Dear Sister, Your DSN Website

Use Your DSN Website Imagination

Sunday, March 21, 2020, 8 AM

Greetings Sister, 

Thank you for joining me on this page in I draw your attention to any subdomains to the left of the “” root domain and the page folders to the right of root domain. The subdomains to the left of the domain define where your website is located on the internet. The page folders provide the location of data content and software services within your site.

The blog post you are reading is located at this URL

The above words convey meaning by an example. If you look in the upper left of your screen you will see “”, known as the “domain”. Were you to see “” you would rightly expect to find digital copies of Oliver’s World War II. 

Oliver Archives

Imagine a family website named “”? That is the website where would store all of the pictures, writings, audio recordings, video recordings, and serve as the archives of Oliver’s Life. One thousand years from now the digital artifacts of Oliver’s life can be preserved and made available to someone living on Mars. How cool is that?

How Cool is That?

Gathering all of Oliver’s digital data together and putting it at his own website subdomain in the cloud is just the beginning. We will perform artifact handling workflow steps that are different for each kind of artifact. 

A Built-in Workflow Manager

Your DSN and my DSN contain a workflow manager. They can interact with your DSN. When your Todo List receives an action request, a task is created in your Todo List to assign the who, what, where, when, and why. Sometimes the same basic workflow decision steps are performed by you and your computer.

 will be followed for the audio recordings made by Mom and other family members. I could store digitan copies of anything in the Oliver archives to my archive website. Subject to sharing permissions, everyone can have the same digital media at their respective websites. The workflow will complete the copying step using workflow automata. 

CAR-1120-01-Dear-Sister-Your-DSN-Website Money Flow adds value to the pricing equation in these ways

  1. The consumer subscribes to the for $24 per month (retail cost)
  2. subscribes to the CCX Core at $12 per month (wholesale cost) and adds value.
  3. ends up with $12 per month net income to be divided according to its money flow distribution pattern.
  4. As an example money flow distribution pattern, consider how might divide the $12 per month. $1 per month sales commission goes to the Sales Agent who made the sale. The rest of the $12 per month covers overhead, operating costs, capital investor ROI, time investor ROI, and your profit.

Sell Physical and Digital Assets

You can have an auction capability available with your DSN. Were you to want such a thing to be available to you, it is an easy matter. I could write a computer program where, at a click of your pointer you could have a WooCommerce Store where you could buy and sell products. It would take a few minutes at most to plugin a collection of new DSN features that would help you fulfill your imagination.

Lyno Project Artifact Types and Workflows

  • Oliver Library – Oliver is Lyno’s father and teacher throughout life. By virtue of a long story I, Lyno, came by the remaining collection of the books that Oliver read over his lifetime. Oliver summarized each book at the front and sometimes he added margin notes. There is a large overhead scanning effort for these book covers and annotated pages. Then the books may be auctioned off through the store and others will be retained in the main library.
  • Various family records of ancestors related to me by genealogical bloodlines require scanning of Mother Helen and her sister Phylis’s work on tracing the family tree. They corresponded with letters with the keepers of various records of births, deaths and marriages in England, Ireland, and Scotland. There is a overhead scanning workflow that ends up in a subsequent genealogy workflow.
  • Various collections of interesting magazines and books from the 70’s. Through the tech bubble burst of the 2000’s and through the technology years and beyond. These magazines will go through a subsidiary workflow
    • scan ISBN
    • record condition of book or magazine
    • enter target recipient email address
    • enter target physical delivery address
  • Collections of vinyl and other analog media going back to mono reel to reel tape, as well as digital media
  • Nested directories of massively duplicated files
  • Directories filled with digital photographs
  • Movies needing editing
  • Disk drives needing data recovery (SCSI, PCI bus)

Archivist Duties and Responsibilities

Preserve Collections

Archive Project leaders and members are responsible for preserving materials correctly. They select archival conservation and storage techniques. In general equipment is cataloged and stored in electrostatic drives. If archive materials require specific environmental conditions, then the archivists will recommend risks and solutions. Lyno or his designee will make final decisions.
