There is a new Apache::ASP mailing list.  You can subscribe

If you really need to keep the client busy, then try a 
  $Response->Write("\n"); $Response->Flush;
The web browser just needs to see something from time
to time.

No, this is all server side.

If its a long job, like a big SQL command being executed
then you might have to take a different approach because
your process will lock waiting for the SQL command execute
to return.  In this case you might try forking a job into 
the background and waiting for its results.  You might
also try something like a meta refresh on itself, and 
keep checking for whether the job is done.
