Ok, don't think this would take more than 2 days and you have a proper
application/gui that doesn't stress your server when you have more than
10 clients simulatiously fetching data from the rails balloon, he
possibly wants it realtime, doesn't he? :)

_He can even spend several thousand of dollars having a great connection
and hardware, then it doesn't need to scale - it just performs (hopefully)._

AJAX is a great framework to disburden your webserver and polling is,
imho, the Reverse„š°÷...
