How to improve time consuming operations through parallelization, when multiple similar operations need to be performed
There are scenarios where the same operation needs to be performed many times. One such case is when you need to translate every SID in a user's token to a human readable name. When those operations take a significant amount of time, there is a significant potential optimization by performing them in parallel.

I am a former professional software developer (now a system admin) with an interest in everything that is about making hardware work. In the course of my work, I have programmed device drivers and services on Windows and linux.

I have written firmware for embedded devices in C and assembly language, and have designed and implemented real-time applications for testing of satellite payload equipment.

Generally, finding out how to interface hardware with software is my hobby and job.
