A technique for managing encryption keys includes encrypting the contents of a piece of media with a first encryption key, encrypting the first encryption key with a second encryption key, and storing the encrypted first encryption key on or in connection with the piece of media. Encrypted data may be recovered by receiving the encrypted first encryption key from the piece of media, receiving the second encryption key (e.g., from a user to whom the key is assigned), recovering the first encryption key using the second encryption key, and decrypting the data from the piece of media using the first encryption key.

A technique for organizing pathology samples includes sorting the samples into bins defined at different physical locations of a sorting apparatus, based on a set of designations applied to the samples. With such an arrangement, unorganized pathology samples may be grouped so that all the same accession numbers are grouped together for efficient filing or re-filing with reduced error. An apparatus suitable for use according to this technique includes a support structure and multiple dividers defining multiple sets of bins on the apparatus. A different set of bins is provided on the apparatus for each of the set of designations applied to the samples.

An improved technique for managing offsite data storage avoids the need for tapes or other media arriving at an offsite storage location to be mounted. The improved technique includes generating a list of data objects stored on each piece of media of a first set of media sent from a first site to a second site. A reply list is generated, which identifies any data objects that did not arrive at the second site. The missing data objects are stored on a second set of media being prepared for shipment from the first site to the second site. The second set of media typically contains not only the missing data objects, but also additional data objects.

An animal tracking device for tracking an animal shot with an arrow. The animal tracking device may include an antenna, a controller, an accelerometer switch, a battery powering the controller and/or accelerometer switch, an animal attachment component, and a housing physically connecting components of the animal tracking device. The accelerometer switch may measure an amount of G force it experiences and send an interrupt signal to the controller when the amount of G force measured is at or greater than a threshold amount for a threshold amount of time, indicating that the arrow has been shot. The controller may send wireless signals to a receiver via the antenna in response to receiving the interrupt signal. The housing may be detachably attached to the arrow. The animal attachment component may attach to an animal shot by the arrow and force the housing away from the arrow.

An animal tracking device removably attachable to an arrow and including an antenna, a controller, a battery for powering the controller, a housing for housing the antenna, controller, and battery, and an animal attachment component fixed to the housing. The controller may transmit wireless signals to a receiver via the antenna. The housing may have a first and second portion pivotally attached at a first joint. The first and second portions may also meet, but not attach with each other, at a second joint in a closed position. The first and second portions may pivot between the closed position and an open position about the first joint, may be naturally biased in the open position, and may be detachably attached in the closed position to the arrow shaft. The animal attachment component may attach to an animal shot by the arrow, forcing the housing away from the arrow.

In one arrangement, a storage system for storing items includes an enclosure enclosing a hypoxic environment, and a pallet shuttle system comprising rows of racks disposed within the hypoxic environment. The pallet shuttle system also includes at least one transfer car and at least one shuttle for carrying storage modules into and out of the racks. The system further includes a loading station outside the hypoxic environment, and an enclosure door to the hypoxic environment. The enclosure door is operable to admit the transfer car of the pallet shuttle system into and out of the hypoxic environment, and to close the hypoxic environment upon passage of the transfer car through the door. Optionally, the system includes paneling separating the enclosure into at least two separately climate-controlled zones such that at least one of the racks is in each of the at least two separately climate-controlled zones.

An animal tracking device comprising a housing, a controller, a battery, an antenna, a sleeve, an elastic ring, and a prong. The housing encloses the controller and the battery and includes a flexible clip having a flexible neck, a latch on an inner side of the flexible clip, an elastic ring groove on an outer side of the flexible clip for receiving the elastic ring, and a latch release member extending from the outer side between the flexible neck and the elastic ring groove. The elastic ring retains the housing over the sleeve to retain the animal tracking device on an arrow shaft. The latch release member catches on an animals hide and flexes the flexible clip out of engagement with the sleeve to release the animal tracking device from the arrow shaft. The prong embeds in the animals hide and retains the animal tracking device on the animal.

Instead of adding resources into a folder by specifying a list of identifiers, client applications add resources to a folder by specifying a search query that matches the resources to be added. The virtual folder is, therefore, a collection of search queries rather than a collection of resource identifiers. This allows the data archive systems to easily store folder information in a database. A client application can then search by specifying the folder as its search criteria to list all content associated with the folder. Additionally, to ensure that the list of results associated with a particular query does not change after the query is added into a folder, the data archive system also captures generation information associated with the particular query (i.e., the iteration of the search indexes at the time the query is received) and stores the generation information with the query as part of the folder.

A tamper resistant box includes: a front panel; a side panel attached to the front panel at a first fold line; a back panel attached to the side panel at a second fold line; a side top flap attached to the side panel at a third fold line; and a front top flap attached to the front panel at a fourth fold line. In some examples, the side top flap can define a tapered slot extending towards the third fold line from an edge of the side top flap at a location distal from the third fold line, and a widest portion of the tapered slot can define a tapered slot width. In further examples, the front top flap can define a top slot having a top slot width that is less than the tapered slot width.

A technique for identifying containers includes affixing labels indicating unique container IDs (identifiers) to containers at a point of manufacture. Labels are applied during a manufacturing process in a consistent manner. Customers are thus able to obtain pre-encoded, pre-identified containers with unique container IDs already applied.
