Hi Bob,

(you are going to kick yourself) you have misplaced the colon between  
target and self  - there is a comma there, and the colon has been  
placed in front of "target", so the method is not being recognised.

     @synchro_timer =  
NSTimer.scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval(TIME_INTERVAL, target:self,  
selector:"synchronise_with_server:", userInfo:nil, repeats:true)

as for threads - maybe someone else could chime in with a preference -  
but I do it the Cocoa way (eg http Connection delegates or timers) -  
but for data crunching using all cores I will use something like  
Laurent's barber shop code: http://www.macruby.org/blog/2009/10/07/macruby05b1.html
