Picture has been quality adjusted.
We want to wish a very Happy Birthday to James E. Arconati. Here is a picture from his birthday last year, where we ate at a very fancy restaurant. In fact, Dad even got a visit from the very famous master chef to wish him a very happy birthday and give him a sloppy wet kiss. Who could it be?
I got an email about the following quote in the October 2006 issue of Digital Transactions Magazine
It’s not just having the technology in place to identify a problem, but having the personnel that understand what the technical indicators mean,says James [E.] Arconati, business leader, capacity management at MasterCard.The problem may not lie on the hardware where it was spotted, but perhaps in a specific set of transactions or card types.
It also can be centered on a specific time of day, such as when batch users access the network.There has to be a holistic, proactive approach to managing a network,says Arconati.
Digital Transactions is an industry-trade journal devoted to
trends in the electronic exchange of value. The October 2006 issue features this quote in an article titled Heading Off the Traffic Jam. It’s a discussion about the rapid growth in electronic transactions.

Arconati.com seems to have finally launched an actual web site. The domain is not owned by our American family, but by an Italian company known as the Palladium Group. Though there wasn’t anything found at this site except the standard construction page as recently as Sep 26, 2004 & Jan 29, 2005, the current page is a marked improvement and even includes some links to English versions of the page.
Villa Arconati is a magnificent mansion from the 17th and 18th centuries with landscaped grounds of 200 hectares.
Today, Reese Arconati began second grade at Parker Road Elementary. Olivia will also be attending school in Early Childhood Education.
In 1995, Arnold Vincent Arconati* wrote a Doctoral Thesis for the University of Missouri at Rolla.
The application of Markov state probabilities in developing artificially intelligent managerial strategies: a case study based on major league baseball – by Arnold V. Arconati
From what I can tell it appears to be an interesting scientific paper on the case study of replacing a team’s owner or manager with a computer and how well the artificial intelligence might do. I see there might be lots of applications of this from a better understanding of management and leadership in general to practical applications in sports video games and other areas for artificial intelligence.
* Arnold is one of my father’s cousins.
We have an important announcment:
