    Packet Splitting Networking

    I am not sure if you are right about that. It just isn't a conventional use case. There is some applications available on GitHub that do stuff similar to this for example https://github.com/gistrec/File-Broadcaster You can assume that you have complete access to the client. For example you could start a service to listen for the download on all clients. As for lost packets surely the client can keep track of where it loses packets and ask the sender to resend? Or the sender can loop through the download several times.

    Packet Splitting Networking

    I would like to use existing software if possible. If not I could write it. I am using windows server 2012 as the switch which will be connected to many machines (not necessarily windows) on the same network. There are no users. It is an automated process involving downloading a large (12GB) zip file containing windows driver tests to about 40 computers a process which normally would take several hours from the windows assessment services server rig. Since the server is also the switch I would like to try using https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadcasting_(networking) or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicast But most usages of these tend to be for things other than downloading a file such as sms/video emergency broadcasting

    Packet Splitting Networking

    Is there an existing application/hardware that will allow a single computer to send duplicate network traffic to multiple computers. For example, say I want many computers to download the same update file?
  4. Yeah I did. My dad had all the books at home.
  5. I liked the books written by Robert Jordan but thought that Brandon Sanderson's continuation was hard to follow. I can't help thinking what Jordan would have written.

    3-Sat is in P

    3-Sat is basically a Boolean expression written as an and of 3 or statements. (a!bc) and (!a!bc) and (!ab!c) and (!cde) and (!bc!d) 010**** 110**** 101**** **100** *010*** (aaa) and (!a!a!a) 0******* 1******* It can be solved in deterministic polynomial time by performing a bitwise unique match on FALSE values stored in an array. For example (a or !b or c) is only false for (010). We add the false values to an ordered array so a,b,c etc and simply do a bitwise check to see if the opposite already exists in the array, so for 010 that would be 101. If the opposite already exists then the Boolean expression is unsatisfiable. This would need to iterate over O(n) values in the worst case on a Single Tape Deterministic Turing machine. The expression is also unsatisfiable if the length of the array is >= 2n/2. Therefore the worst case runtime can never reach the exponential 2n I am unsure whether there is any exceptions to the rule that would make this not work?
  7. If an algorithm runs say SAT runs in polynomial time on a deterministic multi-track Turing machine through the use of parallelization with 2^n tapes is the algorithm in P?

    Windproof Umbrella

    They aren't cheap but then I must have bought at least 1 umbrella a month this year so if it lasts then it would pay for itself. If not... then it is a waste of money. All weather gear is always an option but I need it for my work commute and it is not always appropriate for an office job (I suppose I could change when I get to work)

    Windproof Umbrella

    There are really strong winds where I am from and they tend to destroy basically every umbrella I have bought including some from amazon that were supposedly rated for 60mph winds. All the big supermarket umbrellas Tesco/Dunnes etc don't last me a day. Is there anywhere I can buy an exceptionally windproof umbrella?

    How do I improve my reputation?

    I should add not asking too many questions, religious topics tend to get bad rep (since they tend to be opinionated) and I'm sure some of the questions you just posted can easily be googled.

    How do I improve my reputation?

    I find a lot of people here tend to be older so see simple questions as trolling, before asking a question see if you can google it first. Also try not having a strong opinion on things and keep your answers relevant to the topic question and not just reply to somebody else's comment.

    Windows assessment and deployment toolkit tutorials

    Still not finding anything except videos to download it. https://youtu.be/oLG6AI6iQPE Looking for this specifically https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/test/assessments/windows-assessment-services-technical-reference Okay I found a video for the windows assessment client It still doesn't cover windows assessment services though but it is the most helpful video I have found so far.
  14. I am looking for windows assessment and deployment toolkit video tutorials. I have been able to find some videos on installing it but none that show how to use it.
