simple question, but have not been able to find the answer - what is the frequency of the xml socket in flash 5? is it determined only by the framerate (iow by how often we can trigger an event) or is there some other (fixed/variable?) parameter at work

this ties into my other question about java - since the math engine in java is so much more powerful than that used by the flash player, would it be possible, at least in theory, to offload something like 10000 computations to an applet, and retrieve that information as it is needed

i am trying to develop some cellular automata-like things, but finding that flash gets very very choppy and processor hungry when asked to do any hefty parallel processing...

thanks for any help/pointers/ideas... also, if you're still fresh on those calculus classes, maybe you can lend a hand with my other query:

(how to differentiate in actionscript)

thanks!
