I did read the source that
a)LoopingCall is implemented via calllater's
b)internet.TimerService is a big wrapper around loopingcall

I've probably simplified it too much but what then is the difference?
thank you

Thanks for twisted - very useful. Now, my questions
I have written a server which accepts connections from clients, takes requests and adds them to a Queue (a python object of Queue.Queue).
Now i have two approaches

a) At startup, my server(a subclass of pb.Root)  runs a "dispatcher" function using task.LoopingCall(dispatcher).start(0.1)
b)Create a separate subclass of internet.TimerService whose function is dispatcher

[INFO: dispatcher has methods like obj.callRemote, addCallback and addErrback]

So which is better, neater, safer? loopingcall of timerservice? also is it safe to do the calls mentioned in INFO within dispatcher?

Thank you for your time and help.
