Oh Oh, somebody has come in and read the previous DRAFT's EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!! 

Ok..... the idea is quite simple. IT's a solution for a handling missing 
transactions over a network.

Put it this way if Server A want to Contact Server B they are doing an 
transaction, for some odd reason
Server A and B cannot communicate with each other anymore.

How can you deal with the issues of Dropped transactions? Remember these are 

Simple (well in theory) Make the transaction atomic, and repeatable.

Welll in theory you have the Server-Server communication this is what it's 
based on.

So each Server keeps a log, I use the example of JFS because it's where it's 
based of.

Each server has a log/journal of transactions. If a transaction is fulfilled 
it's flushed of, however
if it's not it's marked as active and retried until it's fulfilled.

The idea behind this was a Client Connects to Server A, in which case server a 
proxies for it to Server B.

However I think having the client have this is important, if we are going for 
peer-peer model.

If you have any specific Questions regardingg this please visit the IRC channel 
(hopefully I should be there
) or mail on the mailing list.
