caching

the storing of information in a computer system. Caching is the subject of special legal defences as a result of European Union legislation. Where an information society service is provided which consists of the transmission in a communication network of information provided by a recipient of the service, the service provider (if he otherwise would) is not liable for damages or for any other pecuniary remedy or for any criminal sanction as a result of that transmission where:
  1. (a) the information is the subject of automatic, intermediate and temporary storage where that storage is for the sole purpose of making more efficient onward transmission of the information to other recipients of the service upon their request;
  2. (b) the service provider:
    1. (i) does not modify the information
    2. (ii) complies with conditions on access to the information
    3. (iii) complies with any rules regarding the updating of the information, specified in a manner widely recognized and used by industry
    4. (iv) does not interfere with the lawful use of technology, widely recognized and used by industry, to obtain data on the use of the information
    5. (v) acts expeditiously to remove or to disable access to the information he has stored upon obtaining actual knowledge of the fact that the information at the initial source of the transmission has been removed from the network, or access to it has been disabled, or that a court or an administrative authority has ordered such removal or disablement.

They are noteworthy for 3 reasons: (1) the 3 caches we observed were located in separate trees within 100 m of the nest tree; (2) the tree caches were created or retrieved during both the incubation and nestling phases of nesting; and (3) at least 2 of the 3 tree caches were concealed with loose vegetation.
In shown table 1 r the processor management with sets of cache as one set is controlled by cache depends upon the size and location of cache lines [8].
The researchers also found that Dense Footprint Cache led to a significant improvement in "last-level cache miss ratios." Last-level cache misses occur when the processor tries to retrieve data from the cache, but the data aren't there, forcing the processor to retrieve the data from off-chip main memory.
The fourth solution is augmented cache. Cache augmented systems [7] [8] enhance the velocity of simple operations that read and write a small amount of data from big data, which are most suitable for those applications with workloads that exhibit a high read to write ratio.
When the seeker returns home, he/she should log on the website that they have found the cache and pass any comments they wish.
My favorite hunt was one where the cache was hidden in the hollow space of a steel pipe under this bridge I located.
