A type of physical memory used in most personal computers. The term dynamic indicates that the memory must be constantly refreshed (reenergized) or it will lose its contents.

Static RAM is faster and less volatile than dynamic RAM, but it requires more power and is more expensive.

A feature supported by some mice drivers that causes the mouse resolution to depend on how fast the mouse is moved. When you move the mouse fast, the cursor moves proportionally further (the resolution is low). This is useful for jumping across the screen. Without this feature, you might need to sweep the mouse several […]
- dynamic aspect-oriented programming
Dynamic aspect-oriented programming, or dynamic AOP, using wrapper technologies, offers a way of allowing components to be individually customized and extended. Dynamic aspect-oriented programming is relatively straightforward in a trusted environment, where (with the exception of bugs) aspects can be assumed to be safe. In an untrusted public computing environment, new aspects cannot be assumed […]

- dynamic disk
Supported by Windows 2000, dynamic disk is a physical disk initialized for dynamic storage. It holds simple volumes, spanned volumes, mirrored volumes, striped volumes, and RAID-5 volumes. With a dynamic disk you can perform disk and volume management without having to restart the operating system. Upgrading a basic disk to dynamic storage will render the […]
