  • Publication number: 20060224852
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for pooling storage devices in a virtual library for performing a storage operation. A storage management device determines a storage characteristic of a plurality of storage devices with respect to performing a storage operation. Based on a storage characteristic relating to performing the storage operation, the storage management device associates at least two storage devices in a virtual library. The storage management device may continuously monitor the virtual library and detect a change in storage characteristics of the storage devices. When changes in storage characteristics are detected, the storage management device may change associations of the storage device in the virtual library.

  • Patent number: 4070670
    Abstract: The invention relates to a safety control shut-off device for the heating element of a cooking stove. In one embodiment of this safety device, a burner plate of the stove is provided with several declining U-shaped grooves for collecting any spillage or overflow of water from the cooking operations. Water drops collected in the declining grooves are led through a discharge outlet, at the lowest portion of the grooves, and into a water drop detector located beneath the outlet, to complete an electrical circuit, which in turn will actuate and sound an alarm and will also actuate means for disconnecting the fuel source of the plate burner.
