I just recently conducted an assessment at Ocper, Inc. After consulting with the president of company, it has been established that an upgrade is immensely needed for company’s current and future progress. Currently, the company has 20 Windows peer-to-peer client computers that connected by coaxial cable, in addition to projecting the company’s prospective doubling in size over the next two years. The president was informed that an upgrade to the company’s network will be feasible, especially if she is projecting company growth. Though she was reluctant in the possibility of changes taking place in the company, I asked the president to allow me to explain how effective the changes will be long-term. I noticed that the company has an effective network operating system (NOS); therefore, the network can be changed to a client/server network/local area network (LAN). On the client/server network there are several advantages: 1. Client/server network has hierarchical power. 2. Network has centralized control. 3. There is a proper management of files because they are stored at the same place; files are easier to find. 4. Network has Back-up/Recovery: It is easy to back-up data as it’s stored on server. And, in case of breakdown if data is lost, it could be recovered easily and efficiently. 5. Changes to network can be made easily by upgrading server. 6. Server can be accessed remotely. All changes are made only in central computer on which server database exists. 7. Security-Rules and access rights can be defined at the time server is set up.
As earlier mentioned, the Ocper, Inc. currently uses coaxial cable as the transmission. medium. The only noticeable benefit of coaxial cabling is that it has lower attenuation at lower frequencies. The Cat 6e (Enhanced Category 6) shielded twisted pair

    with a click of the mouse. This makes it easy for the System Administrator to keep all the systems running efficiently. Now let’s talk about the wiring (Dean, 2010). I would suggest switching from the coaxial cable to an unshielded twisted pair preferably Cat 5. This cable is a very inexpensive alternative and has the capabilities of being used on your existing phone systems as well. As far as speed goes you will be losing a little bit of the transfer speed, but it won’t be that noticeable…

Not that one man had the courage to be evil, but that millions had not the courage to be good.” Many Germans did not agree with Adolf Hitler’s outlandish ideas, but were not courageous enough to stand against him. In his documentary The Twisted Cross, director Donald Hyatt shows the incredible influence that Hitler had on…

The poem presents us with five “cumbersome” ways to kill a man and guides us through each way in a way which is like a “twisted cookbook” and leaves us with a dark reflection on mankind’s future. In the poem, Brock presents us with the story of death, and instructions for killing throughout the ages, starting with the crucifixion of Jesus, moving on to medieval jousting…
