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.
Second is the building of a 1.4 GW floating offshore windfarm off the coast of Clare and Kerry with Equinor, the ESB’s Norwegian partner for the project, in two phases at a cost of “€2 billion plus” – with the first power scheduled for 2028 with the capacity to power 1.6 million homes ... you’ll see the windfarm”, Dollard says.
... battery storage projects across the UK and Europe ... Future acquisitions could include solar projects on the Iberian peninsula in Spain, where the costs of installing solar panels have 'come down hugely', Mahy says, as well as investments in windfarms in Sweden, Germany and France.
There are three ways an energy supplier can offer a renewable energy tariff even if they do not own any renewable projects ... The four deals that make the grade are all from Good Energy, which sources clean electricity directly from 1,600 renewable energy projects across the UK, and runs its own solar and windfarms too.
A number of sweeping wind farms are being erected on the rolling plains of northwest Oklahoma as part of a $2 billion project by Invenergy. . Another wind project owned by Duke EnergyRenewables in the northern part of the state just went online this month ...Frontier II is the second phase of a project the Duke Energy unit started years ago.
Their restoration project aims to bring oysters back to the seabed in Langstone Harbour, near Portsmouth on the Hampshire coast. The project will seek to transform marine biodiversity and water quality in the Solent - the strait which separates Hampshire and the Isle of Wight - which was once home to Europe’s largest oyster fishery.

“This partnership will marry Crowley’s transferable engineering, vessel operations, project management, and logistics experience in the U.S ... ports and renewable energy projects built on the U.S ... potential windfarm installations due to come online in the next few years.
One can usually take a mental break when the budget speech turns to capital allowances. It’s the tinkering bit. This time was different ... So spend £10m on new equipment and reduce your taxable income by £13m, as the chancellor put it ... It didn’t happen in the budget ... Public money was used to back green projects from windfarms to street lighting systems ... .
There was a failure to consider the impact of the proposed development with a nearby solar power project, it is further claimed ... The proposed windfarm had been through a lengthy planning process and, if given the go ahead, would create some 160 jobs during a projected 18-month construction period, the developer claims.
Massive new windfarm projects in South Korea and elsewhere are set to be a huge drain on resources.Story continues ... It is also financing new exploration and production projects outside China ... NdPr - neodymium and praseodymium, used in windfarm turbine magnets - has gone from $40,685 a tonne a year ago to £63,064 in January, to $72,543 today.
