Mac OS X for UNIX Users The power of UNIX and the simplicity of Macintosh: With Mac OS X, you can have the best of both worlds.

Technology Brief Mac OS X v10.2 Technologies Mac OS X for UNIX Users Apple’s Mac OS X operating system combines a robust and open FreeBSD foundation with the richness and usability of a Macintosh interface, bringing UNIX technology to the mass market for the first time. There are over 5 million Mac OS X users, including scientists, animators, developers, and system administrators, making Apple the largest vendor of UNIX-based systems. Mac OS X is the first UNIX-based environment to run Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, and thousands of other consumer applications natively—all side by side with traditional command-line and X11 applications. It is also the best UNIX-based environment for portable computers, with full power man- agement and mobility support for Apple’s award-winning PowerBook G4.

the Aqua guidelines are another extension of the original interface guidelines, addressing new features of the Mac OS X user interface. The most important lesson to take from this discussion is that Apple has put a lot of time and thought into how Macintosh applications should look and behave. The company has produced an excellent set of rules and recommenda- tions for constructing contemporary user interfaces, and developers should read, understand, and follow them when developing Macintosh applications. Try to envision the programs you write for Mac OS X as being members of a complete, well-thought-out system where certain rules exists to promote the user experience. Your application should exist within this context, and not as a separate entity. 1.3 The Mac OS X user interface

Developing a user interface for smart rainwater buffer systems

Developing a user interface for smart rainwater buffer systems

The final product should be the answer to the main research question, as it performs as a user interface for a smart rainwater buffer system and was positively tested, albeit with Creative Technology students as participants instead of early adopters. The second question was partially answered. Due to choices made during the development of the smart rainwater buffer itself, monitoring of the usage was impossible. The insight into the water collection was achieved, as the user interface provides multiple ways to view the amount of water in the system, and see when and why water entered or left the system. The last question was only answered during the ideation phase, and was not worked out completely due to the earlier mentioned choices made during the development of the smart rainwater buffer. The work done during the ideation phase should however be a good start for future work on this subject.

User Interface Challenges of Banking ATM Systems in Nigeria

User Interface Challenges of Banking ATM Systems in Nigeria

primarily through audio and video records from ATM users at the ATM service point as part of security surveillance. At ATM service points, users talk, and in some cases, express their honest opinion, possibly in their own language. These comments are usually honest since ATM users are unaware that their comments are being recorded. They also claimed they collect feedback on system acceptability through one on one interaction with users, through help desk services and through emails and phone calls. Four participants receive feedback through administration of questionnaires on users to get immediate responses and through evaluation of system traffic, knowing whether it is on the increase of decrease from the point of implementation. Participants # 8 and # 6 noted their feedback from users can be obtained through the ATM system, especially when there is a transmission problem, such as use of wrong ATM code, trying to overdraw the account, exceeding the daily allowance or using expired ATM card. Participants # 3 and # 5 talked about monthly ATM feedback survey forms handed out or emailed to ATM customers, and during campaign and short seminar presentations. Participant #9 suggested the incorporation of a feedback bottom in the ATM system interface to give users the opportunity to rate the system interface whether it is easy to use and acceptable.

Agent based User Interface Design for Mobile Cloud Computing Environment (AUID)

Agent based User Interface Design for Mobile Cloud Computing Environment (AUID)

offerings are made over the Cloud and the user can consume the computing capabilities like CPU power &storage space, over the Cloud (Internet); without knowing the location of the computing resources. Cloud computing thus offers fast, simple, on-demand resources accessible from anywhere, on the globe almost instantaneously. Currently there are three types of Clouds exist – Public, Private and Hybrid. Public Cloud, as the name suggests, is accessible to general public – wherein services are sold as a utility. Here the consumer pays only when the Computing resources are being utilized. Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure currently offer Public Cloud on a large scale. Private Clouds are generally restricted cloud networks, created and maintained by companies internally. Such an environment is advantageous to both the Cloud service provider and consumer. For the service Provider, there exists a central control from where the installation and administration of instances can be provided and monitored constantly. Moreover, none of the resources procured, ever stay idle due to the inbuilt virtualization concept of Cloud computing.

Development of User Interface for the Management Server of Html5 Based Mobile Agent Framework

Development of User Interface for the Management Server of Html5 Based Mobile Agent Framework

Recent times have seen exciting developments in the fields of computer networking and the World Wide Web. There is a swift rise in the usage of web-based services for data storage and information exchange. This has given challenges to the web developers to come up with efficient ways of handling huge amount of data and information flow. One of the possible ways to address these challenges consists of mobile agents. A mobile agent is a computer software which is able to move (migrate) from one computer to another and continue its execution in new destination [2]. A mobile agent framework allows different agents to move between different hosts and communicate with other agents. HTTP is a well-known, widely accepted mechanism that contains all the necessary primitives to sup- port a mobile agent framework.

User Interface Specification Issues for Computerized Educational Systems

User Interface Specification Issues for Computerized Educational Systems

As the principles for designing human-compu- ter interaction prescribe, frequent users should be provided user-defined dialogue like com- mand interfaces, while intermittent and novice users prefer system-defined dialogue like menu interfaces. Menu selection additionally reduces memory load by supporting users in making the right choice freeing them of the need to memo- rize specific commands. Moreover, due to their great impact on human-computer interaction, users’ individual differences have to be taken into account too, e.g. 7 ] .

Towards a Playful User Interface for Home Entertainment Systems

Towards a Playful User Interface for Home Entertainment Systems

In this paper we report on a project where we explore a specific design option that introduces a playful element to controlling channels on a TV. Our focus was on pro- viding means for changing a channel in a playful and pleasant, but hence effective way. Other functions could be included in the interface but this is not discussed fur- ther in this paper. In the next section we briefly explain the idea how we assessed the concept by talking to users. This is followed by a detailed description of the imple- mentation. We discuss then our use experience and initial user feedback. Finally this is concluded with a discussion showing general issues for building tangible user inter- faces for this domain.

MONIT. UNIX Systems Management

MONIT. UNIX Systems Management

Introduction monit is a utility for managing and monitoring, processes, files, directories and devices on a Unix system. Monit conducts automatic maintenance and repair and can execute meaningful causal actions in error situations. E.g. monit can start a process if it does not run, restart a process if it does not respond and stop a process if it uses to much resources. You may use monit to monitor files, directories and devices for changes, such as timestamp changes, checksum changes or size changes.

Understanding Security Rules 33 When an event source detects an event and assigns output parameter values, the event detection and alerting daemon uses the values to trigger the appropriate rule response in the associated rule group. For example, you can configure a rule in an agent computer rule set that alerts you when an FTP event associated with a particular user account is detected. To successfully trigger your FTP rule, you must have an event source that can do the following:

Simple Fortran Multitasking Library for the Apple Macintosh Computer

Simple Fortran Multitasking Library for the Apple Macintosh Computer

Multiprocessing Services Library (v. 2.1) and is described in the document, “Adding Multitasking Capability to Applications Using Multiprocessing Servers,” Technical Publications, Apple Computer, 1999. This document is available at the web address: http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/macos8/OSSvcs/MultiPServices/multiprocessin gservices.html. This programming interface is low-level and unnecessarily complex for simple tasks. We have therefore written a simpler interface, which we call MacMP.f, that addresses more directly the typical needs of scientific programmers. This library is freely available on our web site: http://exodus.physics.ucla.edu/appleseed/ and has been tested with the Absoft Fortran compiler [1].
