    I have a process that sometimes takes quite a while to complete (5-10
    seconds), and while it's going, I'd like to show the user a little message
    with an animated gif or something to let them know it's really working.

    Any ideas?

    Here is what I do:

    1. Create a new thread and place the thread in a session variable

    2. Redirect user to a processing page. Wait for 5 seconds

    3. Redirect back to inital page, check session variable to see if thread is
    complete. If not, Redirect to processing page.

    4. Repeat.
