Build a Server Video Quiz

Overview – Build a Server Video Quiz and Answers

The video below was created with a GoPro using time-lapse video recording. It represents a first attempt at creating an online video quiz. In the video, I build a homemade server from parts. Watch the video and press pause at the prompts to answer the questions. You will have 3 seconds to press pause. Write down your answers and compare them to the answers posted below. The answers have been obfuscated, with encoding, so you want to see the answers you will need to decode them. The server in the video will serve as a department virtualization server.

Below are the answers to the computer video quiz. However the answers are encoded within the string of text. You will need to decode the string to get the answers? To do that, I recommend searching online for a website with a built in encoder and decoder web application. To correctly decode the answers, you will need to know how the answers were encoded in the first place, were they encoded in Binary, Hex, Octal, or Base64? Here is an additional tip; when copying and pasting the text make sure there are no hidden line returns.
