Abstract

Proposed is a method which alerts the operating system when any shell window perceives a timeout or unexpected delay and the eventual search comes back with a failure. Then, a set or all of the shell entities will have their PATH values switched to alternative, "safe" paths which can temporarily avoid network problems.
