working actually on a (big) permanent installation for a french museum (more info asap!), I designed a system to start & stop all 20 clients remotely from a server (using udp messages)
it works, it is nice :)
the server is always up.
now, I need to upgrade this stuff by using a real calendar.
indeed, the exhibition will be ON at particular hours, OFF on sunday + each day off etc.
I thought about 2 ways:
- full max calendar
- server OS (windows) calendar + schedulded launch of patch
what would you do ?
I don't know if the collective (exe) I can launch stay open or not. indeed, I'd trigger actions with a loadbang so I'd need to trigger action & close the patch after...
