Re: [Sc-devel] Servers with nil latency?

Hi James and Josh,

Let me rephrase my question: "what is the difference between setting server's latency to nil and setting it to 0"?

Hi all,

  In Event there is a switch for a Server with latency = nil.  When
and why does that ever happen?

If you take out the switch, events will die if somebody sets latency
to nil. Do we want to make it an explicit requirement that you must
have a numeric value in the server's latency variable to use event

Obviously it's better for timing if the latency value is there, but
I'm not sure it needs to be an absolute rule - latency or death. (Cake
or death?)
