  • Patent number: 6934890
    Abstract: Error code indexing and interpretation apparatus (10) includes a first device (12) containing operating error codes (14) and configured to send an error code (14) on the occasion of a first device (12) operating error. A second device (16) is connected to the first device (12) and contains first device parameters (28). Second device (16) sends and receives information and is configured to join the error code (14) with the device parameters (28) and to alert a user upon receipt of an error code (14) from first device (12). A device error code database (30) is connected to the second device (16) for storing an index of device error codes (34) and associated error code correction procedures (36). Device error code database (30) is configured to display an associated error code correction procedure (36) upon the receipt of an error code (14) joined with the device parameters (28).

  • Patent number: 6865696
    Abstract: An enduser diagnostic system or “system” (10) for computer-based error interpretation includes a network addressable device (33), a computer-based system (20), and an inspector (40). The network addressable device (33) provides solutions for error problems associated with the computer-based system (20). The computer-based system (20) includes a system registry (26) for storing information required for configuring software and hardware components that define the computer-based system (20). The inspector (40) is a software component linked with the system registry (26) and the network addressable device (33). The inspector (40) compiles examination data by accessing the computer-based system (20) including the system registry (26). By generating examination data, the inspector (40) quickly and accurately provides information, including real-time information, required for assisting the network addressable device (33) with supplying a solution to the error.

  • Patent number: 6782356
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a computer executes a translation program for translating a phrase from a first language to a second language. Initially, the executing program receives the phrase to be translated. It then identifies in the phrase a translatable portion thereof. Next, it locates from a hierarchally-ordered expanded list of translation pairs, which each have equivalent first-language and second-language chunks, a pair having a first-language chunk that most closely matches the translatable portion with att least a part of the translatable portion being identical to the located first-language chunk. Finally, the executing program replaces at least a part of the translatable portion with the second-language chunk from the located translation pair. In this way, the executing program at least partially (if not completely) automatically translates the input phrase from the first language to the second language.

  • Patent number: 6553310
    Abstract: An apparatus for, and a method of, customizing an Internet session to the current location of the user which can, through a variety of methods, identify a user's specific location and once the specific location is determined, customize Internet information for the user's specific location. The location can be determined through a GPS device, user input or calculation and application of location parameters from a known position or similar methods. The customized Internet information can be accessed via, for example, CDPD, and user specific queries can be addressed through Internet search capabilities coupled with local processing.

  • Publication number: 20020169868
    Abstract: A server architecture remotely monitors client page render times by approximating the time lapse from when a hyperlink is first activated to request a web page to when the web page is rendered on the requesting client machine. When the server receives a request, it locates or generates the appropriate page and attaches a script with the current time stamp. A session ID is generated to identify the client-server session associated with the time stamp. The stamped page is returned to the client and rendered. The script is executed to return the time stamp to the server. The server measures the time lapse between the returned time stamp and the current time to derive a close approximation of client page render time. To derive the average time-to-render on a per user basis, multiple client page render times that share a common session ID are collected and averaged.
