An example of using the HTTP request block to retrieve online stock quotes from Yahoo Finance.
The request is performed in a separate fiber, created by the Fork block, so the flow isn't blocked and will continue to run even if there's a failure to connect, due to a loss of internet connectivity or otherwise.
Lesson; always perform operations that may fail in a separate fiber.
