I am trying to sync the advancement of Keynote slides on two matching computers. I am running into a delay on the second machine. ( I have switched the tell blocks and the second machine is always delayed) Is there a way to have applescript process two tell commands at the same time instead of one after the other. The script with the delay is as follows

using terms from application "Keynote" tell application "Keynote" of machine remoteMac1 show next end tell tell application "keynote" of machine remoteMac2 show next end tell end using terms from

Any ideas?
