  • Patent number: 8140655
    Abstract: A computing architecture and method which provides application software or hardware the ability to dynamically allocate subsystem resources to construct computing enclaves. The architecture manages the configuration of and controls access to the subsystem resources. Subsystem resources are assigned to enclaves and additional subsystem resources are able to be added or removed as needs fluctuate. Removed subsystem resources are sanitized and returned to a resource pool, and are available for allocation. This computing architecture and method allows the creation of dynamic computing systems.

  • Patent number: 5734719
    Abstract: A digital data on-demand turnkey system at a customer premise wherein N number of sewers provide for 100% of content distribution of remotely stored digitized information, which information may be previewed in real-time, and product incorporating selected digitized information can be manufactured on-site and within a short response time to a customer's request at a point of sale location. In a retail environment customers, at a point-of-sale location are able to exhaustively search and preview the content database using graphics-based touch screens at consumer kiosks. Previews including audio and video segments are made available. Prompting screens allow customers to make purchasing decisions by stipulating content which is available from any number of categories of subject matter including music.

  • Patent number: 5182941
    Abstract: A method of detecting leaks through a surface using a flexible film releasably bonded to the surface. Surfaces of pressurized fluid holding structures having a large number of surface penetrations, such as rivets, tend to have problems with leaks. Leaks at these penetrations are detected by forming a continuous film, typically a polymer film over the surface of a closed structure, pressurizing the structure with a suitable fluid and detecting leaks by the bubbles that form in the film. Generally, the bubbles ar reaily apparent due to tint changes in the film areas no longer in contact with the structure surface. Bubbles are also easily detected by feel. The film is removed around bubbles and the leaking penetration is repaired. Those areas can again be coated with the film and the structure repressurized to detect any remaining leaks. This test can be repeated until all leaks are eliminated. The film is then stripped from the surface and the structure is ready for cleaning use or further processing.
