  • Patent number: 8760689
    Abstract: A computer readable device storing print control instructions to be executed by a computer communicatively connected to at least one printer via a network is provided. The print control instructions comprise at least a monitoring program. The monitoring program, when executed by the computer, causes the computer to function as: a monitoring module configured to monitor setting information in which location information of the printer on the network is written to detect writing of the location information, and a port setting module configured to, upon detection of the writing of the location information, set a logical print port having the written location information set therein as a print port to be used.

  • Patent number: 8087556
    Abstract: An electric driver includes a hook portion which is constituted by a deformable hook-like portion and a connecting portion for connecting the hook-like portion to the handle. The hook-like portion is constituted by a base portion connected to the connecting portion and a bent portion continuous to the base portion, and a front end portion continuous to the bent portion and arranged at a position substantially opposed to the base portion. The front end portion and the base portion can be proximate to and remote from each other. The connecting portion holds the hook-like portion in a direction substantially the same as a direction in which the handle extends. The hook-like portion is pivotably held on a first rotating axis center extending in substantially the same direction as the handle.
