Depending on your license level, tsNet may not be available.

I was recently looking for a way to force clear browser cache in  
LiveCode browser widget (still can't figure it out, even trying the  
"?seconds" parameter discussed on the list) and discovered the LOAD  
command in LiveCode. Where PUT is blocking, LOAD is not so your code  
should be able to proceed while waiting for a callback.
