WARNING: Do not install this plugin it will kill your server

Installed this plugin to test. Test between 2 browsers did not work, just said both parties were offline.

Within 3 minutes the entire site was unresponsive. Contacted my host, apparently massive server load from the 2 instances I had open in the 2 browsers. Took the whole site down for several hours.

Spent the last 30 minutes now dealing with my hosting company, still have not gotten the site back online.

Very badly written and dangerous piece of code, use very much at your own risk.
