  • Publication number: 20030135515
    Abstract: According to the present invention, a plurality of new tuple-space operators is provided for enhancing the capability of tuple spaces to provide fine-grained control of presence and location systems. New Deactivate/Activate and Mass Timer Extension operators may be applied simultaneously to large numbers of tuples and anti-tuples, thereby improving system responsiveness. A new Query operator greatly increases the ability of presence and location systems to guarantee that private information in the tuple space remains private.

  • Publication number: 20020117534
    Abstract: An apparatus is disclosed for endoscopic application of surgical staples adapted to attach surgical mesh to body tissue in laparoscopic hernia surgery. The apparatus includes a frame, and a generally elongated endoscopic section connected to the frame and extending distally therefrom. A staple storage cartridge is removably supported on a pivotal support system at the distal end portion of the endoscopic section with each staple being configured and adapted to attach the mesh to the body tissue. An elongated pusher system formed of several assembled components and extending from the frame to the endoscopic section is provided for individually advancing at least one staple at a time distally for positioning adjacent the surgical mesh and the body tissue. The pusher system also includes a trigger system to actuate the pusher.

  • Patent number: 6298455
    Abstract: In a publish/subscribe data processing broker network having a plurality of broker data processing apparatuses, each of which has an input for receiving published messages directly from a publisher application and/or receiving subscription data directly from a subscriber application, and each of which having a means for receiving a published message on a first topic and assigning a broker-specific sequence number to the received message; a first broker apparatus has: a software unit for determining a failure of a neighboring broker apparatus which has provided published messages on the first topic to the first broker apparatus; and a software unit for sending historic resubscriptions with respect to the first topic to each antecedent broker apparatus of the failed neighboring broker apparatus by using the broker-specific sequence number corresponding to each antecedent broker apparatus.

  • Patent number: 5971840
    Abstract: An abrasive plate having an abrasive surface for performing abrading applications is provided. The plate includes a base member having a substantially smooth surface with a plurality of holes formed therethrough. A plurality of pairs of spaced apart slots radiate outwardly from each of the holes to define tab members. The tab members may be selectively raised or deformed to protrude from the smooth surface to collectively form an abrasive surface. The number of tabs raised may be selected to control the coarseness of the surface.

  • Patent number: 5769552
    Abstract: By employing two integrated components which cooperate to achieve a product dispensing trigger assembly, and mounting these two components to a container within which the desired product is retained and on which a desired seal is mounted, a unique fluid product holding and dispensing system is realized. In the present invention, the fluid product holding and dispensing system possesses two separate and distinct locked positions which assures that the system is retained in either locked position, until change is desired by the user. As a result, accidental or unwanted activation of the system is completely eliminated and users are assured that the product retained and sealed in the container remains sealed until use is desired and accidental opening or rupturing of the seal is completely eliminated.

  • Patent number: 5683292
    Abstract: An abrasive plate for use with a power sanding device having an abrasive surface for performing abrading applications. The plate includes at least two rows of protrusions. The protrusions in each row have an orientation substantially the same as the other protrusions in the respective row. The protrusions in each row have a bottom edge portion oriented at an angle of from about 45.degree. to about 135.degree. with respect to the bottom edge portions of the protrusions in each adjacent row. By providing an abrasive plate having protrusions with the above-noted orientations, the forces transmitted through the plate between a surface being treated and a power sander will be substantially balanced.

  • Patent number: 5669533
    Abstract: By employing two principal integrated components which incorporate a reusable sealing member, a resealable product dispensing trigger assembly is achieved. By mounting these two components to a container within which the desired product is retained, a complete fluid product holding and dispensing system is realized. In the present invention, the fluid product holding and dispensing system is alternately repeatedly movable between two separate and distinct locked positions which assures that the system is retained in either locked position, until change is desired by the user. In one position, the container is sealed, while in the second position, the container is open and the fluid is accessible. By employing the present invention, users are assured that the product retained in the container remains sealed until use is desired and accidental opening of the container is completely eliminated. Furthermore, the product can be partially used and resealed by returning the dispensing system to its first position.
