Squink asks: "I've got the fun job of having to recode a medium sized (500-1000 users) community site from the ground up. For this project, gratuitous use of XMLHttpRequest appears to be in order. However - with the all of the hyperbole surrounding AJAX, I've not been able to find any useful information regarding server load [Apache + MySQL] when using some of the more useful AJAX applications, such as autocomplete. Is this really a non-issue, or are people neglecting to discuss this for fear of popping the Web2.0 bubble?"
