Hi Arlo,

It is good to know that I can use golang to develop the server
component. I am going to rewrite this part.

Since the monitoring protocol is done periodically so there certainly
exist a case of an unexpected key change whereas there are not any
conversation windows. In such a case, how do we show the message using
the notification bar? I think that a popup modal is a good choice for
this situation.

Btw, I also added a timeout enforcement for responding to events in my
proposal. Timeout for requests is 100ms and this can be changed based
on some surveys and tests during development phase (may the
registration request take a longer time than other requests?).

Best Regards,
Vu Huy
