thank you for confirming what I thought :)
