By Luigi Serafini

Occasionally defined because the strangest booklet on the earth, the Codex Seraphinianus is a set of artwork by way of Luigi Serafini, an Italian architect.

In case you're pondering this complete factor is entire paintings of fancy and not anything extra, somebody cracked the numerical procedure many years in the past. seems it's a version it has a base of 21, oddly sufficient. besides, the language is obviously no longer english, yet I couldn't go away that clean so it remains as is. take pleasure in!

Sample text

To improve performance and stability, an operating system’s memory manager often has a mechanism for designating which regions of memory are paged versus those that must remain resident. The memory manager typically tracks which pages are memory resident and which are not in the previously discussed paging data structures. If a thread attempts to access a page that is not resident, the hardware generates a page fault. While the hardware generates the page fault, the operating system leverages state information encoded in the paging structures to determine how to handle the fault.

Info 5 6 Part I: An Introduction to Memory Forensics North and Southbridge The CPU relies on the memory controller to manage communication with main memory. The memory controller is responsible for mediating potentially concurrent requests for system memory from the processor(s) and devices. The memory controller can be implemented on a separate chip or integrated within the processor itself. On older PCs, the CPU connected to the northbridge (memory controller hub) using the front-side-bus and the northbridge connected to main memory via the memory bus.

If a thread accesses a virtual address that has been moved to secondary storage, that data is then brought back into physical memory (typically via page fault). This interaction is represented in Figure 1-9. The actual size of the virtual address space often depends on the characteristics of the hardware and operating system. Operating systems frequently partition the range of accessible addresses into those addresses associated with the operating system and those that are private to the process.
