Hayes Conference Centre
The Hayes Conference Centre is a group of buildings in Swanwick, UK which are used for conferences and other functions. The building which now houses the centre's reception was built in the 1850s as a private residence and named Swanwick Hayes. Since the early 1910 however it has taken up its current usage, apart from the Second World War years when it was a POW camp for German and Italian prisoners, it was the second camp to fail to hold the famous German escapee Franz von Werra. The escape tunnel can still be seen at the conference centre; the centre, which has had many additions to it since it opened, provides sleeping accommodation for up to 400 people in 274 rooms. Most rooms are en-suite though an decreasing number have shared washing and toilet facilities. There are two main dining rooms and full-time catering staff work there alongside cleaners and other workers. There are 30 rooms designed to hold meetings in; the largest two hold 420 and 400 with two other large ones holding 150 and 140.
Other facilities include a bar, small gift shop, five a side football pitches, a games room and a chapel with room for 350. There are internet access points in many of the rooms. Most of the clients using this 90-acre estate are Christian groups, as the centre has been run by the Christian Conference Trust since 1996. In addition, the centre is home to the Swanwick writers' summer school; as well as providing locations the trust can help organise the conferences at Hayes, its sister site High Leigh in Hoddesdon. The Midland Railway - Butterley and Chatsworth House are local tourist attractions, it is located just five miles from the M1 motorway and three miles from Alfreton railway station.

Hayes Microcomputer Products
Hayes Microcomputer Products was a U. S.-based manufacturer of modems. The company is well known for the Smartmodem, which introduced a control language for operating the functions of the modem via the serial interface, in contrast to manual operation with front-panel switches; this smart modem approach simplified and automated operation. Today all modems use a variant of the Hayes command set. Hayes was a major brand in the modem market from the introduction of the original 300 bit/s Smartmodem in 1981, was known for high quality products, they remained a major vendor throughout the 1980s, periodically introducing models with higher throughput. In the early 1990s a number of cost-reduced high-performance modems were released by competitors, notably the SupraFAXModem 14400, which eroded price points in the market. Hayes was never able to respond effectively; the widespread introduction of ADSL and cable modems in the mid-1990s drove the company in Chapter 11 protection before being liquidated in 1999.
Dennis C. Hayes left the Georgia Institute of Technology in the mid-1970s to work at an early data communications company, National Data Corp, a company that handled electronic money transfers and credit card authorizations. Hayes' job was to set up modem connections for NDC's customers. At the time, modems came in two versions, one for the end-user that required the user to dial the phone manually and use an acoustic coupler for connection, another dedicated to answering incoming calls, intended for use on the minicomputer or mainframe the user was calling into; the connection and disconnection was manual, with the user picking up the phone's handset, dialing manually, pressing the handset into the coupler if a carrier frequency was heard. Disconnecting at the end of the session was manual, with the user lifting the handset out of the coupler and hanging it up on the phone body in order to depress the hook switch and return the phone to the on-hook state and end the call. There were optional systems to dial the phone or pick it up, but these were implemented as separate devices intended to be used on one end of the connection or the other.
For instance, the autodialler was a system that automated the action of picking up the phone and dialing a number, was implemented as a separate box that connected to another port on the host computer. Such devices were expensive and used by larger organizations like banks, who might use one to send an end-of-day file to branch offices. Hayes was a computer hobbyist, felt that modems would be compelling to users of the new 8-bit computers that would soon be known as home computers. However, existing modems were too expensive and difficult to use or be practical for most users. What was needed was a single modem that could do it all; the main problem with producing such a modem was forwarding commands from the computer. This could be addressed in internal modems; such modems had access to the computer's main memory, by dedicating certain memory locations to various status readouts or commands, software programs running on the computer could control the modem. This was a straightforward and thus a popular solution.
Hayes started producing similar products at a "hobby level" in his kitchen in April 1977 with his friend and co-worker, Dale Heatherington. Their first product was a 300 bit/s Bell 103-compatible design for S-100 bus machines. Business picked up and in January 1978 they quit their jobs at National Data to form their own company, D. C. Hayes Associates. Sales were further improved in early 1979 with the introduction of the 300 bit/s Micromodem 100 for S-100 bus computers and the Micromodem II for the Apple II that used an external "microcoupler" to connect to telephone lines. In 1980 the company changed its name to Hayes Microcomputer Products, under which it operated for most of its history. Although powerful, the internal modem was commercially impractical. Not only did it require special driver software, but a different hardware design was needed for every computer bus, including Apple II, S-100, TRS-80, others; some popular computers, like the Atari 400, did not integrate internal slots. An obvious solution was to use the RS-232 serial port.
Hayes and the company's marketing manager Glenn Sirkis approached Heatherington with an outline for a new command-driven external modem. A few external modems offered the ability to dial the phone by entering a phone number when the modem was first started, but the real problem was somehow sending a command to hang up, while the modem was connected. There needed to be some way to indicate that the characters flowing out from the computer to the modem were not additional data to be sent to the far end, but commands to be acted on. Several solutions to the problem were studied, in the end Heatherington decided the only practical one was to have the modem operate in two modes. In one, data mode, all data forwarded from the computer were modulated and sent over the connected telephone line as it was with any other modem. In the other, command mode, data forwarded from the computer were instead interpreted as commands. In this way, the modem could be instructed by the computer to perform various operations, such as hang up the phone or dial a number.

