Would like to have the timing logic or mechanism in my bidding web system optimized. Everything is already developed (PHP Kohana) and setup (on local dedicated server). Database used is MySQL.
Currently the timer is not synchronized across all web browsers (clients), ie in real bidding situations, the time count down and current highest bidder could be showing different time & people OR delayed showing the most recent updates. Time factor is crucial in bidding sites therefore such delays & out-of-sync info is unacceptable yet detrimental to our web system reputation.

You can use the below accounts to test bidding on the web system to observe the delayed behavior across same & different browsers.
Note that you would need to use different "browser users" if attempt to login both accounts for local testing on the same browser (cache / cookies issue).
Demo User account
a) Username : testuser1
Password : testuser1
b) Username : testuser2
Password : testuser2
The time line expected for this is just a few days. Please PM me for more details / questions.
