This paper introduces a bluetooth-based e-learning system, which enables mobile learning from anywhere using a variety of devices, including cell phones, PDAs, and laptops. Different from current e-learning systems, which require the access to the Internet or other pre-established networks, the bluetooth-based e-learning system can establish a wireless(More)
Optimal utilization of cluster computing is partly dependent upon pre-emptive process migration. However, this migration involves a host of issues, one of them being the transfer of system-dependent resources. We focus on the overhead incurred by migrated processes using sockets. We then describe a solution that we devised and implemented to avoid this(More)

Appendicitis within an Amyand's hernia is a rare clinical entity in itself and becomes especially more rare if it occurs in the left inguinal region. We report this rare case of Amyand's hernia where the appendix was found along with gangrenous ceacum during surgery for strangulated left inguinal hernia in an adult, who underwent resection, anastomosis and(More)
Solid pseudopapillary neoplasm of the pancreas is a rare tumor of the pancreas often detected initially on imaging. Of uncertain histogenesis, it has a low-grade malignant potential with excellent post-surgical curative rates and rare metastasis. Despite advances in imaging, pseudocysts and other cystic neoplasms feature in the differential diagnosis.(More)
Spigelian hernias are rare and generally difficult to diagnose because of their location and vague non-specific symptoms. They are situated between the muscular layers of the abdominal wall and can be easily overlooked because of abdominal obesity. The diagnosis has been considerably aided by the introduction of ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT).(More)
Intussusception in adults is a rare cause for intestinal obstruction and is usually secondary to some lesion in the gastrointestinal tract GIT. We report a case of intestinal obstruction due to ileo-colic intussusception; an inflammatory fibroid polyp formed the leading edge of the intussusceptum, which is a rare polypoidal lesion of the GIT.
Breast cancer is the most common cause of metastatic deposits in the skeleton, and bone is the most common site of recurrence of breast cancer. Breast cancer metastasis most commonly affects the spine, ribs, pelvis, and proximal long bones; however, only 3.5% of breast cancer patients develop long-bone metastases. The humerus is the most common(More)
There are different issues with typing Short Messaging Service (SMS) text in mobiles. Different techniques have been proposed previously that help type faster. We present a new technique for this purpose that uses ‘bigram’ model developed for Urdu language word prediction. Data structures used are optimized and customized for mobiles phones, considering(More)
