server vs not server

Most daemons I have built with LC will poll a folder at a set time
interval, and act accordingly dependent upon what it finds in the folder.
A polling interval set too short can make the server slower. Setting it
too long makes the users complain about waiting 30 seconds or a minute.
Using LC Server for the same tasks makes it on-demand, and much more
efficient. The only con is that some tasks may require elevated
privileges, and since it isn't being run by a normal user, this can be
tricky. I have some of both, but my goal is to port all my daemons to LC
