There is no legal responsibility, but our reputation is at stake. Each "client" is a Web browser, so it doesn't matter if they have multiple machines as we handle the transitions on the server side. The clients won't be logged in multiple times on different machines for the same user context and if they do, they understand there are no guarantees and that they're not supposed to do that. In other words, each user's context can be considered a single-threaded process and each transition happens sequentially, but the state is maintained across HTTP requests.

A transition, once it is triggered, should not be cancelleable or timed out.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
