  2. How do modern operating systems (Windows 10 and the latest versions of linux distributions) an make it difficult/impossible for (certain type of) viruses to infect the computer or to function at all? I am looking for an exhaustive information on this topic. I know that Windows 10 comes with Windows Defender. But is this the only development from the older versions of Windows? Maybe, there is some more changes about how the operating system utilizes the memory and CPU which makes things difficult for viruses? Sending a link to an article etc. can also be of help. Thank you.
  3. Hi, I am 25 years old and just beginning my master's degree. I have a job experience of almost one year. Now, I want to start investing my money, because as long as the money is in my bank account, I can't help but spend it. So, instead I want to invest my money so I won't be able to spend it on silly stuff. I will start buying securities and precious metals (silver, gold etc.) What about you? Do you sometimes think that you are wasting money because it is right available to you (as in "you can stick your card in the cash machine and withdraw money)? Did you ever consider starting investing money? Why haven't you started already?
  4. Several days ago I had a job interview. I asked the budget of the project and they did not answer the question and asked me why I was interested in. I just said I was curious, because I was curious. I could not give am more elaborate answer because I did not expect they would ask me why I was interested in learning the budget of the project. Is it OK to ask about the budget of the project in the interview? How should I have answered this question? A side question: is it fair to answer an interviewee with "why are you interested in learning this?"
  5. I am accepted into Applied Computer Science (M.Sc, namely "postgraduate") program in Germany. The classes will be taught in English in this program. The students usually come from countries outside Germany. However, the undergraduate program (B.Sc.) is in German. I have the required German qualifications. I am fluent in German. My knowledge of German is certified in multiple official exams. So, the lack of German skills cannot be a reason for denying me access to undergraduate courses. I contacted the programme coordinator (a professor) to ask if I could take undergraduate Computer Science courses, which I wasn't able to take when I was in the undergraduate programme, while studying in the master's programme. She answered me with "no". I asked why and still have no answer about why I am not allowed to. I had told her specifically that I didn't have a chance to take them during my undergraduate studies because it mean extending my studies, which is extremely costly in terms of finance and time. I studies the subjects of these undergraduate CS courses alone, on my own, after my graduation. I even took online courses for several of them. But having these courses on an university transcript would be much more beneficial than trying to convince people that I'd studied them alone and took online courses etc. Now, I have multiple questions about this situation. 1.) Is this a fair situation. What do you think? Am I getting what I deserved just because I wasn't able to take them during my undergraduate studies. 2.) Can there possibly a way out of this? For example, taking these courses from another university? If yes, is it worth it doing all that? The university classes will start in October. So, I still have time to figure out a solution for this. I'm considering to cancel my plans for going into this program because of this hard-to-justify "rules". Some of the courses I might be interested to take are Operating Systems, Computer Graphics, Computer Networks, Machine Learning.

    Getting sick before important exams XD

    Yeah, I had no choice but to take exams because I paid 260€ each Goethe exam. Crazy money for an exam, right?
  7. I'd got sick a day before the Goethe-Zertifikat B2 Prüfung back in February. Again, the day before yesterday, i.e. a day before the Goethe-Zertifikat C1 Prüfung, I got sick even though it's 35 degrees Celsius. Leave me alone, sickness. Such a bad luck. This song to my sickness:
  8. I am changing the front of my small JS project on GitHub. Should I create a new repo or a new branch? New branch seems the right way but I am lazy and there is also the possibility of messing it up (and the possible time and intellectual effort of put it into a properly working condition again). There might other disadvantages. I am not sure. What do you suggest?
  9. I am doing software development and other IT jobs for almost 1 year. I often have to look up something in documentation and research something on Google. I am wondering how common doing this type of things in other technical or engineering jobs.

    What is a link tax?
  12. No. There isn't a particular problem that I am trying to solve. I was merely interested in DNS configuration and whether or not the manual configuration of DNS in the user's local computer can be blocked.
  13. I came across a post on reddit which says that techtarget.com is "idiotic". There was no further explanation. I liked this website as I think in most of the cases the website has clear definitions or explanations for the majority of the topics and terms. What do you think about techtarget.com? Why did the guy who called it "idiotic" called it like that?

    XML-based Web Blog

    I have never seen blog developed with XML. I want to try it. The main reason could be portability.

    Sure. Relational Databases are standard but could you please elaborate on the point that it would be confusing and inefficient?
