Weekend hack: Shared whiteboard in JavaScript

My adventures with XMLHTTPRequest and a never-ending HTTP response:

Draw and chat with your friends: (or play pictionary!)

http://www.danga.com/misc/jsdraw/xmlhttp.html

Just a prototype. Requires FireFox at present. IE is lacking a number of useful features.

Soon to be added:
-- named spaces, so people can make their own space w/ friends, and not fight tons of people on the net for drawing
-- colors / color picker
-- brushes
-- infinite board
-- see nicks, not IPs, in chat
-- server-side saving of old wiped images (so clients can see last 20 images)

Enjoy.
