The time is taken from the server that hosts the script. If you are truley concerned about time limits, make the users stay in the same session for the duration. [/quote]
But if the time is always taken from the server, then do i really need a session? I'm not having any login or anything, so I don't see the benefit of sessions.

As For the intranet... as long as the server can be accessed, it is no different than the internet...pending how paranoid the administrator is..
So can I use any computer as a network? What do you mean about the administrator? Basically, I'm making a simulation for a club I'm a VP for on my campus. I've never used php or mysql before, and I've never dealt with servers or intranets or anything else of that sort. This is all very new to me. In fact, I deal mostly with Flash and Photoshop, so I'm very much a front-end guy. Anyways, the way this will be structured is that we rent a room on campus, get 5 people in front of the computers, and they enter transaction information for the other 30 or so people. The duration of this is 60 minutes, and we need to know exactly how many minutes are left, from any computer, at all times. We have become worried that if the internet goes down for some reason within the room, then our simulation will be screwed. As such, we were looking for a way around using the internet, and the topic of an intranet (or LAN) came up. I'm not sure how this works, so any and all information would be appreciated.
Sorry for the long reply.
Sorry Ken, I hadn't seen your reply. I think the time thing makes a little bit more sense because of that. So when I use the command 'time()', it gets the servers time, so even if my PC clock says its 12:01PM, and the server says it is 12:03PM, then it will take the 12:03PM, correct?[!--sizec--][/span][!--/sizec--]
