  • Publication number: 20210297526
    Abstract: The present subject matter relates to one or more devices systems and/or methods for generating sealing current at a customer's premises or residence and injecting the sealing current into a DSL service provider's telephone cables to prevent the oxidation or corrosion of wire splices or connections on the telephone cables transporting DSL services. A cable pair stabilizer unit is connected at the customer's premises or residence, between the service provider's telephone cables and the customer's residential gateway/modem. The cable pair stabilizer unit comprises circuitry for generating the sealing current and for injecting the sealing current into the service provider's telephone cables transporting DSL services. The cable pair stabilizer unit may be combined with an AC/DC power supply adapter as a single, integrated device. The cable pair stabilizer unit may alternatively be combined with or inside of the Residential Gateway as a single, integrated device.

  • Patent number: 11010151
    Abstract: A method and system for processing a plurality of unordered software patches for one or more computer readable software programs configured to be executed in a computer system. The unordered software patches are obtained. The unordered software patches include relationship information for defining a relationship the unordered software patches have with a second software patch. For each unordered software patch, the relationship information of the unordered software patch is analyzed to determine the relationship the unordered software patch has with the second software patch. An entry for each unordered software patch is stored in a relationship data store in the data processing system or computer system. The entry comprises dependency data representative of the determined relationship the unordered software patch has with the second software patch. The unordered software patches are ordered based on the dependency data in the relationship data store.

  • Publication number: 20210140985
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods for determining the presence of a coagulation inhibitor in a patient. A patient curve associated with the patient sample and having a patient slope (Ps) and a a standard curve associated with a control sample and having a control slope (Cs) are generated, and the Ps and the Cs are compared to obtain a Ps/Cs parallelism ratio. A Ps/Cs parallelism ratio of less than a predetermined ratio is indicative of presence of a coagulation inhibitor in the patient sample.

  • Publication number: 20200097385
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes identifying a bad fix to a software product, where the software product includes a plurality of parts, and where the bad fix presents an error into a first part. A plurality of fixes to the software product, including the bad fix, are representable by a dependency graph indicating dependencies among the plurality of fixes. The dependency graph is recursively traversed to identify a subset of fixes that are dependent on the bad fix, where each fix in the subset of fixes includes a respective set of parts, and to add a reference to a respective most recent version of each part of each fix in the subset of fixes to a parts datastore. A remedial part and each part referenced in the parts datastore are packaged into a remedial fix, where the remedial part includes a correction to the error in the first part.
