ok without name callingfor making this post,

there is NO possibility that the request from 2 different machines even if they are in the same room on the same router, took the same path to the server,
the absolute impossibility that any person pushed the send key at the same time on two pcs within the millisecond tolerance of time()
of course they arrived at the server at different times,
of course the server had a different work load during the execution of the two requests
of course the returned html took different paths to the remote pc, took different times to render on different browsers and different times to displaytime() is the timestamp of that moment,
time() is not a timer
it is a snapshot of the unix clock WHATEVER you were trying to time,
the famous "It", of the op
which of course the thread does not state, will take a different time to execute every time it is run

now what are you trying to accomplish and show the code you are using to try and accomplish it with, between [code] and [/code] tags

PS, thanks for a giggle, seriously what are you trying to accomplish ?
