Thanks for the information, I think I'll look on this way.
My goal is to create a persistent game with html acces. I need to
update the world periodicly, and not to wait that a user upload a page
for checking and launch all the tasks. Each tasks will be counted as a
thread, wich can be update for the game, mail on the intern mail
service, saves and more...
Before coding anything, I would like to be sure that what I want to do
is realizable..
