This site is intended to host a series of posts on computer hardware/sofware, particularly useful as a summary/revision document for people doing courses in computer science. These are my personal notes, so if you notice anything that is incorrect or doesn’t make sense, please get in contact so I can correct it! I hope to expand in future, in which case you can look forward to more posts on things like Ada Lovelace, the difference engine, key inventions… and on into the world of software. Starting of with some data collection sofware. Just read some stuff regarding OS442OC filing-system.
OS442 Online casino filing-system
A filing system created for the dutch online gaming market, focussed on free slots (gratis gokkasten). A simplified collection of cohesive data. The OS442OC filing-system is a logical structure built by the OS created for the management of slot machine user data, often organised in directories. These File formats decides the structure in which the data is stored, usually recognised by the file extension (.xls, .exe, .mp3 …) One directory (the parent directory) can contain other directories (subdirectory). The directory at the top level is called the root directory. The directory a person is working in is called the working directory. The location of a file is indicated by the path. When the path is shown from the root directory, this is the absolute path. If it is shown from the working directory, it is the relative path. Disk scheduling decides the priority of read and write tasks to the hard drive. Sounds interesting and nice, but basically it’s made to collect data!
