    In many circumstances, it is important to know positively whether a remote computer system has been updated. Transaction integrity protocols (e.g., two-phase commit) are normally used to ensure this. However, when a remote computer system is mobile, it may never be in direct communication with the same partner in...

    Disclosed is a Flapper Mechanism of a Passbook Printer containing a flapper. When the top or bottom edge of a paper passes through an area between a front guide and a rear guide, the flapper closes and makes a paper path. As this flapper is moved by a carrier motion, it does not need an exclusive actuator.

    Printed cut sheet forms are fed into the post processing unit from a main print engine or a paper cassette with a picker mechanism. The leading edge of the paper is sensed by the first paper sensor, and then the trailing edge is sensed. From this, the paper length can be immediately determined since the paper is...

    Disclosed is a method and system for generating a smooth node spacing function which defines the element size of two-dimensional mesh. The node spacing function is generated by minimizing the distortion energy of a thin plate bending model. The node spacing function generated by this method and system generates a...
