    Sending positive feedback on the new alerts. I've been enjoying extra smiles as I see Alerts update even as I sit back and watch. I even saw a new alert update when I was looking at the new alert popup dialog. Way cool and I expect this will be a great asset at boosting the pace of interaction here at PF.

    EDIT: @Greg Bernhardt - Do you get to push the alerts to the client, or does the client have to send heartbeat checks, or does it depend on the platform/browser?

    At the moment it requires a refresh. I can push the alert to yo without refresh but that takes more resources. Once we optimize things I might turn it on to see how the server handles it.
