My issue is that I need to calculate the "broadcast" latency from  
server to the client which means that the timestamp has to be set on  
the server.

I took a look at the time difference between erl on two Amazon EC2  
instances and there doesn't seem to be much of a difference, e.g.

timer:now_diff({1247,266330,594942}, {1247,266331,294060}).

I had to switch windows and type enter so that accounts for some of  
the difference. 70ms should not make a difference against the 4s that  
I'm trying to cut down.

I'll try to stamp messages on the server and see what I get on the  
client tomorrow. I already have a stats server to calculate min, max,  
avg, etc.

	Thanks, Joel
