comment How to make a legacy system time-zone sensitive?
In the end, this task still sits in the queue of "to-do's".

comment How to make a legacy system time-zone sensitive?
Well, I never gave a definite estimate, but made it clear that our software really needs it. It was originally assuming just a single location in its legacy times. Since then, multi-location was introduced. But locale was never considered. Just the server's date/time, with the future hopes of one day converting everything.

Ironically, I just did a search on the subject, and found this question I asked 2 years ago and forgot about :-)

Looking back at my question and your answer (while I never got around to doing this after 2 years), I see there's one critical point that should be made. When initializing a client app, it should check the local time zone, compare to server's time zone, and measure the amount of time of difference (integer number of minutes should be fine). Then, on the communication layer (between the app logic and server connection) should be another layer of date/time translation. No matter the language being used, this is a fundamental. That's the key to ensuring date/time sent to/from server persists.

We do sign the updates, no we don't verify them.

Bahhh... A Google search for "OSBK" only returns stock market results. Is this a term you invented or you found it somewhere? Nothing wrong if it's invented, I wouldn't be surprised if no term has been established for this yet.

Honestly, the intended use of this is for primarily schools, in computer oriented classrooms, where every student uses a public computer. I know such systems already exist, I was actually inspired by my teacher's abilities when I was in IT / programming classes. He could watch our screens, and if we were doing something we shouldn't, he would either message us, disable our machines, or take control. But, the actual development of this started when my boss wanted to be able to see what everyone's doing without having to physically walk around to everyone's office.

Well both, just like surveillance cameras, there will be certain triggers, such as abnormal bandwidth usage, mouse cursor moving when user is not expected there, etc. There will be many different trigger policies, but essentially can be watched in real time and recorded.

It's for an organization to keep watch over its public computers - requires install of windows services and such.

Actually funny thing is they don't have a license file in their download using the same download from your link. But I will put a link to be clear.
