Was playing around tonight with PHP and ajax calls. I had been using them quite liberally in .NET Core, and it's not that much different with PHP--same jQuery, basic GET or POST, big thing really different is server-side. I'm merely returning base-64 encoded text--this case, a JPG. I display the JPG via labeling in the src of the img tag. In the end, it's simpler than what I've done with ajax calls in the past--it's mostly been JSON being returned and, here, it's just very one long text string.
Confession: When playing Hearthstone, I use the quick chat to say "Hello". If the person on the other side doesn't return the greeting, I repeat the greeting at diminishing regular intervals and draw out all turns to their maximum amount of time until they do; I don't like rude people who don't say "hello" 🤣
