I'm currently working on a helpdesk app in Javascript, which is
actually coming along very nicely (which is why you see so many
questions from me on this list as of late).  One of the things we were
looking at putting in was updating a frame every so many
seconds/minutes, which would have help tickets in it.  Since the loop
brings up that message, it looks like we'll have to use server-push to
update the frame.

I would definitely like to see one of those "Do Not Bother Me Again
With this Message" buttons, just like on the "this is an insecure
transaction" message.  I can definitely see the need for both of these
things when working on the internet, but within a corporate network, I
don't think it's necessary.
