    Is a client/server system the same as a client/server network?

    Thank you!!

    Have attached some of my questions. There are no answers though.
    Just make sure you know green screen, blockchain and GDPR really well as they are all specifics given in the text.
    Some of the page references in my questions refer to the Nelson Thornes textbook.

    Sorry, no, that is the point of the questions. My students research and write the answers themselves - I don't do it for them.

    I've been scouring the web, and I'm struggling to find anything on "green screen" banking, only details about blue screen and gray screen, which seem to be about commodities.

    If you're not willing to give me the answer, could you please point me in the right direction with either research or what I should be searching. thanks.

    I don't know anything about banking, but as far as computing is concerned, 'green screen' usually means the old monochrome CRT computer displays which show green text on a black background. Think of the kinds of screens you'd have on computers in the 1970s and early 80s which use green text-based displays and keyboard input with text-based menus, etc.

    I'm not sure what that has to do with banking really, except that banks used to have a lot of systems like that - before personal computers were a thing and people didn't usually see those kinds of computers outside of universities, government buildings and large wealthy corporations.

    It's not a case of not being willing to give you the answer - I haven't done them myself yet and I am so strapped for time with all the other million things that need doing as a teacher lol!!

    Previous poster is correct. Look on google images for "green screen application" this will give you an idea of what the screens and applications used to look like. Many companies still have these systems - called "legacy systems" because they are old but very reliable and do exactly what they should - they rarely fail. They are hard to change so new systems just get tagged on top and they continue to be used.

    I think the questions are more likely to be around what legacy systems are and how this new bank doesn't have any so don't have those kind of problems.

    Hope this helps a little

    Oh, so it's just a phrase of expression, not anything that's relatively important. Cheers! Even generally, I was only getting hits for obvious green screen technology.

    On re-read, I really sound accusatory in my initial post, that wasn't my intent! I appreciate the stuff you've put out, and appreciate you pointing me in in the right direction.

    Cheers!

    Unfortunately this spec has been running since 2008 so the textbooks are really old. Nelson Thornes is just an alternative to the one you have - I have both and use material from both.

    Make sure you cover the pre-release material in a lot of detail, and other things you should really research in addition to the books are BYOD, cloud computing, things that have been happening in the real world like cyber attacks, the growth of cryptocurrencies etc.

    As it's the last year of the spec I was kind of hoping they would use some of the questions from previous years without too many changes - last years paper was quite a good one. Practice all the papers, compare against mark schemes (where they actually suggest an answer) and read around the subject a bit.

    Have a look at:
    • Replication and Mirroring
    • Distributed Databases / Distributed services
    • Cloud hosting / Cloud Storage

    Also don't forget
    • Prevention: e.g. surge protection, fire prevention, uninterruptable power, RAID, antivirus, firewalls
    • Monitoring: e.g. sending e-mails or alarms when a system fails
    • Disaster recovery planning: e.g. who does what when something happens. Automatic failover.
