That's absolute rubbish. There's lots and lots of great things that come out of war. War is one of the world's greatest focusers of the mind.

I dont think so ...
lol i'd have to agree on that one . Don't think Microsoft would hand ya some free certification .

Novell has its free CNS and CLS training and certificates. It is a mix of promotion and salestraining the way I see it and I like it, despite that it does not have the value of CNE or MCSE type certifications (but hey, you get a nice logo )
Does Microsoft have such a thing as well?
Yesterday I was at the Microsoft Technet/MSDN sessions in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) talking on this subject with two Dutch Microsoft developers and although they offered a few possibilities, they didn't have the answer anymore than non-Microsoft developers.
Well, I give up (no, I don't, knowing myself). What caculation is used? Moving average? Data left to copy divided by the speed at that moment?
Will I ever find the programmer that developed that routine. Stay tuned
I think your theory is better because the time can change during the copying of a file (as opposed the right or shortly after it). You see that even better when copying a single large file of the internet (assuming that uses that same calculation).
A website filled with Microsoft developers, please answer, please
I can understand why it is impossible to give a exact time. Besides file sizes ect (which can be seen in advance) you also have a load of other factors the change during copying. If you copy and during the copy you start a program, there goes your estimate.
Strictly speaking a change in outside temperature can influence the computers speed and thus the copy-speed.
But somewhere someone decided that, although it would be an estimate, some calculation will be made.
And what that calculation is, that is what I'd love to know.
I think it is based on the copy-speed of the last completed file, based on the behavior of the estimate. But I am only halfway sure.
