I know it might be killing a fly with a tomahawk, but, you can create
two standalone stacks, one will do the loading and preparation of the
data, the other will serve as client, you can create your own protocol
for communication, or use LibIPC or even use my revHTTPd framework.
Like a thin client for your pleasure and a working horse behind...
don't know what you're doing and this might be more work than waiting
for the loop.
If you're doing some scientific computing thingie or data mining stuff,
this might be a good way to go, a network-savvy number crunching stack
and a thin client...
