School is about to start, and for a few of us it already has. Well I was thinking it could be helpful if we used this topic to assist people with Computer related classes. So if you have any tips for people, or if you need tips, post here, k? And this is not going to be used for people to question this topic, and try to keep it mostly serious...

Some answers I had to look up, I provided links

FAT = File Allocation Table

Memory Paging = Basically pages of memory stored on disk typically in a swap file
(see: http://aips2.nrao.edu/docs/glossary/v.html#virtual_memory)

Expanded vs Extended = Good question. Hard to explain
(see: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/E/expanded_memory.html)

Linux Filesystem = ext2 filesystem is the most common. Others are in development.

NTFS = NT File System

That's pretty much the only sure thing you can say. People say that the original meaning of NT is New Technology but Microsoft doesn't say (according to a definition I just read). I have also heard it refered to NeTwork file system. You're both right, but if somebody is more right, then it would be Moffesto's teacher.

our school offers a class that will supposedly prepare you for the microsoft MOUS certification, what are your opinions on that cert, to me it seems somewhat basic and remedial and hardly worth the 75 dolla test fee. looking for opinions?

/me looks at the questions and scratches his head.

Some I can answer with confidence, others I can answer but have that nagging doubt I'm wrong, other questions annoy me by how they're asked. Nah, that's too much like school for me. No help from this corner...

...unless you pay me five dolla'
