  • Publication number: 20060062813
    Abstract: A flavor deterioration inhibitor which comprises an extract obtained by extracting Angelica keiskei, avocado, Cassia tora, Plantago asiatica L, hawthorn, fermented tea leaves or semi-fermented tea leaves with water, an organic polar solvent or a mixture thereof; and a deterioration smell inhibitor for citral or a citral-containing product. By adding the above flavor deterioration inhibitor to foods, drinks or oral care products, it is possible to inhibit the deterioration of a flavor which is easily affected by light, heat, oxygen and soon. In particular, a remarkable inhibitory effect can be achieved on deterioration due to light. By blending the above deterioration smell inhibitor with ctiral or a citral-containing product, the generation of the deterioration smell (caused by p-cresol and p-methylacetophenone) due to the passage of time or heating can be effectively inhibited.

  • Patent number: 6952793
    Abstract: Dump information acquiring and system recovery methods for a computer system using a virtual memory. The computer system has a plurality of external storage units normally used as a paging device unit for holding the contents of the virtual memory to be paged out. When fault occurs, a program for acquiring dump information outputs the contents of the main storage to a dump file. The identifier of the external storage unit set to definition information defining the external storage unit is changed from the identifier of the external storage unit to the identifier of another external storage unit. Thereafter, the computer system is restarted. The contents of the virtual memory held in the paging device unit at the time of fault output to the dump file.
