ohhhhh.... i see :)  thats neat.  thanks eric, you've been very 
helpful.  i'm trying to get two laptops to stay tightly in sync, the 
problem is when one of us loads up the next song file, pd pegs the CPU 
for 1-4 seconds which it loads all my massive objects... which means the 
timers get a little wacky.  using this midi time signature from my 
groovebox will give me a good solid clock, but now i think that they 
might still get out of sync as to where the measures begin exactly... i 
need to figure out a way to get them on the same tick...
