We can have a very noticeable warning and a predictable reset time with
probably a count down timer on the launch page.  The reason I suggest to
do this is that people will spam the machine in all kinds of ways which
other users might find offensive or inconvenient.  We could, of course,
decide on a different value.  I just thought that 15 minutes will be a
sufficient time for most people.
