  • Publication number: 20120074167
    Abstract: A package for holding a part of a two-part adhesive that is applied to a substrate includes a collapsible bag, an end cap attached at a first end of the bag, and a spout attached to a second end of the bag. As pressure is applied to the end cap, the part of the two-part adhesive is forced out of the spout.

  • Publication number: 20120042826
    Abstract: A device for applying a two-part adhesive to a substrate includes a carrier, a first pump, a second pump, at least one manifold and at least one applicator. The first pump and the second pump are mounted on the carrier and each pump has an inlet and an outlet. The first pump pumps a first part of the two-part adhesive from its inlet to its outlet, and the second pump pumps a second part of the two-part adhesive from its inlet to its outlet. The at least one applicator is configured to mix the first part with the second part to form the two-part adhesive that is discharged from the outlet of the at least one applicator onto the substrate.

  • Publication number: 20070168431
    Abstract: The present invention provides multi-file transfer via instant messaging. A method in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention includes: selecting a plurality of files to be transferred; generating a collection descriptor describing the files; sending an instant message with a collection reference that includes the collection descriptor to a recipient; and upon receipt of the instant message, the recipient selectively retrieving at least one of the files.

  • Publication number: 20070002825
    Abstract: A system for blending synchronous and asynchronous computer communication applications that determines when a user of a synchronous communication application, such as an instant messaging application, attempts to send a message to another user that is unavailable for synchronous communications, and that forwards the message from the synchronous communication application to an asynchronous communication application for delivery. The forwarded message may be an email message, and the system may operate to determine a destination electronic mail address of the destination user for inclusion in the forwarded message, and include an indication in the forwarded message that it has been forwarded from the synchronous communication application. This indication enables the asynchronous communication application to perform special processing when the receiving user retrieves the forwarded message from the asynchronous communication application.

  • Publication number: 20060168073
    Abstract: Described are a system and method for managing online communications by a user who participates in an awareness service system. A first awareness state associated with the user is published to a first participant of the awareness service system, while a second different awareness state associated with the user is published to a second participant of the awareness service system. Each published awareness state is based on a collaborative relationship between the user and the participant to which that awareness state is published.

  • Publication number: 20060036747
    Abstract: A system and method is provided that includes a communication system for handling Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) messages. The system includes a plurality of first servers for processing a first and a second message. The system also includes a plurality of second servers, which may include a mapping/correlating function for receiving the first message from a client and sending the first message to the plurality of first servers based on associating the first message with a resource. The second message received from the plurality of first servers is sent to the client based on stored routing information associated with the client, whereby the stored routing information resides within the plurality of second servers.

  • Publication number: 20050144231
    Abstract: A method and system is provided for policy driven, online meeting updates during the course of an electronic meeting. The invention defines one or more groups of participants in an electronic meeting, and assigns a unique relative priority to each group of participants. Meeting events, such as slide changes or other data that is sent to the various participants for viewing, are transmitted to the various groups in a sequence ordered by the relative priorities assigned to the groups. Alternatively, the invention provides for randomly staggering the delivery of data to the various groups. Both embodiments alleviate the scalability problems that arise for electronic meetings having large numbers of participants.

  • Publication number: 20050144258
    Abstract: The present invention facilitates associating content with a portion of a presentation to which the content relates. Methods are provided in which a presentation is received by a client computer to be sequentially presented. Content is input during the presentation, the content relating to a particular portion of the presentation. The content, and an indication of an association between the content and the portion of the presentation to which the content relates, are stored. The stored indication is transmitted for use in retrieving the portion of the presentation to which the input content relates in association with the input content.

  • Publication number: 20050138108
    Abstract: A method and system for an awareness service is provided. One or more collaborative contexts can be set for a first user within a set of users using the awareness service. One or more subsets of users can be defined within the set of users corresponding to the one or more collaborative contexts, respectively. Furthermore, a level of availability can be defined for the first user with respect to each of the subset of users. Next, an online status can be published on the awareness service for the first user. The online status can display an availability message to a second user. And, the availability message can have the highest level of availability selected from a group consisting of every level of availability defined for the first user with respect to every subset of users that includes the second user.

  • Patent number: 4714860
    Abstract: An ion generating apparatus utilizing a vacuum chamber, a cathode and an anode in the chamber. A source of electrical power produces an arc or discharge between the cathode and anode. The arc is sufficient to vaporize a portion of the cathode to form a plasma. The plasma is directed to an extractor which separates the electrons from the plasma, and accelerates the ions to produce an ion beam.
