Bug Description

If the user logs out and logs in again seconds later, Brain Break will lose all of its state and start from the beginning. This could become a natural skipping mechanism for some users β€” particularly people who mostly use web browsers (which do a very good job at not losing their spot). It also limits our ability to build more permanent types of breaks, such as daily limits.

With some work, we could get Brain Break to store its state in a cache file and pick up from there at startup. Ideally, the same mechanism could be used over a network or across user accounts.
