While I do think that polling once a second will not do any noticeable 
harm, a better design might be to push some kind of message from the 
other site and wait for same in a function that does an appropriate OS 

(E.g a TThread doing a blocking wait for a pipe and then using 
TThread.Queue to call an event handler function in the main thread.)
