Proteus, a prototype wave adaptive modular vessel, cuts through the waters of the Hudson River in New York.


NEW YORK - Pity the fisherman or sailor who staggers on deck in the morning and through bleary eyes sees a giant water spider, legs akimbo and buzzing ominously, coming at him.

No cause for alarm, however. It's just Proteus, a so-called Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel designed for everything from military uses to biological studies, ocean exploration and sea rescue.

The spindly catamaran is so efficient that it can travel 5,000 miles — farther than across the Atlantic — on one load of diesel fuel.

Daniel Basta, director of the National Marine Sanctuaries for the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, said the lightweight, low-cost and modular craft is well suited to scientific and environmental purposes using technology that is itself smaller and less cumbersome.

"Proteus will be able to launch and recover automatic vehicles, do remote vehicle operations, it will be tested for standard dive support operations, putting instruments on the bottom, collecting data — all the things that we currently do in one form or another, but most likely more cheaply, effectively and probably better."

Proteus was making its first appearance in New York, the fourth leg of a tour that began in San Francisco last January and will end in Washington, D.C.

It tooled around the harbor off lower Manhattan, a seagoing traffic-stopper that looked as if it might have escaped from Steven Spielberg's warehouse of props for the next "War of the Worlds" movie.

Although the U.S. Coast Guard had been alerted in advance to the strange craft's presence, it dispatched a small patrol craft to check it out.

Ugo Conti, an Italian-born engineer and oceanographer who designed Proteus, was aboard a chartered harbor cruise boat during his creation's star turn on Thursday.

Conti and his wife, Isabella, are the co-founders of Marine Advanced Research, Inc., a Silicon Valley-based firm that built the Proteus for about $1.5 million, she said.

The craft rides on metal and fabric pontoons that have hinges and shock absorbers to flex with the motion of the waves, which helps it to skim over the water at a maximum speed of 30 knots (34.5 mph).

Technology / NTP (Network Time Protocol)
« on: September 09, 2007, 12:46:09 PM »
SOURCE: Wikipedia.Org

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a protocol for synchronizing the clocks of computer systems over packet-switched, variable-latency data networks. NTP uses UDP port 123 as its transport layer. It is designed particularly to resist the effects of variable latency (jitter).

NTP is one of the oldest Internet protocols still in use (since before 1985). NTP was originally designed by Dave Mills of the University of Delaware, who still maintains it, along with a team of volunteers.

NTP is not related to the much simpler DAYTIME (RFC 867) and TIME (RFC 868) protocols.

Overview

NTP uses Marzullo's algorithm with the UTC time scale, including support for features such as leap seconds. NTPv4 can usually maintain time to within 10 milliseconds (1/100 s) over the public Internet, and can achieve accuracies of 200 microseconds (1/5000 s) or better in local area networks under ideal conditions.

The NTP Unix daemon is a user-level process that runs continuously on a machine that supports NTP, and most of the protocol is implemented in this user process. To get the best performance from NTP, it is important to have the standard NTP clock phase-locked loop implemented in the operating system kernel, rather than using only the intervention of the external NTP daemon: all recent versions of the Linux and Solaris operating systems have this support.

The operational details of NTP are illustrated in RFC 778, RFC 891, RFC 956, RFC 958, and RFC 1305. The current reference implementation is version 4 (NTPv4); however, as of 2005, only versions up to 3 (1992) have been documented in RFCs. The IETF NTP Working Group has formed to standardize the work of the NTP community since RFC 1305 et al.

A less complex form of NTP that does not require storing information about previous communications is known as the Simple Network Time Protocol or SNTP. It is used in some embedded devices and in applications where high accuracy timing is not required. See RFC 1361, RFC 1769, RFC 2030 and RFC 4330.

Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP include the Windows Time Service, which has the ability to sync the computer clock to an NTP server. However, the version in Windows 2000 only implements SNTP. As of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, the Windows Time Service implements the more robust NTPv3 protocol as specified in RFC 1305.

Clock strata

(Note that this is different from the notion of clock strata used in telecommunications systems.)

NTP uses a hierarchical system of "clock strata". The stratum levels define the distance from the reference clock and the associated accuracy.

Stratum 0
    These are devices such as atomic (cesium, rubidium) clocks, GPS clocks or other radio clocks. Stratum-0 devices are not attached to the network; instead they are locally connected to computers (e.g. via an RS-232 connection using a Pulse per second signal).
Stratum 1
    These are computers attached to Stratum 0 devices. Normally they act as servers for timing requests from Stratum 2 servers via NTP. These computers are also referred to as time servers. Many Stratum 1 servers (for NTP v3 and earlier versions) may not actually be operating with Stratum 1 precision. As the NTP protocol is developed, it will become less and less possible for misleading Stratum 1 servers to run -- instead the protocol would automatically bump the server Stratum level down accordingly.
Stratum 2
    These are computers that send NTP requests to Stratum 1 servers. Normally a Stratum 2 computer will reference a number of Stratum 1 servers and use the NTP algorithm to gather the best data sample, dropping any Stratum 1 servers that seem obviously wrong. Stratum 2 computers will peer with other Stratum 2 computers to provide more stable and robust time for all devices in the peer group. Stratum 2 computers normally act as servers for Stratum 3 NTP requests.
Stratum 3
    These computers employ exactly the same NTP functions of peering and data sampling as Stratum 2, and can themselves act as servers for higher strata, potentially up to 16 levels. NTP (depending on what version of NTP protocol in use) supports up to 256 strata. It is hoped that in NTP 5 (a protocol still in development) that only 8 or 16 strata will be permitted.

-------->>>>>>...

NTP is very useful to those organization nga nag-gamit ug Time Attendance System, computers/time keeping machines will sync time from the master server which is connected to the internet (accurate time is business).

For single PC nga connected directly sa internet, you can check if your running NTP by issuing this command at the command prompt:

C:\Documents and Settings\marcopolo>net time /querysntp

The current SNTP value is: time.windows.com,0x1  --> set by default on windows system

To change the server:
C:\Documents and Settings\marcopolo>net time /setsntp:SERVER_NAME

For Unix/Linux/BSD/other *nixes, it will cost you some dollars if you're going to ask me. ;D  JOKE!

just send me your questions thru PM...  ;)

pero naa ko nakaila diri sa SG nga usa ka IT professional nga taas pa kaayo sya ug paglaum sa pilipinas, he even lead the testing for the e-voting here in SG months ago. even though dli satisfactory ang results sa testing, maski gamay ra ang support nga nakuha gkan sa pinoy community diri pero at least naa lang gihapon mitabang so saludo ko nila tanan! ;)

and i just hope nga madugangan pa ang mga tawo nga taas ang paglaum (para molambo) sa pinas or else mosamot ka makalolooy atoa nasud.

hopefully makabasa sila sa mga postings dri...
