    I don't know much about coding, and I imagine SE*nuke takes a fair amount of resources/processes whatever. So, I imagine a lot of JavaScript would be needed when creating a web-based script so as not to overload the server(s) and use the users PC for a lot of the work, but I have no idea if that would work or if it even makes sense.

    I wonder if it would still take a bunch of servers to operate such a script, say maybe with a cap of 200 users.

    Does anyone have any ideas on these things and what sort of cost would be involved? I understand that the ongoing maintenance would be very necessary, and the cost would need to be taken into account as well as server(s) cost - it seems these would be the two major expenses.
