You are absolutely correct!  I happen to be one of those folks that dont trust
computers at all, if I dont see output, something is probably broken.
Especially for long searches, or other activites that are take a fair amount of
time, the server should be able to send a simple message "Yup, Im still here,
still working, gimme another 15 minutes"
