This essay Background: To determine whether or not WinNT 4.0 has a total of 1128 words and 7 pages.
Background: To determine whether or not WinNT 4.0 is within year 2000 compliance. From the outlined testing procedures found in the \'YEAR 2000 Testing memo\', it was decided that since WinNT is an OS it is \'date sensitive\'. From this, all outlined tests were performed. The data gathered is represented in table form.
Equipment: To test, a Compaq Prolinea 590 was used with the latest bios installed (04/09/97). The machine had WINNT 4.0 installed with Service Pack 3.0 patch for the OS.
Testing Procedure: To determine if Windows NT 4.0 would roll to the appropriate date, the control panel applet DATE&TIME(d&t) was used to change the dates. The machine d&t were set to the day before each date outlined in the memo. The machine date was changed to a control time of 11:59:45 PM in each case. The machine date was then allowed to roll to the date in question. The machine d&t was then reset to the previous date and control time. This time the machine was rebooted while the time was rolling to the date in question.
In each case, after the time rolled, the date was checked to find the correct date. WinNT Explorer was then opened and a file in the \'c:winnt\' directory was changed to check whether or not a saved file corresponded with the correct date. The data from these tests is defined in the following table.
\'Data & Time Tested\' column are the Control values found in the memo. Both \'Post Test Date\' columns are the dates found in each instance after the date rolled from the \'Date&Time Tested\' column to the date in question. The \'Post Explorer check\' was tested to see if the machine reported the right time. \'Post modification dates\' are file dates after the file was saved to check the corresponding date. In each test, no problems with the d&t were encountered.
Results: The testing actually caused several different things to happen to the OS. Whenever I rolled the date forward, The following directories changed the date associated with them:
C:Winnt, C:WinntSystem32, C:WinntFonts, C:Temp.
This seemed strange because the machine time stamp wouldn\'t roll back when the time was changed backwards, but this isn\'t part of the test procedure. When the time actually changes the date will roll forward and stay. It won\'t roll backwards. I don\'t know if this affects the testing but it would be totally impossible to rebuild the machine each time the test was run. This would take many hours to do and it probably won\'t affect the data anyway.
Before I started testing, I looked on the Internet to see what Microsoft said about WinNT 4.0 and the y2k problem. On this site, there are links to all Microsoft Products. For WinNT 4.0, there were 4 problems Microsoft listed as known problems. They are as follows:
1. When you set an account to expire on Feb 29,2000, User manager displays the following error.
\'February only has 28 days in this year\'. Taken from document Q183125 from Microsoft Tech support for Year 2000
2. Windows NT might skip a day. When rolling to new dates NT may skip several days ahead. Taken from document Q180122 from Microsoft Tech support for Year 2000
3. When you use the Winnt Find Files or folders feature, the 2-digit abbreviation of the year doesn\'t appear correctly. For example, if the year is set to 2001, when you click on the DATE MODIFIED tab on the Find: ALL files dialog box, the two digit abbreviation of the year appears as :1, rather that 01. Taken from document Q183123 from Microsoft Tech support for Year 2000.
4. When you define a custom property to include a date type in the Microsoft Office the year may not appear correctly. For example, in Word, if you click properties on the file menu, click the custom tab, click date in the type field, enter a value of 01/01/01, and then click add, the date appears as 01/01/1901 rather that 01/01/2001. Taken from document Q183125 from Microsoft tech support for Year 2000
(These documents are included with this report)
In each case, Microsoft states that if you are having these problems, installation the next service release should fix these problems although, this release isn\'t available yet. During testing, I checked for 2of 4 problems and in each

Slave LifeSlave Life The warm climate, boundless fields of fertile soil, long growing seasons, and numerous waterways provided favorable conditions for farming plantations in the South (Foster). The richness of the South depended on the productivity of the plantations (Katz 3-5). With the invention of the cotton gin, expansion of the country occurred. This called for the spread of slavery (Foster). Slaves, owned by one in four families, were controlled from birth to death by their white owners. Black men,

The cold, muddy, and barren moors separate the two households. Each house stands alone, in the midst of the dreary land, but the atmospheres of the two estates are quite different. This difference helps explain the personalities and bond of Cathy and Heathcliff.

The case against Microsoft is based not just on baThe case against Microsoft is based not just on bad economics, but on a fundamental misunderstanding of government\'s decision-making role when it comes to market operations. This misunderstanding has led to an attack on one of the US’s most successful firms. It is difficult to measure consumer harms, much less harms that may only occur in the future. A common misconception about antitrust law is that its purpose is to ensure fair competition. That\'s not true; antitrust law\'s purpose is to pro

I know the assignment was to deal with a certain aI know the assignment was to deal with a certain aspect of terrorism, but I can\'t seem to keep my opinions based on one kind without comparing it to other acts of terrorism. Terrorism is defined in Webster\'s New World Dictionary as, to use force or threats to intimidate, etc., especially as a political policy. Intimidate is similarly defined as, to make afraid, as with threats. Threats is a common word used in both definitions and when people are threatened, they feel terror therefore they are
