Hi Derek,

No need for SSI (but feel free to use that trick), a simple Ajax request 
will do:

<script type="text/javascript">
     new Ajax.Updater( 'fplatest', '/cgi/latest_tool', { parameters: { 
"mode":"fplatest", "mainonly":"yes" } } );
</script>

This would insert the latest additions to the element whose ID is 
"fplatest" (the 1st param of Ajax.Updater).

Just adapt the code above just note the use of "mainonly = yes" to ask 
the cgi to return only the page fragment/content rather than the entire 
html document.

Seb.
