What would be a short, human name (so that support dude can spell it) for a concept where user action is non-blocking and state is synchronized in the background?
In my case I mark some clients as having really crap network and thus force them into such mode of operation.
Normal mode of operation is on-line, synchronous, blocking, live, soft real-time and ignores cached data.
Modern "offline html5" application do this, AJAX does it, Unix AIO does it, but what is it called?
Candidates so far
asynchronous (spelling) non-blocking offline (unclear) batched (incorrect) network-challenged (😼) cached (Tomasz) delayed ... ... ...

(too bad lads decided to close this down, "human word for technical term asynchronous" is a valid question, and will continue to be pertinent until the whole world goes online)
