anyone remember what the question about the supermarket was?
It was about how client-server can help the shop

LOOl that 6 marker was pretty easy but I'm annoyed that I didn't talk about graphics card. I mentioned changing the processor, clock speed, cache memory and getting hard drive. Idk if it's right tbh, I was rushing it
it was a 6 marker so you talk about three points and elaborate. I talked about increase clock speed, more cores and increase the CPU cache. Im sure yours works too

For the question where you had to rewrite a line 5 of code (I think it was something like numberofchapters = number of pages + numberofwords - can't remember really) what was the answer?

The supermarket one was something about peer to peer and server to client networks I think
For me I just mentioned how the whole server won't crash on a server to client network

Probably, I can't remember the order, but what did you change? I changed the '+' to '*' - what did you put?

I think the correct answer was adding the chapters to the variable and using the = to change it. Eg. NumberofPages = NumberofPages + NumberofChapters

Ohh so you had to change the order the variables were in?

So I don't remember the sudocode but I have a working C++ Solotion that is mostly annotated: http://hastebin.com/apipazocaq.cpp
If ya would like an English Sudocode or Game Maker Studio version then feel free ask
(I believe it would get 6 marks)

What did you guys mention to improve the guy's computer? I talked about changing the hard drive into an SSD, increasing cache size and having a quad core processor instead of dual

I put upgrade to a CPU with more cores and a higher clockspeed.

To upgrade the CPU cache (done by getting a better CPU)

To upgrade the HDD to a higher rpm and capacity.

To invest in a new GPU with more VRAM (even though in reality vram isn't everything)

I also explained each point and ik u only needed 3 but I wanted to be 100% sure.
