It'd be correct and logical to define it on every one. You shouldn't worry about the performance of these things too much.

comment How should I architect a personal schedule manager that runs 24/7?
I don't have time to offer a complete answer, but it seems like you want good concurrency. Erlang (website, wikipedia) was designed to run things like this, so give it a look over.

comment Performance: recursion vs. iteration in Javascript
