Hi everyone, I have a quick problem. What I want to do is time how long a user takes to do a test. To do this I would like to start a thread which increments the time for a user. I would like do this for multiple users and so I wanted to use a hash class variable (static). This doesn't work from my rails app, how ever it works fine in my test code. After doing some research I see that webrick executes each request in a seperate thread. I think this is my issue and it explains some other decisions made in rails (like storing session data in a cookie). I am now thinking that I will have to do a seperate little app that can time items based on an id. Then have a webservice that can be access via my rails app. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can achieve what I want without having a seperate application? Thanks, Carl.

session is your friend. At start of test, store start time. At end of time, use it to figure difference. -- -- Tom M.
