How long is this "finite time"? My Windows Steam client has been offline for months - I'm behind a campus proxy and can't be arsed to use a proxifier or VPN on Windows. I use Wine + redsocks + tor on Linux to update the SteamApps directory as and when needed, but otherwise there's no connection between the Wine Steam and Windows Steam.
