Anyone know of a system that allows you to use access cards to create one time use desktop environments? Basically, user is giving access card, when they insert it into the card reader on the PC it logs in and gives them a blank install of OS, then upon removing the card the image is wiped.
I've seen it in use at an internet cafe we used to play at.
Enhanced Write Filter (or EWF) is a component of Windows XP Embedded and Windows Embedded Standard 7 which stores volume changes on another medium instead of applying them to the original volume. EWF allows the writes to be discarded or committed to the original volume later (either directly or through inaction based on the configuration). As this minimizes writes to a specified hard disk, EWF and FBWF (File-Based Write Filter) have become popular in enthusiast computing as a way of decreasing wear of solid-state drives on netbooks and CarPCs.

EWF has three main operating...

Yeah, switching about half our users from (redacted) to (new shiny redacted). (redacted) is an important software that is essential to our company and we moved over to a new shiny thing that does the same thing.
@JourneymanGeek you redacted to much, so I hardly even know what your talking about :-) If they changed software , how much "re-training" of the people using it will have to happen? slowdowns from changing method. Did they have a slow time in output need when deciding to change ?
Soo confused so did they redacts doing it, or are you redacted from discussing it?
Oh i guess i do not know what redacted even is, i thought it was similar to "retracted" redact (rî-dàkt´) verb, transitive redacted, redacting, redacts 1. To draw up or frame (a proclamation, for example). 2. To make ready for publication; edit or revise.
the 2 possible ways it can be used , are almost opposites of eachother. to plan something, or to Revise it which could include retracting :-)
Origins of the word say : English redacten, from Latin redigere, redâct-, "to drive back", which is more like retract
No I am running program from a another pc which requires the remote pc to be logged in with a specific user unfortunately if the user closes the rdp without logging off its not working but in xp its working
Unfortunately I am finding difference in 7 and XP In my program I will check whether the user is logged in. If the pc is xp it is behaving correcly eventhough he closes rdp not in 7 :( also in VNC if the user locks the screen it is causing problem
there are two PC A and B I am running a program in A which connects to B. But If an external user connects to B with rdp and closes rdp without logging off I am not able to run the program in A. But if he logs off then no problem.
@Bob if you could save up to get ~1500-2400 cuda cores, you would not likely have to/want to update it again, as that should handle most of the 3D rendering FPS type games with some AA and AF and standard 60fps. but ~1000 cores ends up more often being a compromise on the high 3d render game stuff. making a fully usable gaming card more like $300 :-(
some laptop peoples have indicated that all the laptops "overheat" throttle when a person really gets using 100% cpu on all cores. That is one reason why i think a powerfull laptop should be encased in a aluminum breifcase (size) and have some big fans that could kick in when really working it hard.
Plus a grafics bay and an extra hard drive :-) which would all fit.
then this alum breifcase should be able to survive multiple drops , have a big ass screen of the 16x10 variety, and all created by the USER building it from base parts , out of a selectable set of parts that fit in said case.
i have option to start uefi-cdrom or just cdrom , so i start uefi, and i have 300m + 100 + 128 m three system volumes for first drive. And the question is why windows sometimes does only one 350 sys partition (i tried install disk on different comps)
Well there are many thing i cant be sure of because i only use one method, but if you pre-format and layout where your going to install on windows 7 , it goes there. I use that method to not have the stupid extra partition. But i do not boot EFI method, but legasy
pics like this isunshare.com/images/article/windows-8/… show that it probably is still possible in win8 to have a All-in-One. and the largest ammount of pics show for win8 having one 350m "Efi (System partition)" and then the C:
