37Signals load testing Campfire – new chat application

Category: Chat, Prototype, Ruby

37Signals is load testing their new chat application, Campfire. Run over there to take a look and try to bring their servers down. =) Would you use this over standard instant messaging or the other chat apps out there? Campfire certainly looks like the most user friendly chat app for those clients who aren’t technically inclined.

Update: The test is over.

Hi guys!

I created a control that works like an AJAX container. Basically the way it works is that all the ASP.NET controls that you place inside of the AJAX container will automatically become AJAX enabled.

For example, at the same website where I uploaded the control assembly, I also posted a tutorial that walks you through the steps to create an AJAX chat application. You will see that you can code the ASP.NET controls exactly the same way you do in other regular projects. The controls are placed inside of the AJAX container which turns them into AJAX enabled. This AJAX container also has a property called ShouldRefresh. When set to true, it will update the contents of all the ASP.NET controls inside of the container.

I uploaded this control and posted some walkthrough tutorials at

Check it out!
