Is it the same for socket I/O ?
I am concerned about image and video uploads in Seaside.
Videos may be quite heavy. But even image from a camera 1400x1200 pixels
may freeze the image if socket I/O blocked. In any case I see that i need
to save images/videos on disk in a separate OS process. Hmm, could you hint
me where to look for a code snippet?
