Not that I can see as of yet.. It's really interesting the way they handled
it. Basically, there are actually THREE servers users. Once handles your
login, then passes you off the another server which handles your login for
sending data in and out. Yet a third is used when actually chatting. Leads to
quite an interesting system. Basically, they can have one or two login
servers, an infinite number of Notification servers, and yet another infinite
number of chat servers. It's expandable by delegating the responsibilities
across three machines, only ONE of which you need to know the address of upon
connection, and what it does is so simple, it's the same as a web server
designated to serving up simply one line static pages. I'm willing to bet the
authentication is passed to a series of servers as well..
