APPLE PORTABILITY PROJECT

Last Saturday, I called Apple customer service. They helped me to
reconfigure the TextEdit utility to function in a strict ASCII format.
There is still a tab issue to be solved; however, today I successfully
used the TextEdit utility to upgrade the Typedefs software parts library
to include a software part to read the number of typedefs and to routine
the typedef alias associated with a specific index.

Software Engineers are Quality Assurance Managers

November 14, 2017

Have you ever noticed that Quality Assurance, ISO-9001,
and the Deming Cycle is taught only in Business Administration?

I have found that when Quality Assurance was taught in Engineering
Schools, it was in Engineering Management Classes.

Is Quality Assurance just an Engineering Management Problem? Is
a Software Engineer a Quality Assurance Manager?

Computer Programs are special Deming Plans to be Done at the
client’s site by a computer not by a human being.

Software Engineers are, in reality, Quality Assurance Managers.
For the most part, they do not realize this fact.

WHATIFWE taught Quality Assurance, ISO-9001, and the Deming
Cycle to all Engineers in our Engineering Schools?

WhatifWe127 Blog — Web Browser Inquiries

November 12, 2017

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.

My Problems With LinkedIn.

November 11, 2017

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.

Blog Alerts May Become Annoying

November 4, 2017

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.

ELEMENT SOFTWARE PARTS LIBRARY

The element software parts library passed the certification test on the LINUX
machine. Performing this test on the Windows and Apple machine is the
next task.

ELEMENT SOFTWARE PARTS LIBRARY

The element software parts library passed the certification test on the Windows
machine. The software parts associated with the Array software parts library
have been modified to use the element parts library

ELEMENT SOFTWARE PARTS LIBRARY

It has been determined that the processing of arrays was best accomplished by
the structure software parts library. The preparation of the structure software
parts library has been started.
