http://uddi.microsoft.com/about/FAQshutdown.htm

December 20, 2005 Microsoft is telling techs the Premium Standard is a minimum for Vista Aero.

http://www.intelliadmin.com/blog/2006/12/microsoft-releases-requirements-for.html 

These are absolute minimum requirements, and our testing here shows that to be productive in any way you will need to meet the Vista 'Premium' requirements:

-1 GHZ Processor
-1 GB of RAM
-A DirectX 9 Compatible Video card with a WDDM driver, 128 MB of ram, and 2.0 pixel shader
-40 GB of hard drive space

Even with the above specs, you will still feel Vista is sluggish. At least 2 GB of ram will make things much faster.
 

January 12, 2006 UDDI publication ceased.

January ??, 2006 Vista Windows Vista Premium Ready PCs Campaign becomes a two-sticker campaign ( or Windows Vista Capable ) to enrich Intel by dropping their qualification standards for Vista.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsvista/buyorupgrade/capable.mspx

This is what you had to do to be a proper customer to Microsoft after the techno-bait-and-switch:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsvista/buyorupgrade/upgradeadvisor.mspx

Question: Why would Microsoft principals want to drop the qualification standards for anybody unless there was a compelling financial reason to do so? What benefit did it bring Microsoft? And if there is no common sense financial benefit to Microsoft?

Such a move as performed by Microsoft by dropping the performance qualifications to allow Intel to market a very large number of their Vista-incapable graphics chip sets as Vista Ready is so obviously fraught with risks charter, fiduciary and judicial principles, one has to conclude that, given no financial advantage to Microsoft, one can assume the act was involuntary on Microsoft's part.

In other words, somebody at Intel has a picture of somebody in Microsoft management and a dog we all would rather not have to see.

Well, in my world, the only thing that would get you to do what Microsoft did for Intel is if somebody had and promised to show the pictures of "our" last little strategy party to the world and me and the Poodle in the throes of kavorka-fueled puppy love was the hit of the party. Not good public relations for a corporate management culture toward instilling a general appearance of "soundness" IYKWIM.

(By the way, you may notice this will mark the point in the timeline when I shoved this post over the opinion line about as far as you can see. All I know is speculation and association but you're going to have to explain the trends if you're going to contend.)

Large earthquakes start as a "letting go" of wholeness on either side of a dividing line. People call them "faults". The same image can be drawn within a corporate population as a monolithic and homoegenous rock.

A tear across the surface of least resistance will cultivate between the populace who won't cross an ethical line and those to which ethical lines are imaginary boundary. When the impending tear progresses, you see or can sometimes project what path the good guys will take and which path the bad guys think will work.

Perhaps with time there will be those who don't intend to be found helping a lie perpetrate and there are many effective ways for discussing things in this present electronic age.

So the future is all a tither.

Alot has been said and there's more to look at. These are my opinions and impressions and if you don't understand the world of SCADA, don't sit and curse me. Learn something about distributed computing in some form before you start blathering about what one company has done and another hasn't.

Why this focus on UDDI? UDDI seems like an intimidating subject or concept, but it will give you, as a novice, a foundation for perceiving just how architecture determines how data and commands in a system will be handled and why some ideas are elegant, some are close-but-no-cigar and some are dogs-stepped-on-by-ponies.

UDDI also acts as a marker to correlate other events so a general sense of the direction a technology is headed (or not headed) can be mapped out before the common man finds out (if ever).

Think through and come up with a refutation of what I am saying.

So enjoy what you will but do your own thinking and compare what you know to all that you are considering. Make sure you're honest about what you see and how you're portraying the defining area and volume immediate to that fault.

Don't find yourself having to ignore the full range of a subject and limit your understanding about a particular uncomfortable subject.

Don't be slavish to a view you are  supposed to take based on an industry view, associations, avowed principles or issues hampering the considerations.

Think through. Work toward the most likely concept of future goal, regardless of limitations. Compare that emulation with the possiblilities suggested with the real picture and decide if the delta (the amount of change necessary to achieve the goal from present state) is possible conceptually (are you able to describe a scenario that starts at the present situation and can demonstrably follow a path that logically could happen to get to desired or above goal) or is simply a wishful thought (the resources or path to obtain enabling resources doesn't exist or has no chain of resources could make up the perceived gap from here to there).

Anywho, Have fun and we'll compare notes with each other on the other side of MIX08 or better.

Jump to msg. #   But Seriously, Folks.

What I see of baveman's material indicates the next (and primary) phase of VCSY integration will be (is being) performed on Inetpurchasing. Inet had a hive computer (pyfarm - sandstorm) a large multiple parallel processor built from off the shelf (OTS) processor modules. The machine was located at the convenience and goodwill of Inet. Time frame around 18 months ago - bave will have to check my time but the words are clear.

This indicates a steady growth into another vertical (pardon the pun). Government financing and purchasing - this is where the security effort is needed most (as if security efforts are ever needed any less anywhere - but the human beans must have their ROI justifications).

NOW Solutions grew out of VCSY's core technologies gluing the existing suite of ROSS Human Resources applicatons together and then adding Enwisen suite to the functionality. emPath is the software doing the gluing.

Indications like cacti on the desert plain tha empath is making the rounds outside the hospital - same for focal point engine.

