  • Patent number: 9111261
    Abstract: A method, system, and article for management of email communication content across a computer system network. An archive of email communications is retained on storage media in communication with the network. In addition, email communication is retained on storage media in communication with a client machine in the network. To mitigate duplication of email communications, duplicate communications are replaced with a hyperlink to the archive communication. This replacement supports removal of the duplicate communication from the storage media in communication with the client machine.

  • Patent number: 8918862
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention relate to password management of one or more data storage devices. A set of passwords are employed to manage access to the storage devices, with authentication of both passwords enabling access to the subject storage device(s) for read and/or write operation privileges. The first password is known by the user and is used as an initial input string. The second password is not known by the user and is authenticated with the subject storage device(s) through BIOS and without input from the user.

  • Patent number: 8701114
    Abstract: An apparatus for dynamically redirecting a file descriptor includes an identification module, a disassociation module, and an association module. The identification module identifies a first executing process using a second executing process. The first executing process may include a file descriptor and the first executing process may be independent of the second executing process. The disassociation module disassociates the file descriptor from a first data stream using the second executing process without involvement of the first executing process. The association module associates the file descriptor with a second data stream using the second executing process without involvement of the first executing process in response to the disassociation module disassociating the file descriptor from the first data stream.

  • Patent number: 8509414
    Abstract: A target phone number previously associated with a first user is presently associated with a second user such that the target phone number is not presently associated with the first user. A caller uses a calling phone number to initiate a phone call to the target phone number. In response, it is determined whether the calling phone number is on a list of phone numbers associated with the first user. If the calling phone number is on the list of phone numbers associated with the first user, then the caller is notified that the target phone number is no longer associated with the first user. It is determined whether the caller wants to continue with the phone call, and if not, the phone call is terminated before it reaches the second user.

  • Publication number: 20130151888
    Abstract: A technique for avoiding a ping-pong effect on active-passive paths in a storage system managing one or more logical storage units (LUNs) on behalf of one or more host systems. A first path to the LUNs is designated as an active path and a second path to the LUNs is designated as a passive path. The first path is also designated as a preferred path to the LUNs. In response to a path failure in which a host system cannot access the LUNs on the first path, a failover operation is implemented wherein the second path is designated as the active path and the first path is designated as the passive path. The designation of the first path as the preferred path to the LUNs is not changed. Subsequent failback operations are conditionally inhibited so that only the failover host that initiated the failover is permitted to initiate a failback.

  • Publication number: 20130055108
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention relate to an on-line communication tool. A set of windows are employed to manage threads of communication. A first window maintains a list of threads available for discussion during the communication. A second window maintains a continuous log of the communication, and functions in a read-only mode. A third window maintains a read-write channel for a thread of the communication, and functions in a read-write mode. One or more threads may be selected from the first window, with each thread selection opening a separate third window. Text pertaining to a specific thread of the communication may be entered into the specific third window and populated to the continuous log of the second window.

  • Publication number: 20120323481
    Abstract: In a method for selecting a parking lot exit, a computer receives geographic coordinates of a first parking exit of a parking facility. The computer receives geographic coordinates of a second parking exit of the parking facility. The computer determines a first route from the first parking exit to a destination, using the geographic coordinates of the first parking exit. The computer determines a second route from the second parking exit to the destination, using the geographic coordinates of the second parking exit. The computer selects one of the first parking exit and the second parking exit based on the first route and the second route.
