The quay was soon covered with the usual crowd of curious onlookers, for the arrival of a ship is always a great event in Marseilles, especially when, like the Pharaon, it has been built, rigged and laden in the city and belongs to a local shipowner. Meanwhile the vessel was approaching the harbor under topsails, jib and foresail, but so slowly and with such an air of melancholy that the onlookers, instinctively sensing misfortune, began to wonder what accident could have happened on board. However, the experienced seamen among them saw that if there had been an accident, it could not have happened to the ship herself, for she had every appearance of being under perfect control. Standing beside the pilot, who was preparing to steer the Pharaon through the narrow entrance of the harbor, was a young man who, with vigilant eyes and rapid gestures, watched every movement of the ship and repeated each of the pilot's orders. The vague anxiety hovering over the crowd affected one man so much that he could not wait until the ship entered the harbor: he leaped into a small boat and ordered the boatman to row him out to meet the Pharaon.
Part 2 of the project is to find references for your brief, organize them, make an outline for the brief, and use vi to key the outline and references into the file Brief1. Brief1 should be a plain-text file, should not have any html, will only be read by you and the instructor. When you've completed the research, edit the file Brief1 and add a nicely indented outline for your tech market brief, starting in line 3, leaving the 2nd line empty. Single-space between each entry in the outline, leaving no 'blank line' between the lines of your outline. Use spaces to make indentations to structure the outline. After the single-spaced outline, double-space to leave an empty line and list your references. If you have done this properly, your feedback below will show your topic, the first entry in your outline, and the first reference in your list.
Today's IT Infrastructure is often stated as three components: computers, storage, and networking. It's hard to say which is most important since all three are usually needed to do any real work, or entertain us. Early computers, through the '70s, were seldom networked but today's are usually networked and many mission-critical applications require networks to run. Networks were rare in computer systems from the '50s and emerged in the '70s as enterprise found it was cost-effective and enhanced control to connect branches to computers at the home office. Networks became more common in the '80s as PCs became common in the office and at home, but the networks were expensive and very limited compared to today's internet and ethernet. Today's networks are as at least as important as the computers on them. Our personal computers and phones don't do much interesting without their networks. Commerce, relationships, and entertainment depend on networking. 'The network is the computer' is one opinion, and in many cases it seems the computer is the network. Networks, computers, and storage are closely related, engineered to fit like gloves.
