I was discussing with a friend about the creation of a monitoring dashboard in HTML. As any monitoring tool you want to be able to see the information in real-time, so you need to refresh the content....
One way of doing it is to refresh the whole page and this is easy, just use the meta tag:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="5; URL=http://www.grallandco.com/" >
where 5 is the number of seconds between each refresh.
You can obviously make the whole think dynamic and configurable...