The Hayes River is a river in Northern Region, Canada that flows from Molson Lake to Hudson Bay at York Factory. It was an important river in the development of Canada, is today a Canadian Heritage River and the longest flowing river in Manitoba; the river begins at an elevation of 221 metres at Molson Lake, about 90 kilometres northeast of the northern tip of Lake Winnipeg. A tributary of Molson Lake, Paimusk Creek, begins less than 3 kilometres east of the Nelson River, it flows north and northeast to Robinson Lake about 16 kilometres northeast. Just before reaching Robinson Lake the Echimamish River comes in from the west; this curious river connects directly to the Nelson River and was used by the voyageurs to travel from York Factory on Hudson Bay, up the Hayes and across to the Nelson and downstream to Norway House, Manitoba, at the north end of Lake Winnipeg. Northeast of Robinson Lake is Robinson Falls and the mile-long Robinson portage, the longest portage between Hudson Bay and Edmonton.
Somewhere in this area is a mile-long narrow gorge. Beyond this it cuts across Logan Lake, passes the settlement of Wetikoweskwattam to Opiminegoka Lake, where it takes the northeast-flowing Lawford River, flows through Windy Lake and over Wipanipanis Falls to Oxford Lake at a point about 80 kilometres northeast of its source at Molson Lake, it flows out of the lake at Oxford House southeast over Trout Falls to Knee Lake. Exiting Knee Lake, the Hayes passes over a series of rapids and via several channels and widens into Swampy Lake. At the east end of Swampy Lake, about 200 kilometres northeast of Molson Lake and 240 kilometres from Hudson bay is the Dramstone where west-bound travelers took a dram to celebrate leaving the most difficult part of the river. Including the rapids downstream from Knee Lake, in a 80-kilometre stretch the Hayes loses 5/7ths of its elevation in 1/6 of its length. From Swampy Lake it runs through a stretch of constant rapids, past Brassy Hill, rising 140 metres above the river, takes in the right tributary High Hill River.
The river continues northeast through a small canyon for about 100 kilometres, therein passing over the Whitemud Falls and Berwick Falls, takes in the major left tributary Fox River at an elevation of 43 metres. The Hayes River continues northeast and takes in the major right tributary Gods River at an elevation of 24 metres, reaches its mouth at Hudson Bay to the south of the mouth of the larger Nelson River and to the north of the mouth of the smaller Machichi River. 200 kilometres upriver from York Factory was Rock Depot where York boats had to be replaced by smaller canoes. It was 425 kilometres from Rock Depot to Norway House. Different parts of the Hayes had different names. According to one source they were: "Hayes River" from the mouth to Gods River, "Steel River" to the Fox River, "Hill River" to Knee Lake, "Trout River" to Oxford Lake, above Oxford Lake, Weepinipanish River and Franklin's River. Another source has: Trout, Jack Tent, Steel and Hill Rivers, the Rivière du Roc; the river’s physical characteristics include whitewater rapids, large lake systems, deep valleys and gorges, as well as tidal flats.
It is 483 kilometres long, has a mean discharge of 590 cubic metres per second, its drainage basin covers 108,000 square kilometres. Long before Europeans came to Canada, Manitoba First Nations were using the Hayes River as ancient campsites according to pictographs, it traverses the traditional territory of four First Nations: Norway House Cree Nation, Bunibonibee Cree Nation, Shamattawa First Nation, York Factory Cree Nation. It continues to be an important source of traditional harvesting for the First Nations. After the arrival of Europeans in North America, the river became an important link in the development of Canada. In 1684, the Hayes River was named for Sir James Hayes, a Hudson's Bay Company charter member and secretary to Prince Rupert, by French trader/explorer Pierre Radisson. At its mouth, the HBC established York Factory in 1684, which served as its North American headquarters until 1957; the Hayes was the main route between York Factory and Norway House in the interior of the continent for explorers, fur traders and European settlers from 1670 to 1870.
To get to the Hayes from Norway House required a short trip down the Nelson River a turn onto the Echimamish River. The Echimamish River is a bifurcation river and connects two river systems, the Hayes River and the Nelson River; this route became the last leg of the York Factory Express known as "the Communication", once, established in the early 19th century, connecting the HBC regional headquarters of the Columbia District at Fort Vancouver to York Factory. The Hayes flows through some of the most pristine natural areas of Manitoba, it is home to polar bear, woodland caribou, the ivory gull, brook trout, beluga whales, bald eagles and moose, as well as a wide range of other wildlife. Traveling from south to north, its banks are lined with dense spruce forests, which change to a mosaic of stunted black spruce and bogs. Environmental assessments are being conducted in view of the construction of an all weather bridge north of Wipanipanis Falls where a winter road crosses the Hayes; the Hayes River became a Canadian Heritage River on June 11, 2006.
At the confluence of the God's and Hayes river is a marker to a young canoe guide that died at 22 years of age. There is a stone marker and a waterproof can in a grove of trees on the bluff for pe
