Re: [sc-dev] [commit?] latency and punctuality

I like this, and I agree about the name.

Thank you Julian, I think this is a good approach and clear!

 what about adding a class variable to Node:

I think that if anything it should be:

classvar <>useLatency = false;

this seems ok.

or useServerLatency (maybe better because it explains
where the latency number comes from)

or <>messageLatency = nil  // or 0.2 or whatever

"punctual" is going to confuse people.

punctual is more a joke on my side, but I intended something generally meaningful, without knowing the implementation details.

In many ways the messageLatency would be preferable.

I think it is better to keep the latency value in one place.
(in the server model)

Initially my Voicer class used a boolean to say
whether to use latency or not, but I changed it to a
number or nil because the boolean was limiting.

I think it should be turned off by default (will break
less stuff).


 (it actually is quite uncomfortable
 for me to see how
 many people use it and how unreliable it is due to
 the timing issue)

It's finally in the documentation as of last night, so
there's no longer an excuse for people not to know
about the issues.

yes, thank you for this.
Nevertheless I think the makeBundle workaround is hard to explain.

(If you add this, please update the ServerTiming help

of course.
