The lock.gif image will still exist on the server whether you're logged in or not.

It's not about whether or not the image (or any other element, it doesn't have to be an image) exists, but rather if the request for it will be honoured by the bank server.

This scheme works for any request that is answered only when the user is logged in.

Parent posted said that 386 offered some new feature that enabled preemptive multitasking. Ie. that it was not possible in earlier CPUs.

I read that, and I wondered which feature that might have been.
It was possible on earlier CPUs: a long time ago I wrote a tiny preemptive multitasking kernel on a 8086 as an exercise.
Preemption of the running task and switching to (dispatching) another one was done in an interrupt service routine, triggered by a timer.

Windows

+ - Vista SP1 and XP SP3 - Leaked by Microsoft?->

Mariam Hollander (666) writes "Microsoft's two most awaited releases: Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista SP1. Betas for both leaked just days apart. A big coincidece or a Microsoft master plan?

NeoSmart's analysis of both the XP SP3 and Vista SP1 leaks is quite interesting: were these two builds leaked (unofficially) by Microsoft in an attempt to unofficially guage the response of the online community to these releases, fix some bugs before they officially even exist, and deliver a perfect service pack? Most importantly, is this Microsoft taking advantage of its last chance to save face and fix what has been the most-criticized version of Windows to date, before it gets out of hand?

[J]ust how likely is it that the two most valuable products still in development and without a single official release would leak to the internet just days apart? Especially when the Windows Vista build ships as a time-bombed release, it makes us wonder: Is Microsoft really in the practice of time-bombing internal development releases that only exist in the hands of people who have access to hourly builds?
