In computer networking, the Name/Finger protocol and the Finger user information protocol are simple network protocols for the exchange of human-oriented status and user information.
The Name/Finger protocol, written by David Zimmerman, is based on Request for Comments document RFC 742 (December 1977) as an interface to the name and finger programs that provide status reports on a particular computer system or a particular person at network sites. The finger program was written in 1971 by Les Earnest who created the program to solve the need of users who wanted information on other users of the network. Information on who is logged-in was useful to check the availability of a person to meet. This was probably the earliest form of presence information for remote network users.
Prior to the finger program, the only way to get this information was with a who program that showed IDs and terminal line numbers (the server's internal number of the communication line, over which the user's terminal is connected) for logged-in users. Earnest named his program after the idea that people would run their fingers down the who list to find what they were looking for.
Project is the second collaborative studio album by guitarists Greg Howe and Richie Kotzen, released on November 11, 1997 through Shrapnel Records. A previous collaboration between Howe and Kotzen, Tilt (1995), had sold well and thus resulted in a second album.
973 Program (Chinese:973计划) or also known as National Basic Research Program is a basic research program initiated by the People's Republic of China to achieve technology and strategic edge in various scientific fields and especially the development of the rare earth minerals industry.
The program was initiated in 1997 by the Chinese government to develop basic research, innovations and technologies aligned with national priorities in economic development and social development. The program was managed by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology. Natural Science Foundation of China is also involved in coordinating the research with the program.
Over the years the program has dedicated funding to areas such as agriculture, health, information, energy, environment, resources, population and materials.
The central government has in the past funded projects for a term of no more than five years. Recently, the funding model has changed to 2 + 3 years. Two years after the project has been implemented, it will be assessed by a special panel and allocate funding accordingly.
The feasibility of developing solar energy from Jamaica's year-round sun and wind is demonstrated by the successful operations of Wigton Windfarm Ltd and the BMR project, but they are exploiting only two locations when there are several other suitable locations in the island.
COLUMBUS — Pending state legislation giving local government more say in the future of solar fields and windfarms could be coming to a vote in the Ohio Statehouse here as early as the end of next week, according to one area state representative ... Approximately 25-30 solar projects are pending along with four or five windfarm proposals, he explained.
... technology that would allow carbon capture and storage projects to be monitored even if windfarms are built on top ... Industry experts say the clash between windfarms and carbon storage projects is set to increase as the Government ramps up development of both technologies to.
SSE Renewables Onshore Projects head Derek Hastings said ... “It also confirms Nexans’s capability to support major UK clients with large-volume, land-based power cable projects at distribution voltages.” ... Under the contract, Nexans will install onshore and offshore export cables for the project’s first phase of development.
Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspection and certification, has been selected to undertake project certification for the MorayWest offshore wind farm in Scotland - one of the UK’s most important offshore windfarm projects. The project aims to be fully operational by 2024, with a lifespan of 25 years.
It’s a big milestone for the very first wind farm project that’s set to be built just off the coast of Maryland.READ MORE ... This project has been a long time in the making, starting out back in 2015, but the buoy means Maryland is one step closer to a greener future.
California has taken a major step towards launching the first commercial offshore wind energy program on the west coast, a project that would open the state’s waters to hundreds of floating turbines and could eventually power 1.6m homes ... Those windfarms would be dwarfed by the scale of the California projects.
Crane and heavy lift engineering specialist Sarens is targeting growth in the US offshore wind sector ahead of a forecast boom in projects in North America... Crane and heavy lift capacity are crucial parts of offshore wind projects, as the capacity and availability of cranes limits the size and weight of the components windfarms can deploy.
Greek environmentalists are protesting against a flagship windfarm project whose giant turbines they say will ruin acres of ancient forests – underlining the tough choices the government faces in implementing a green energy drive.
