  • Patent number: 6587858
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling the dissemination of data from a repository based on the substitution of content contained within a generated response. The systems and methods are used by the repository to allow for the transfer of data that is not known or anticipated until the time of an access. For each access whose intent is to provide data to the repository or to retrieve variable data held by the repository, the repository uses the systems and methods to manage novel information structures whose purpose is to facilitate the substitution of the variable portions of content and to apply a privilege value to the portions that are variable. Using the concept of a “notational fragment”, the systems and methods are capable of assembling a variable result that has interaction with a data source.

  • Patent number: 6466983
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling the dissemination of data from a repository based on request mechanisms that are transparent to the requestor and the connection conveying the requests. The systems and methods are used by the repository to enforce one or more rule sets that implement varying levels of access privilege created by the repository designer. For each user requesting access to privileged data, the repository uses the systems and methods to manage novel information structures whose purpose is to apply the rule sets to the requestor's session. By incorporating into each request, a set of values herein named a “forresta” and a “destination”, the systems and methods exercise control over data access, assemblage and presentation. In addition, the systems and methods provide that clients require no enhancements to well-known methods or systems used to facilitate communications with repositories employing this invention.

  • Patent number: 4601559
    Abstract: The slide projector (4) for single-slide, lap-dissolve or stereo projection, which works on the gravity feed principle, is designed for operation with linear slide trays (1, 2) divided into compartments. At the top, it has either two receptacles for slide-tray covers (2, 5) or one receptacle (4g) and one cover (4h) integral with the housing of the projector. When being placed on the projector, the slide tray is automatically unlocked, so that the housing of the tray becomes shiftable. Switching means ensure that the projector cannot operate until the slide tray is properly positioned. The projector also has a variable electronic light intensity control facility. It initiates no projection when a tray compartment is empty.The slide tray (1, 2) is so designed that slides are loaded into the housing (1) of the tray from above in an upright and laterally correct image position; the housing (1) is then closed with the cover (2). During projection, the cover forms the bottom of the slide tray.

  • Patent number: 4056343
    Abstract: The apparatus for producing raised markings on a cable's plastic jacket disclosed provides for at least one drum shaped marking member, which may be driven by the cable itself or, if there are a pair of such drums, at least one is driven by means of a stepper motor which is controlled synchronously with the cable take-off speed. The drums are vertically adjustable and mounted on swivel arms carried on a carriage. Pneumatic means are employed to force the drum or drums against the moving cable with a predetermined pressure. Depressions corresponding to the desired markings are formed in the circumferential surface of the drum. As the drum or drums rotate a powder filled container or filling head is pressed against them so that powder is picked up in the depressions and carried by the drums into contact with the cable. When the powder filled depression area of the drum contacts the cable, which is still hot, the powder will fuse with the material of the cable's jacket and form a raised marking.

  • Patent number: 4053729
    Abstract: This invention relates to a chatter-free arrangement of masses especially for such a chatter-proof arrangement in electrical switches and mechanical interrupters of current of all kinds. The arrangement of masses disclosed is constructed so that the kinetic energy of the two masses of pushing partners being pushed is absorbed by additional damping masses arranged in the direction of the push. The mass of the following mass or masses, in the direction pointing away from the two primary masses of the pushing partners is constructed to that the additional and successive mass or masses is decreasing and in that same direction the elasticity and the energy loss factor and, or the mobility of the additional masses is increasing. Such decreasing masses permit lighter chatter-free constructions and permits not only stationary parts but also moving parts to be provided with chatter-free arrangements, especially for example in electrical contacts.
