It is mainly to keep the users informed. The actual process I will be running with the results of a user built template being passed to a mass SMS scheduler. There could be as little as 10 SMS text being sent or as many as 100,000. I would like the user to have some feedback on the result/status of the loop, if possible.

    In that case I'd be inclined to fork off a process to handle the scheduling task and return a page that has a timed refresh (include <META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="30"> in <head> for a refresh every 30 seconds for example) while the scheduling task is running.

    True laziness is hard work
