No, but due to the lack of independent processes in RunRev and the  
way in which "post" (and URL library in general) works, I couldn't  
make a reliable application with just one standalone. I'd *much*  
rather have just one Standalone, but the other stuff needs to work too.

I have an application that periodically creates or updates an SQLite  
database (actually there are lots of databases (separate SQLite  
files), but only one is worked on at a time) and then sends the  
results to the server. This process can take upwards of 15 minutes to  
complete. In the meantime I want to be able to still use the  
application to do other things (such as create playlists in iTunes).

The application(s) must run under Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista.

Any ideas on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.

All the Best
Dave
