  • Patent number: 10421573
    Abstract: A linen hamper made of a light weight tubular frame for releasably securing a hamper bag includes an open top which can be closed by a pivotally mounted lid. The lid is connected to a foot pedal pivotally mounted on the frame, by an adjustable control rod pivotally connected to each. A closing cylinder is biased to close the lid when pressure is removed from the foot pedal. However, the control rod is adjustable to a second state in which the pivot point of its connection to the lid is aligned or is over center relative to the pivot point of the lid, and with respect to the closing force exerted by the control rod on the lid, such that the closing cylinder cannot close the lid until the lid is tapped forwardly slightly.

  • Publication number: 20060120328
    Abstract: An improved method of maintaining data throughput during handoff in a wireless communication link operating with the Mobile IP protocol is described. A first base station initially servicing a mobile subscriber unit is associated with a first Mobile IP foreign agent that is registered with the Mobile IP home agent as a first mobility binding between the subscriber unit and the home agent. When the subscriber unit issues a request to be handed off from the first base station to a second base station, a second foreign agent associated with the second base station is registered with the home agent as a simultaneous binding with the first mobility binding between the subscriber unit and the home agent. This permits both foreign agents to simultaneously receive a sequence of data packets from the home agent. Before handoff is executed, the data packet sequence routed to the second foreign agent is stored at the second base station.
