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.
Under the campaign, all provinces and municipalities were required to establish temporary 6521 taskforces under the local Communist Party and Public Security leadership. Authorities at the township and county levels were also required to implement the 6521 project, reporting on their progress to municipal or provincial taskforces above them.
Offshore (1979) is a novel by Penelope Fitzgerald. It won the Booker Prize for that year. It recalls her time spent on boats on the Thames in Battersea. The novel explores the liminality of people who do not belong to the land or the sea, but are somewhere in between. The epigraph, "che mena il vento, e che batte la pioggia, e che s'incontran con si aspre lingue" ("whom the wind drives, or whom the rain beats, or those who clash with such bitter tongues") comes from Canto XI of Dante's Inferno.
"Offshore", when used relative to hydrocarbons, refers to an oil, natural gas or condensate field that is under the sea, or to activities or operations carried out in relation to such a field. There are various types of platform used in the development of offshore oil and gas fields, and subsea facilities.
The sector is projected to continue growing as other emerging offshore energy technologies, like offshore wind farms, also require decommissioning services ... To address the emerging bottlenecks, OEUK suggests that the offshore wind, carbon capture and storage, and oil and gas ...
The offshore oil export terminal, the first to be approved of four proposed along Texas’ Gulf Coast, will enable continued growth in U.S ... The project aims to improve the efficiency of oil exports from the Texas coast, where smaller tankers currently ferry oil from coastal depots to larger ships that wait in deeper water, miles offshore.

Ute Daewel et al, Offshore wind farms are projected to impact primary production and bottom water deoxygenation in the North Sea, CommunicationsEarth & Environment (2022).
The project is near Hull, EastYorkshire, next to the Creyke Beck substation, which will act as a grid- connection point for two phases of the world’s largest offshore wind farm, Dogger Bank. Tesla built the project and will operate it through Autobidder, its algorithmic trading platform.
But offshore wind has run into economic headwinds in recent weeks, with projects further along the development pipeline than the three proposed for off North Carolina's coastal waters, one off the Outer Banks and two south of Bald Head Island in Brunswick County, being paused or delayed.
It is yet to be seen how Britam’s pullout will affect TotalEnergies and China NationalOffshore Oil Corporation, both of whom have sided with Uganda to publicly defend Eacop as a project that meets IFC’s environmental and social standards, in order to secure financing and insurance coverage for the pipeline.
has 27 wind farm projects in development, with an additional five locations up for auction in California next month, according to the BusinessNetwork for OffshoreWind, a nonprofit dedicated to helping develop the offshore wind industry ... wind projects off the Delaware coast.
Such waves of offshore wind projects, with the combined potential to ultimately power the equivalent of nearly 3 million typical homes, could fuel a clean-energy surge that accelerates North Carolina toward its mandated emissions reductions aimed at curbing climate change.
In the case of offshore gas ...Let us take look at what the evidence reveals about offshore oil and gas and the economy ... The fact is, in terms of job creation to date Operation Phakisa — government’s project driving the country’s offshore oil and gas industry — has been a failure.
