Hi Bob,

I have a "Play" button that when hit will display a series of images one 
per x seconds.  I want to use the periodical to trigger a new image 
every x seconds.

I want to do this using Ajax - when the "Play" button is hit I have an 
Ajax callback that on the first invocation, sets up the Periodical.  My 
problem is that I cannot figure out how to setup the periodical in an 
Ajax callback.

Because I cannot figure out how to start the Periodical in an Ajax 
callback, my "solution" was to setup the Periodical in my 
renderContentOn: and immediately stop it.  Later when the "Play" button 
is hit, I start the Periodical.

I hope that explains what I am up to.

I do appreciate your help, thanks.
