Hi!

I just came to think of a horrible thing.. the text to be diplayed in browser is read from a text file, but what if it happens so that at the same time this text file is tried to be read ?? One surfer will have an error of course-> could not read file...?

No... you can have a file open AND view it in a browser at the same time. And multiple users can see the same file at the same time.

It shouldn't be a problem... web servers can pump out info to hundreds of people at the same time using html pages, I've never known this to be an issue with txt files. Sometimes flat files can cause problems if you're writing and reading at the same time, but reading should be fine with txt files.
