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,
