The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
We have some big files that need to be sent from a remote computer to the company server each day.
The work computer has a 10 MB DSL connection and the server has an optical fiber (50MB) connection.
The remote worker is not tech savvy.
I can imagine three ways of handling that:
1. Files stored in the local computer and send them each day to the remote server (via a scheduled backup that will run automatically at a certain hour). The computer user can shut the computer down at the evening.
2. Files stored in the local computer synchronized automatically using a kind of "Google Drive" that the server has natively included.
3. Files in the remote server and access them remotely via WebDAV or similar.
I don't have a feel for PC prices in the UK, but I had a look at their Intel based machines. I am convinced you could get a Dell or HP in the US with comparable performance at a considerably lower price.
Unless you need something heavily customized, I don't see that they are such great bargains.
In Israel, you can get an i7-6700 based system with 16GB RAM, a 2TB HDD, and a DVD burner from Dell for less than UKP 1,000 (including Win10 Pro). I can't imagine that computers are that much more expensive in the UK.
EDIT: should have answered the OP
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
