I've been doing some manual tests for the recorded kwon-tom times. To me it looks like the time starts when the mouse is clicked and the time stops when the new screen with my recorded time appears. This should imply that the system and network speed affects my kwon-tom time. Is this right?

At work I run Windows ME and the kwon-tom loop application is very slow.

Yes, the network speed and how long it takes to draw the puzzle does affect your time. The timer starts the instant the server sends the puzzle to you, and stops when it receives your solution. There's no other way to avoid people attempting to cheat - if it relied on you sending information on how long it took, there'd be nothing to stop someone with a tiny bit of web knowledge sending a shorter time!
