According to some examples, a method is provided in which a set of offsets are received from a server computing device and an image of a keyboard is presented on a display device coupled to a client computing device. The client computing device receives a user selection of a location, on the image, associated with a keyboard character shown by the image. The location is associated with a set of coordinates on the image. The client computing device applies the set of offsets to the set of coordinates to produce a set of offset coordinates. The set of offset coordinates are sent to the server computing device.
WO/2016/080991 METHOD FOR DRILLING AND FRACTURE TREATING MULTIPLE WELLBORES||WO||26.05.2016|
||PCT/US2014/066512||APACHE CORPORATION ||BAHORICH, Michael, S. |
A method includes completing multiple wellbores in a subsurface formation. The method includes a first wellbore having been drilled along a first selected trajectory through the subsurface formation. The first wellbore is fracture treated. A second wellbore is drilled along a second selected trajectory through the subsurface formation. The second trajectory is laterally spaced from the first trajectory. The second wellbore is fracture treated. A third wellbore is drilled along a third selected trajectory through the subsurface formation. The third trajectory is disposed between the first and second trajectories. The third wellbore is fractured treated such that a fracture network extending therefrom hydraulically connects to fracture networks extending from the first and second wellbores and hydraulically connects the first, second and third wellbores proximate an upper end thereof so that the first, second and third wellbores may all produce fluids.

WO/2016/081013 ADAPTABLE COIL-NFC ANTENNA FOR POWERED AND UNPOWERED APPLICATIONS||WO||26.05.2016|
||PCT/US2014/066975||EMPIRE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT LLC ||FINE, Kevin, S. |
Technologies are generally described to provide adaptable near field communication (NFC) in portable devices to enable a portable device to provide wireless power transfer (WPT) functionality and NFC functionality. According to some examples, a wireless power antenna installed on the portable device may be configured to function as a WPT antenna and as an NFC antenna. For example, the wireless power antenna may be a coil, which may be modified to adjust a quality factor (Q) by incorporation of a switchable resistor element. The modified coil may function as a wireless power receiver/transmitter with a high Q value when the resistor element is added and as an active NFC antenna with a low Q value when the resistor is not added. Additionally, the modified coil may further enable the portable device to function as a passive NFC antenna when the portable device is unpowered.
WO/2016/080981 REDUCING MICROSEISMIC MONITORING UNCERTAINTY||WO||26.05.2016|
||PCT/US2014/066387||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC. ||DYKSTRA, Jason D. |
Uncertainty of microseismic monitoring results can be reduced to improve hydraulic fracture modeling. A computing device can use a fracture model to determine a predicted geometry of a hydraulic fracture in a subterranean formation based on properties of a fracturing fluid that is introduced into the subterranean formation. An uncertainty index of the predicted geometry of the hydraulic fracture can be determined based on an uncertainty value of the predicted geometry and a trend of uncertainty values. When the injection flow rate of the fracturing fluid is less than a maximum flow rate, it can be increased from an initial injection flow rate to an increased injection flow rate in response to determining the uncertainty index exceeds a pre-set maximum.

||PCT/US2014/066918||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC. ||WALKER, Jonathan Paul |
Lost circulation compositions, systems, and methods of using the same are described. A lost circulation composition comprises a water-swellable starch graft copolymer; and a carrier fluid. A method for bridging a lost circulation zone comprises providing a lost circulation composition comprising a water-swellable starch graft copolymer and a carrier fluid. Then introducing the lost circulation composition into a wellbore within a subterranean formation, wherein the subterranean formation comprises a lost circulation zone. Finally the lost circulation composition is placed into the lost circulation zone.
WO/2016/081005 VIRTUAL TARGET PORT AGGREGATION||WO||26.05.2016|
||PCT/US2014/066728||HEWLETT PACKARD ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT LP ||DHANADEVAN, Komateswar |
Approaches for aggregating ports of switch connected to ports of a target node, are described. In one example, for a fibre channel exchange received from a host node, for a target node a plurality of target node ports of the target node associated with the virtual port are determined. The fibre channel exchange comprises a sequence of frame. Once the plurality of target node ports are determined, a first frame is directed to one target node port selected from the plurality of the target node ports, where the one target node port is selected based port selection criteria. Based on the directing of the first frame, subsequent frames of the fibre channel exchange to the selected one target node port are also directed.
