I was wondering how for example drop box or a NAS is coping with the different file systems on different operating systems when sharing a folder? I was reading more about the different file systems and noticed that they ol have their size limits or they all safe their files in a different way. But how is it possible to have shared network folder between these different operating systems and their file systems. Because for example a FAT32 file system cannot have files larger than 4GB. But what if a user with a NTFS file system shares a folder with …

This question covers Windows only. I know Microsoft makes a wide variety of other software products (Office, Exchange, etc.), I'm not interested in them, only in the Desktop Operating Systems. [B]First[/B] - unlike the most of you, I've read Microsoft's financial reports, and understand accounting. I know how much money Microsoft has on hand, and how unlikely this scenario is. I'm asking the question to find out what people currently think are their best options, if Windows is no longer available. [B]Second[/B] - this is not a troll. I know there are a lot of Windows fans here. I'm not …

System Administrators (SAs) have a tough job: Dealing with users and user accounts, security, patching, updates, upgrades, disk space, performance and other miscellaneous tasks often known as "other duties as assigned." For some SAs, the day never ends. Despite the challenges, pitfalls and occasional irate user; system administration is a fulfilling job with intangible rewards like no other position in IT. To assist those weary SAs in their quest to conquer their Linux systems, I've devised this list of 12 native Linux system monitoring tools that are always at my fingertips. Any user may issue these commands, if they exist …

I have to create a system design for a cashier system. Most of the transactions would be payments for fees in a student account. Fees like Tuition, Books, Enrollment Fees. The problem with these fees are their special characteristics like Tuition fees being staggered in MONTHLY itemization (if that's a correct term), Books can also be staggered but payable throughout a year without itemization, and Enrollment Fees which consist of the Reg Fee and the Misc Fee (which is broken down into a bunch of items) both of these Enrollment Fees required for payed during enrollment. Other fees would be …

Hi! Does anyone know of any worthwhile machine language OSes to try? I just learned about them in class. It's an interesting idea in terms of speed and portability. I could only find two online, one was in Russian, and the other was MikeOS. Does anybody know any other OSes written in Assembly?? Thanks very much! -curious cat

Hi Experts! I have a question and will be grateful if you can help me out with some ideas. In an online hotel or ticket booking reservation system, normally a user is allocated a specific time to complete their registration / payments etc and during that time the system holds the reservation for that user. If the user is unable to finish their registration during that time the system times out and the user is not allowed to proceed any further. The system unholds the reservation for other users. My question is, if a user is taken to the payment …

Hi all, I have read many IT degree related posts on this discussion board regarding CIS vs. CS degrees. In a week I must hand in my application for university which starts in October. My main dilemma, similar to other users on this discussion board, is that I must choose between a CIS and CS degree. However, there is one main difference. The university I would be going to offers CIS and CSAI (Which is Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence - also known as Computer Science and Intelligent Computer Systems). Somehow I feel that the discussions on this board relating …

Hi! My name is Chris. Let me introduce myself... I have been developing quality software as a consultant for over three decades now. I work mostly in the NY metro area. My past work includes financial systems for some of the major banks and real time embedded systems, both large (NYC subway cars) and small (scanners). I specialize in highly maintainable object oriented systems. I'm glad I stumbled upon this website. It's nice to have fellow software developers and IT professionals to talk to.
