My Invitation To You

September 30, 2014

I became a software engineer in 1966 due to an experiment
that I had performed. I have never taken a course in
Software Engineering. Over the years, I have continued
to experiment on my own time and have greatly benefited
from this activity

In 1992, I became a home based software development business.
I developed a set of tools to aid me in my business activities.
These tools evolved over time and are now capable of helping
a software engineer to become a better, more competitive programmer.

I invite you to take a similar path. My tools can be downloaded
free-of-charge from my web-site, http://www.whatifwe.com and they are
well documented.

1991 IMACS Symposium MCTS Casablanca relocated Lille, France

September 28, 2014

In 1991, I presented my fourth article on my personally
funded research at the IMACS Symposium MCTS Casablanca
relocated Lille, France. I performed my computer
simulations on my personal computer.

I have attached a scanned copy of this five 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.

Software “Breaks”!

September 28, 2014

A 17 year old sailor on a submarine must be able to
fix a critical piece of electronic equipment within
15 minutes.

Critical submarine hardware has the required subsystems
to facilitate the location of a failed replaceable components.

Most hardware these days has at least one computer within it.
This includes critical submarine systems.

Can the same 17 year old sailor on a submarine find and
correct a critical software failure within 15 minutes?

Does software “break”? Not really. but software fails when
it illegally or incorrectly writes some data.

Programmers have many ways of preventing illegal writes which
they use in checkout and then remove before delivery.

WHATIFWE used formal illegal write prevention code in delivered
software?

1988 IMACS World Congress In Paris, France

September 27, 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.

WhatifWe127 — My Internet Interface

September 27, 2014

Hopefully, this post will answer many of the questions that I have received about the Internet services that I am receiving.

First, please understand that I do not have a team. There is one of me and I am home based.

My Internet service is provided by Earthlink.

Recently I changed from DSL to a cable Internet communication process due to a major regional outage.

My blog is provided by the free WordPress site which may or may not add some advertising.

I also have a whatifwe Codeplex site and and a @whatifwe2048 Twitter site.

I designed my Website using Microsoft Front Page.

I have successfully accessed my web-site and blog on a LINUX, WINDOWS, and MAC machine.

Developing a Website using a software parts library

September 26, 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: 2014/09/26

STATUS: The development and functional tests of the Horizontal Group section parts have been completed.

DETAIL: Four software parts were developed: 1) _WEBSITE_HTML_LEFT_BEGIN, 2) _WEBSITE_HTML_LEFT_END, 3) _WEBSITE_HTML_RIGHT_BEGIN, and 4) _WEBSITE_HTML_RIGHT_END. Functional tests were performed for all combinations of the Print/NoPrint states.

NEXT TASK: The following three sets of software parts are needed to complete this project: 1) Headers, 2) Text Lines and paragraphs, and 3) Table of contents. I will be examining the Header software parts requirement next

1987 IMACS European Congress In Prague. Czechoslovakia

September 24, 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.

The Role of the Media

September 24, 2014

Both the incompetent and the competent benefit from
media attention.

The competent leader requires community participation.
The media helps him to obtain the participants.

The incompetent needs 15 minutes of fame. The media
helps him to satisfy his greedy goals.

Unfortunately the entertainment associated with the
incompetent attracts a lot of media attention.

The competent pioneer finds new solutions to current
problems.

WHATIFWE were to provide the media attention needed
to develop hope from the new ideas of the competent
pioneers?

1985 IMACS World Congress In Oslo, Norway

September 23, 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.

WhatifWe127 Blog — Web Browser Inquiries

September 23, 2014

There have been many comments and inquiries relative to Web
Browser and Display format problems relative to my blog and
website. I appreciate your comments but I do not have sufficient
time to individually respond to them. I have prepared this
post that will hopefully provide some answers.

Relative to the blog, I use the free Word Press blog site.
The only thing that I prepare is the text. I don’t have any
videos. I do attach pdf files containing my articles. I must
assume that WordPress is up-to-date relative to the various
Web Browsers and Displays. I have absolutely no control over
the format.

Relative to my website, I designed it a number of years ago
using Microsoft Front Page which is now obsolete. I would
assume that it would not behave properly on some of the newer
Web Browsers and Displays. I am currently redesigning it
using the CSS technology. I am using this need as a means of
building standard Web Site development kits and I cannot
at this time predict when this will be completed.