Speaking of prickly pairs, I've always liked this little cheer. Baveman's Bomber's offer it up to the Recy's Peeses team. It goes a little something like this:

California Orange Juice
Texas Cactus
We think your team needs more practice.

yeeee wooo woooo hooowaaahhh wweeee
*shake pompoms*

Basil's status as a government entity is impressive and well placed.

Rossetti's original position in connection with Basil was in the area of Government travel and purchasing. He's getting to do exactly what he has been doing since hooking up with Basil. We know the govmint glue gun is at work at Globalfare.

The principals (Valdetaro, Davison, Svigalis) are moving forward on a previously announced business plan (a year ago was it?).

Yeah. Sounds like these guys are desperate.

Maybe pops is right. Maybe Davison, Valdetaro and Svigalis - the top people in their field are moonlighting at these other outfits (so close yet so far... only a phone call away... "Hey. You guys got any peanut butter over there on the shelf we can have? We're starving over here and we're, like, real bored." "You wanna play risk?" "Kewl.")

Someone needs to wake up the parcheesee brothers and let them know the game's about to get busted up.

Healthy business plan advancing.

The goal of the PyFarm Project is to produce a fast, inexpensive, scalable web server. Keeping all data in RAM bypasses the slowest part of a modern computer, the disk I/O subsystem. Using Open Source software and minimalist commodity hardware keeps the cost down. And the hope is that scalability can be achieved via a central load balancer. The load balancer provides a practical way to distribute load across multiple stand-alone processors, making it possible to add processors to support additional load.
HARDWARE
· Database Server
· Load Balancer
· N Web Servers
The Database Server keeps most data in RAM. As a rule of thumb, the RAM required for efficient processing is three times the size of the data. If the size of the data is less than 500 megabytes, a 32-bit processor will suffice. If the data size exceeds 500 megabytes, then the RAM size approaches a practical 32-bit limit and a 64-bit processor is required.
The Load Balancer and Web Servers use 32-bit Intel cpu's in the PC-104 form factor. Each cpu has its own dedicated RAM. Up to N Web Server cpu's can be used for large user loads; the upper limit of N is a matter of speculation at the moment.
SOFTWARE
· Linux
· Medusa
· Python
· Sandstorm
· Java
· J
· K
Medusa is a high-performance TCP/IP server written in Python. Python's strength as a high-level scripting language provides the flexibility to modify Medusa at run-time. The initial PyFarm will be based on Medusa. Python will also be the scripting language available for programming Web Servers using the active server page model.
Sandstorm promises improved server performance under load. Server events are decomposed into a set of stages connected by queues. The design is called "staged event-driven architecture" or SEDA. When demand exceeds capacity, SEDA's determinism should provide ways to tune resouce consumption to prevent overcommitment. Under heavy load, users would experience gradual service degradation rather than abrupt cessation or interminable waits. A prototype implementation of Sandstorm has been done in Java. Comparison tests are planned between Medusa and Sandstorm to determine an optimum software arrangement.

Port,

 Not sure how to get a hold of you.

What are the chances of the Goverment, SEC or ??? not allowing V to get too big.

Could the Government or some official group say

" This VCSY they have something that One company should not have we need competition to level the playing field. This VCSY in time could control the internet". How can we keep them from all the control."

Your thoughts.

I think it's important to put your comment out in front, joeh, as this has been on my mind also. Remember Iridium? Gonna let all them satellites burn up because the company went bankrupt. Right. That's a swell plan.

The media inquisitiveness was so great they 'found out' the satellites and Iridium were picked up and coddled by the Military (among others, no doubt unless we're all living in the garage freezer) and are alive and well. I don't know if the shareholders shared that fate, though. More than likely not as they didn't make a very big stink.

I had just that concern that certain aspects of what the VCSY patents and the Northrup network patents do could be deemed national security assets (it's why the US HAS a patent office and why Europe couldn't tell you how their water heaters were fitted for energy savings). Einstein destroyed the concept of patents in Europe because no German Jew was going to tell the Reichshlingers how light worked.

Their prejudices saved our Gentile butts in WWII.

I think the same thing is in play. America stands on its information technology or falls by lack of same. I think the arsDigita/Red Hat work with IBM on the UN developmentgateway.org puts the balance of technological power in a good ying/yang position for the world; something I would think would be a proper goal for Mister Feeney to seek.

All things considered there at least 300 consistent screaming meemies who read these blogs and others who would have big time questions should Richard Wade come out of a congressional meeting with that "What? Me worry?" look and turned out pockets.

Not to mention leverage with the press. I'm not so worried anymore. The government isn't concerned with size. It's concerned with service for its own needs and profile. I think VCSY's state-gateway concept will enamour many a Senator to their grand state.

The industry will be so pre-occupied watching Microsoft and Google slug it out, they won't see the baby growing into a giant.

As for 'owning the internet' General Atlantic bought Network Solutions when everyone thought Internet domain naming was a dead business. Feeney knows what he's doing. It's those who refuse to believe the conspiracy that are flying blind.

I thought it was important to put your comment out to show what kind of atmosphere small cap companies must work in. When a small guy survives, it's against great odds proportional to the value of the property he holds.
