News about the Auranos.org business.
The last update of the news page was in Summer 2022. As far as Auranos as a website is concerned, its because there has been little to no news.
The company's attempts at providing high quality computer repairs as its main means of business turned out to be a futile attempt in marketplace dominated by companies which can fall back on government contracts should business from the public fail to be a viable source of revenue. The perceived reputability of computer repair companies which have a tax-based ultimate revenue streams makes the business of computer repairs stricly through public demand unviable. Computer repair issues occur so infrequently for most users and word of mouth is a more difficult thing to achieve when extremist anti-free speech organisations dominate the main channels of commpunication by which word of mouth can spread.
As the business picture became clear after 9 months of operating as a computer repair company, the director has to find another means by which to earn an income and dedicated a further three months toward moving the company toward being available as software development house as he sought more gainful employment beyond the business which is currently registered but dormant while it awaits a client who can appreciate the difference between bespoke software solutions and off-the-shelf products tailored toward generic situations.
Businesswise, there is still no news.
The Director's Hats
The Director (Stephen Duffy) has a number of hats which need to be worn by the company in the provision of its service to the public.
The Director is the Administrator for the Company taking care of the various organisations that the company communicates with.
The director is also the lead computer engineer for the company. Businesswise, a employee available to work for the company when the company has contracted to provide computer repairs with a client. The company is unable to provide enough work to hire the Director as an employee so the post is both vacant and unrequired.
The director is also the lead programmer for the company. Businesswise, a employee available to work for the company when the company has contracted to provide software with a client. Again the company has been unable to acquire a client due to the work commitments of the director who is currently seeking new markets for the skills of computer analysts in areas outside of digital computing.
Computational Solutions to Industrial Problems
It comes to my attention that all the physical processes involved in the haulage industry are connected by streams of objects with physical parameters. I undertook a study on increasing the speed of a conveyor belt taking all factors into account, including the that the conveyor is a vector between two nodes on a graph which depicts the entire distribution network.
The conveyor is comparable to a buffer holding objects which are fed to it through processes that are operating on other buffers. The entire haulage industry is a network which while having taken up new technology availble through computing such as satelite navigation, it has not been given the opportunity to adapt to scientific advances in networking which have been developed as the information technology revolution has happenned.
It may not be readily understandable that the analsys of the various processes going on inside computers and across computer networks, have a steady resemblance to the ways in which the input and output buffers associated with moving physical objects and and physical processors from one physical geographic location to another. Despite the difference between the physical and the electrical, both a physical object distribution network conforms to the same rules of any network, albeit that it has parameters which are peculiar to where the machine exists: in physical space.
A network is a network and advances in techniques developed within computing to improve things are not being applied in industry. Physical distribution networks have been around for at least as long as Roman roads or even longer. They have been enhance by industrial techniques such as trucks and mechanical means of conveyance. The eloquent solutions to network problems which have been developed in computing can be applied to real world distribution networks. As any computer enthusiast knows, the main advances in computing did not come from just making microchips go at faster frequencies but to do more while going at the same speed. Not all the ways in which these advances have been achieved can be mapped into the physical reality of a distribution network, but some of them can, and few of these advances are considered in the design of the current physical world machnine.
The processing involves a lot of human labour which has its limits and physical machinary which has its limits and the whole network is subject to the various laws of physical nature which affect it. It is not always possible to increase process rates but it is desirable to increase throughput. There is notable lack of eloquency in the industrial processes and yet there are eloquences which can be introduced which would increase throughput without neccesarily increasing process rates.
I attempted to explain the concept of pipelining to a transport manager with a some background in information technology having attempted to solve what was in my eyes "a slow connection" where computational solutions could be available to solve real world problems. What I noticed when I looked at the whole of industry, to the extent I have been a provider to its machinary, are filled with brutal ways and means of doing things because that is how it has always been done, and more advanced techniques are only now being suggested which will increase throughput, while making the process less labour intensive, while using the same resources which are available at present.
To find a computer component bigger than an elephant hiding in the middle of a distribution centre disguised as a conveyor belt brings me to introduce a new field of study for me I will refer to as Industrial Systems. I recall a Systems Enginnering course which used water pipes and laser beams to form the various parts of its system and the area of research will mostly not be about digital computers, but merely appling digital computer system advances into real world scenarios Jaques Fresco style.
