Imagine that you have a WebSite on a public internet server.
Imagine that you have a Database on that Website that contains important data.
Imagine that you have a PC in your Home or Ofice.
Imagine that you want to keep a continually updated copy of that Internet Database on that PC. It could be essential to have access to the information even if your connection or Public WebSite is lost !!
Well you can !!!!
I have a small inexpensive PC at home in my spare bedroom. It is never (well hardly ever) switched off !!
You can get to it at: www.byershostingkayak.co.uk
use "SeeMirrorData" as both Username and Password
You will see the table of very important information in a table !!
Minimise that Browser Window and open www.byershostingpeter.co.uk/syncdemo/syncdemo.asp
Make one or more Additions/Modifications/Deletions to the Table
Allow up to two minutes before you re-open the 'LOCAL' version of the table and Refresh it.
You will see that it has been updated !!
The update delay could be very much less - but why would I do that just for this demonstration ??
