Topic: Server-side Timer Synchronized with Client(s)

I'm building an application that allows users to submit images, after a certain period of time (based on the number of current users) the highest rated image is selected and the application will begin accepting a new set of submissions.

My question is, how should I implement this?  Should I use threads, or what other options do I have?  Also, what kind of scheme could I use to synchronize the timer with all of the clients (i.e. an accurate timer on the page)?

Thanks in advance,
Pat

What kind of timeframe are you thinking about?  Days? Seconds?

probably in the range of 1 minute to 1 hour (it is variable).  Thanks for responding!
