Oh, another important point, individual messages are not broadcast
separately. Each time a person logs on there will be a synchronization that
takes place. So, if they have not logged in for over 10 hours, they will get
a customized delta packet compressed and shipped over the wire efficiently
for the last 10 hours of stuff. Then on their end it will be decompressed
and applied.

So, where the hits will take place is when people log in and synchronize.
Perhaps Monday mornings will be the hardest but the fortunate thing is we
are all in spread out time zones. Also, the majority of what people will be
doing is on their local machines.

I believe this will have great benefits in a lot of ways.

Any other thoughts?
