1. ANAS: Automated Newspaper Article Summarizer

Categories: None -- Permalink
Description: Limited to online World News text articles only, this summarizer utilizes the algorithms presented by R. Barzilay and M. Elhadad in their paper Using Lexical Chains for Text Summarization (1997). The techniques and methods they primarily used are Text Segmentation, Lexical Chains Computation and Sentence Selection and Extraction. The summarizer also uses the WordNet Lexical Database as its knowledgebase for word sense disambiguation and a Part-of-Speech Tagging Algorithm for the selection of candidate words from the input text. The algorithms used are based on shallow Linguistic Analysis Approach, which doesn't require a full semantic interpretation of the texts to produce its summary.

2. ACACia: ACACia Technical Helpdesk

Categories: None -- Permalink
Description: The ACACia Technical Helpdesk is a Java(TM)-based peer-to-peer application that would facilitate a user (help request) - peer/expert (feedback) mechanism. Each client's database would grow with information from other peers in the P2P network. Likewise, the client's database would also be made available to other peers. This would then produce redundancy of information, increasing its availability and the speed of the search system. Group Members: Chasky J. Bolido, Aldwin Philip C. Lee, Cheryl V. Lorica, Arnel B.

7. More on mozilla plugins : 09:48

Categories: None -- Permalink
From debian-user@lists.debian,org, Simon Piette:
http://www.privoxy.org/ is a good solution. It's the following of junkbuster. You can disable a plugin by default, and you can re-enable them site by site. Since it will change the HTML code embedding the flash file, so more messages about a missing plugin. Also, I think more recent versions of mozilla have a switch for that, and maybe some prefs.js editing could do it on 1.0.
