It probably wouldn't take more than half an hour to get a proof of concept server running node or sinatra up on heroku...might make a fun project

I was just thinking out loud that it might be fun to bang out a chat server that shuttled encrypted messages between clients. Heroku is a cloud computing platform, Node and Ruby programming languages/environments that are really easy to get up and running on that platform.
Refactoring is easy if you've been keeping up on tests. Rather than accepting that things get hard once you get past half a dozen functions you should learn to use tests to help you develop sane code and testing to ensure you don't ruin everything. It's never a bad time to start writing tests for your code.
