Instance Method Details

#stale?Boolean

Tells you if the record is stale or not. Meaning the record has timed out. This will only return true if you set logout_on_timeout to true in your configuration. Basically how a bank website works. If you aren't active over a certain period of time your session becomes stale and requires you to log back in.
