  1. In Topic: one big machine

    Posted 21 May 2013

    Liking this idea. I'm wanting to work on an AI this summer.

    Today's idea : files life expectancy.In freenet, files are deleted only when they're not used for some time, and when there's a need for space. But our machine here doesn't have RAM, so there will be a lot a files created only for short-term treatments. Short-term memory accumulation would eventually cause long-term memory deletion. That's why files should have a "time" type, with :- one hour files- one day files- one week files- forever filesOn each node there's a sort of garbage collector, with 168 lists (24x7). When a piece of file arrives on a node, it subscribes to one of these lists, according to its date of last modification and its time type. Every hour, the garbage collector deletes pieces of file that are on the "now" list.Most unused files (including "forever" files) are still deleted when there's a need for space, the way freenet does.

    This sounds like a Least Recently Used Page Replacement Policy although that is a great Idea it causes problems with things such as files that are important but only accessed once in a large time period.
    Your working set of a specific node/task may only access files when needed as the resident set can not be always used (especially in this kind of system). So you could lose some vital files relating to the task.

    I'd suggest more of a Clock method with a circular list and a bit for modified. Then only when you need more memory when say you have another request you can cycle through and find ill relevant data.

    One Major Drawback of this is having to expand the list with each node addition and with each loss assuming not all programs are going to run forever will mean compaction. This would be rather costly in resources. Maybe you have a better idea?

    Depends which versions of Outlook and Access. In Outlook 2010 choose File, Open, Import. Select to import from another application, then select Access on the next page. When you've selected the database and table you can Match Fields.


    So you could specifically match fields to the calendar? I'm going to try this soon. Is this a new feature or has it been available in all versions of excel :)/>

    Excel?! You could always do this, or something similar.


    Sorry Outlook. Mind Melting from the use of office applications :)

    Oh okay, thank you.
