20130031211FEEDBACK ORIENTED PRIVATE OVERLAY NETWORK FOR CONTENT DISTRIBUTION - A network of computers each serving as a “node” within a private, closed peer-to-peer network having a network administrator. Each node has a CPU and a hard drive, input/output device and connectivity to other nodes through the Internet. Each node is provided a hard drive (cache) to handle a multitude of data files. The cache supports multiple streams of fragments to multiple calling nodes without delay or deterioration of transfer rates. A plurality of metrics programs monitor the data demands on each node, the usage of each node's hard drive, and the transfer rates possible from the assigned node and provide that information to the network in a database available to all nodes. The network administrator, utilizing a contrarian selection method, pushes disaggregated data to the nodes in the network to evenly load data throughout the network and to fully load the node's hard drives.01-31-2013
20130031210OPTIMIZED NEAR-SIMULTANEOUS DISTRIBUTION OF MULTIMEDIA CONTENT - The “swarming” behavior of multimedia content distribution network subscribers—numerous, near-simultaneous requests for the same content by different users—is predicted, based on analysis of past viewing habits. Users are grouped based on correlations in the multimedia content requested and the time at which it is requested. When a set of users of a group requests particular multimedia content, that content is autonomously distributed, via a shared distribution channel, to the terminal equipment of all users in the group, where it is buffered. As other users in the group request the same multimedia content, an initial portion is distributed to each requesting user via an individual channel. As the rendered content catches up to the buffered content, the terminal equipment switches from the content delivered via the individual distribution channel to the buffered content. The individual distribution is then terminated, and the individual distribution channel released.01-31-2013

The service-user computer receives a hot-key command, which the user has inputted through a keyword expressed on a keyword-keyskin keypocket covering the keypad; retrieves a value corresponding to the received hot-key command, the unique identification value of the service user, and the unique identification value of the keyword keyskin set information providing server from the recording medium; generates a request signal for an Internet service on the basis of the retrieved data; and then transmits the generated request signal to a service relay server. The service relay server receives the request signal; retrieves points of the service user, activity results of the keyword keyskin set information providing server, a unique identification value of the service relay server, and request-keyword-related data from a recording medium on the basis of the received data; calculates and stores the points of the service user and the activity results of the keyword keyskin set information providing server in the recording medium; generates a request signal for an Internet service on the basis of the retrieved data; and transmits the generated request signal to a service page providing server. The service page providing server receives the signal; retrieves points of the service user, activity results of the service relay server, and request-keyword-related service page data from a recording medium on the basis of the received data; calculates and stores the points of the service user and the activity results of the service relay server in the recording medium; and transmits an Internet service page to the service-user computer on the basis of the retrieved data. The service-user computer receives the transmitted service page, and outputs the received service page to a display means. According to the present invention, an Internet service user can very conveniently use Internet services with a hot-key at once while seeing various Internet service-related keywords expressed on the keyword-keyskin keypocket, and can also easily accumulate points corresponding to activity usage results, so that it is possible to contribute to improving informatization levels of Internet service users, and also to contribute to narrowing the gap between the rich and the poor in information and increasing the degree of Internet service utilization by handicapped persons.12-20-2012
