    Why html data has to be send to a different server to process?

    When I ask this, I'm not being smart...I'm legitimately curious. What do pointers have to do with anything? As for the Facebook example, I was merely pointing out that C++ is useable. Your posts made it seem as though C++ is dangerous, or as you say "unsafe", which it isn't. People use...

    Why html data has to be send to a different server to process?

    @Avichal: I always have a hard time explaining what CGI is. It's not actually a program, but a set of rules...a standard. CGI scripts (typically coded in Perl, but can be coded in C/C++, Unix Shell scripts, etc) are used to interface the browser with the server, but in a very specific way. Best...

The purpose of the server is to, well, serve you data and exactly how it does this depends on the server technology you are using (examples include Apache...

    Setting browser to check for changes to a page?

    I used to use Page Monitor when I wanted to keep up with certain blogs that weren't setup for RSS. It's a Chrome addon, so you'll obviously need Chrome. Then you simply visit the page, click the button, and you'll get notifications. I don't use it anymore, but I think there was a setting to set...
