1988 IMACS World Congress In Paris, France

July 22, 2014

In 1988, I presented my third article on my personally
funded research at the IMACS World Congress In Paris,
France. I performed my computer simulations on
my personal Heathkit H89 computer.

I have attached a scanned copy of this thee page article to
this post. I was on vacation. My employer assisted with
the travel costs.

Please may I remind you that companies and organizations do
not make discoveries and inventions; Individuals do. May I
encourage you to turn off the TV set and work on your own
personal research project.

My Problems With LinkedIn.

July 22, 2014

I need to alert everyone that I do not have a working LinkedIn system.

I have made several attempts at correcting the problems without success.

People trying to connect with me on LinkedIn will be unsuccessful, no
matter how much I want to connect with them.

1987 IMACS European Congress In Prague. Czechoslovakia

July 13, 2014

In 1987, I presented my second article on my personally
funded research at the IMACS European Congress In Prague.
Czechoslovakia. I performed my computer simulations on
my personal Heathkit H89 computer.

I have attached a scanned copy of this five page article to
this post. Prague was communist at that time and it amazed
the attendees that I could perform my research on my own
time and money. I took vacation time to attend the conference.

Please may I remind you that companies and organizations do
not make discoveries and inventions; Individuals do. May I
encourage you to turn off the TV set and work on your own
personal research project.

Blog Alerts May Become Annoying

July 12, 2014

Placing a request to be alerted when I make a post is not the best way to keep track of my activity.

I have made a lot of posts. Some of them are research reports which are individually written with the aid of my Programmable Software Development Tool. Others such as the seminars have been written some time ago and are periodically posted on my blog. Frequently, I will make as many as three posts on a single day.

As a consequence, you are going to get a lot of alerts which may become annoying to you.

Please may I suggest a better way of keeping track of my activities.

I recommend that you follow me on Twitter (@whatifwe2048). You will see that my tweets are the titles of my blog posts in the order of occurrence. You can then easily select the ones that you wish to read,

This approach will give you greater control over your internet traffic.

Developing a Website using a software parts library

July 11, 2014

The activity associated with development of a software parts library
for the development of a web-site will be presented here. This will be
an extension of the library used to prepare Programmable Software
Development Environment manual.

This effort was started a long time ago following the development of
the manual software parts library. Its purpose was to eliminate the
need for Front Page. It was subsequently put on hold so that other
more important efforts could proceed.

Mr. Mike is a long time professional friend of mine who has recently
offered to reconstruct my Web-Site. I told him my plan to use my tool
to rebuild my site. He has had difficulties relating to my technology
(It is quite different than normal programming methods) and I am not
really skilled in Web-site design. We both felt that this might a great
opportunity to make the technical connection.

FRIDAY: 2014/07/11

STATUS: I delayed the preliminary development of the website group
section HTML software parts library due to a CSS problem; namely, the
generation of the CSS output files took a long time.

DETAIL: The CSS Output Files are generated using the script library.
This was needed because the CSS file commands are not nested (one
contained inside another) where the HTML file commands are. To maintain
strict format similarities, both input source files have a nested
format. The script library allows me to properly format the CSS files.
Unfortunately, this slows down the output file generation.

RESULTS: I re-examined the CSS output file library and found the script
was inefficiently used. I made the obvious modifications and the speed
of the process was considerably improved.

NEXT TASK: I will restart the preliminary development of the website
group section HTML software parts library.

1985 IMACS World Congress In Oslo, Norway

July 5, 2014

In 1985, I presented my first article on my personally
funded research at the IMACS World Congress at Oslo, Norway.
I performed my computer simulations on my personal Heathkit
H89 computer.

I have attached a scanned copy of this four page article to
this post.

Please may I remind you that companies and organizations do
not make discoveries and inventions; Individuals do. May I
encourage you to turn off the TV set and work on your own
personal research project.

Resume Preparation: A Gigantic “Plumbing” Project

July 5, 2014

We all understand a Plumbing Project. This where a supposedly
simple task become a massive, complex effort.

One of the common “Plumbing Projects” in today’s environment
is the preparation of a resume.

Each resume must be customized to the target audience. This
effort usually takes several hours to complete.

Resumes are always needed: Job searches, contracts, professional
network, and volunteering activities.

The resume effort is made more complex due to the need to paste
it into a web-site window, discovered usually at the last moment.

I have been using my Programmable Software Development Environment
to maintain its manual. Its use has greatly simplified this task.

WHATIFWE used the Programmable Software Development Environment
to develop resumes? Would it help? Yes it does!

UPDATED VERSION AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD

July 1, 2014

The _ERROR command has been updated so that during a test project, an _ERROR command with the optional Name parameter will continue executing the test project if the terminating comment is a date. If the terminating comment is missing or has the
break-point symbol (<—-), it will terminate execution. The error message will be displayed in all cases. This modification will formalize the _ERROR checkout/test process defined by the test project.

As before, The Linux executable must be prepared through a make process; All of the files have been provided in the source directory.

This upgrade will be found in the version 3 downloads contained in my website. All versions can be found PROGRAMMABLE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
ENVIRONMENT in http://www.codeplex.com.

Also, if a WIN32 version was downloaded before 1800 Pacific Standard Time, please downloaded it again.

software parts associated with the website group section.

NEXT TASK: The preliminary development of the HTML software parts
associated with the website group section will now be started.

 

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

June 28, 2014

The overall purpose of the current Programmable Software Development
Environment upgrade process is to certify that a product generated is
certifiably releasable.

To certify a software parts library, every command except the _ERROR
command defining a library must respond to a ‘<—’ debug flag comment
at the end of a the command line. Specifically, when the debug flag is
present, the subject command will be executed first and then the
command data (command, arguments, and results) will be displayed and
then the operator will be given a option of terminated execution or
continuing.

The _ERROR command must be corrected to equivalently respond to the
debug flag.

The major difference between the _ERROR command and all other commands
is that the debug flag will be processed before the command is executed.

The Programmable Software Development Environment will be modified so
that the _ERROR command will respond to the debug flag before
terminating execution.

FRIDAY 2014/06/27

STATUS: The manual description of the __GET_ERROR_MACRO and
_GET_ERROR_TYPE commands have been successfully modified.

RESULTS: The manual descriptions for the Error Message Command Group
have now been updated,

NEXT TASK: The revised Programmable Software Development Environment
will now be prepared for publication.
