I suggest having a Rev stack running permanently on the server that 
communicates with clients using TCP/IP sockets. This should work since the 
data sent in each of your messages is small (socket messages are around 1400 
KB max).  For example scripts see the Rev site > Video Tutorials > Sample 
Projects > Internet Chat (also the chatRev examples in Rev Online, User 
Spaces, General).  The alternative of sending posts to a Rev CGI causes an 
instance of Rev to open for each post, as I understand things, so would seem 
to be more resource intensive.
