Remote Scripting with IFRAME
Subject:   Start Navigation sound and cursor during RPC call

I have developed a system that polls the server every second using this RPC technique. It works great, but the "start navigation" sound, a "click" on my PC, sound every time I do. Also the cursor changes from an arrow to an arrow with an hourglass. Then there is the URL of the server procedure flashing by in the status bar.

This is a visual and auditory distraction. While I can get rid of the noise and the status bar, the cursor changing once a second is VERY annoying.

Right now my only real solution is to poll less frequently, say every 10 seconds. Is there a better solution?
