Since I was 12, I've loved tech stuff. That's when I fixed Grandpa's TV. Languages caught my attention in college. When I got my Osborne in '82, computer language, wow. I'd been doing commercial & weddings. Photography, yes, was great, but computer stuff paid better. Another language. .
Shar is a guy. Mom got too creative.
In the words of Toby Keith:
"I ain't as good as I once was
But I'm as good once as I ever was"
I think a short explanation of the "archive" attribute of a file is worthy of note. In the explanation of Full, Incremental and Differential backups, how does it know about changes?
I offer that a tangential mention of the ATTRIB of the file...Read, System, Hide & Archive, is worthy. The short story is that the OS just needs to scan files for files where the Archive bit has been set. Except for a full backup, the OS just checks the Archive bit of the files to select which ones are chosen.
My observation is only to thank you for the explanations of other parts of the OS. It's offered in good faith and to the next generation that never knew DOS 2.0<g>
Maybe the KFM will let us know when this feature will be updated. I am 4 weeks into A+. I'd like to know how much time I need to budget to complete before I start my review.
So you know, Ronnie, the jokes are bad, the info is priceless. I go back to Osborne days. You know. Learning by 'osmosis' (sic) is one thing, this course extends and confirms what I know and want to know.
Look in the mirror and believe you can. I learned CP/M and DOS by working with them. Get friends and associates who share your interests. It took me 3 years trying and working at other jobs to get work programming.
Take ANY job for which you are qualified. Do it. follow your passion. I did it and earned a good living.
For me, I was 40 when I started. A+ is my entry level certification, my proof that I know this stuff after 30+ years
We all know just a little bit about some part of this system. That is why I urge you to find connections. We learn from itPro, books and a lot from others we know.
