  • Patent number: 10114905
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for providing a plurality of security schemes and allowing a particular user of a computer system from among a plurality of users of the computer system to select a security scheme to be associated with the user independent of the security scheme selected by a remainder of the plurality of users of the computer system, thereby providing user customizable security to the computer system. At least one of the security schemes is comparatively more secure than another. Selections of security schemes are included with account information of the particular user and are used in connection with authorizing the particular user to use the computer system. First and second users can each select different security schemes based on their personal preferred balance between convenience and security and have their respective access to the computer system managed in relation to the selections included with their respective accounts.

  • Publication number: 20160246893
    Abstract: Publishing content in a web-viewable format to make the content accessible over a network to one or more requestors at respective computers includes responding to a print operation initiated by a program in regard to the content to be published, the print operation being directed by a virtual printer driver to a system having one or more microprocessors. Using code executing in the or more microprocessors, content is received from the program, which can be independent of the system, the content is converted into a web viewable format, and the converted content is stored in a storage area. The converted content is thereafter made accessible for viewing in the web-viewable format to the one or more requestors at respective computers over the network. In further aspects, the storage area can comprise a third-party storage area for which authentication need be provided to allow storage of the content.

  • Publication number: 20150081820
    Abstract: Publishing of a message that is free of prohibited or restricted content by a message publishing system that is provided with criteria concerning acceptable content. A message is received at the message publishing system, is processed by a processor to detect any prohibited or restricted items in the message which are outside of the criteria of the acceptable content, and the prohibited or restricted content is removed in response to the detection of the prohibited or restricted items in the message. Either the message or only a remainder of the message which is free of the prohibited or restricted content is published in accordance with the criteria provided to the message publishing system.

  • Patent number: 8327025
    Abstract: Publishing of a message divided into two portions, one portion not requiring computer recognition of it's content while another portion requires recognition of it's content. The non-recognized portion is published as-is with minimal processing by the system due to it being suited for easy human understanding of that respective portion (e.g., hand-written text). The recognized portion is processed by optical recognition software so that the output of the recognition process is an accurate representation of that information portion. The portion requiring recognition can be a critical portion such as in the case of the price for a food item on a daily specials menu, as one non-limiting example. In further aspects, messages can be published on a time and date scheduled basis.

  • Patent number: 7698372
    Abstract: A message publishing system processes a message from a sender in a first format and comprises a central processor, a sender account, a storage area to store at least a portion of the message, and software executing to configure the central processor. The processor identifies the sender as an authorized sender based on information associated with the message in comparison to data in the sender account, wherein the identification is dependent upon the first format, and publishes the portion of the message so as to be viewable only if the sender has been identified as an authorized sender. The software can further configure the processor to allow a requester to subscribe to receive new messages from one or more senders including the identified sender; and send a copy of a new message from the identified sender to one or more notification devices associated with the subscribed requestor.

  • Patent number: 7689658
    Abstract: Publishing messages over a network includes receiving a message from a sender in a first format, identifying the sender of the message as an authorized sender based on information associated with the message in comparison to data in a sender account using software executing in a central processor, wherein the identifying step is dependent on the first format of the message, receiving a request for at least the portion of the message from a requester, and publishing at least the portion of the message to the requestor over the network only if the software has identified the sender as an authorized sender. The requester can subscribe to receive new messages from one or more senders including the identified sender, and a copy of any new messages from the identified sender can be sent to one or more notification devices associated with the subscribed requestor.
