Subject: Re: data transference

I'm currently working on my diploma thesis, a programm to compose music via
the internet. For this program I looked at some max - networking - Objects
(UTP and W). But non of them is suttisfying for my needs. A perfect Networking
object for my application would be a standard TCP/IP communication object.
If I can't find such a Patch, I will implement it for my Thesis.
Thanks frontoff for your help,

What's the current wisdom on running MaxMSP on the latest powerbook vs. the latest desktop
G3? I am planning to buy a machine for the express purpose of live MSP work, and would
appreciate anyone's opinion or experience.
