  • Publication number: 20060166346
    Abstract: The present invention provides a stable complex microbial system, which simultaneously decomposes a plurality of organic contaminants even under a polluted environment with these contaminants and permits more effective decomposition of persistent organic contaminants such as PCNB and simazine. A support for holding a complexed enrichment of degrading bacteria, which contains a porous material provided as a support on which degrading bacteria A capable of degrading at least one organic contaminant and degrading bacteria B capable of degrading another organic contaminant are enriched, is produced. The degrading bacteria A may be a PCNB-degrading bacteria, particularly degrading bacteria containing degrading bacteria having part or all of the bacteriological characteristics of Nocardioides sp. PD653 and the degrading bacteria B may be degrading bacteria containing degrading bacteria having part or all of the bacteriological characteristics of ?-Proteobacteria CDB21.

  • Patent number: 5812821
    Abstract: Disclosed is a data processing apparatus that has two or more internal SCSI devices, to include a SCSI controller, that can also accommodate eternal SCSI devices via a port connector and that can manage the ID numbers (identification numbers) of the internal SCSI devices separately from all the other SCSI devices without requiring any action by a user; and a method for controlling such a data processing apparatus. According to the present invention, ID numbers can be written into internal SCSI devices. ID numbers that do not collide with the ID numbers of the externally connected SCSI devices are assigned to the respective internal SCSI devices. The system can automatically write the ID numbers during the booting process or when the system configuration is physically changed. Even when there are SCSI hard disk drives installed both inside and outside the system, the ID numbers of the SCSI hard disk drives that are internally positioned can be read so that the internal SCSI hard disk drives can be designated.

  • Patent number: 5497490
    Abstract: A computer unit and multiple I/O adapter units are interconnectable in a variety of different plug attachment configurations which may be frequently altered in normal use of the system. An arrangement is provided for automatically initializing adapter units which are currently connected to the computer unit to operating states uniquely suited to the current configuration of connections. In the arrangement, non-volatile storage means retentively stores multiple sets of configuration state information, each set corresponding to a different configuration of connections between the adapter units and the computer unit. Means operating during each initialization of the system detects identities (ID's) of adapter units currently connected to the computer unit, and compares them to ID's associatively stored with the configuration state information.
