The Role of the Media

November 13, 2015

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?

WhatifWe127 Blog — Web Browser Inquiries

November 10, 2015

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.

Disaster Seminar 9 — Application Disaster Crisis

November 10, 2015

A broken machine means new application software.

1. New machine has new, different operating system

2. Your original software will probably not work.

3. New Windows based software is expensive.

4. Even an upgrade is expensive.

Two machines will need two copies of the same software

1. Copyright rules limited use on several machines.

How do we economically replace software on

1. A Replacement machine?

2. The two machines needed to rapid disaster recovery?

Monte-Carlo Test Method

November 10, 2015

A Number of years ago, I had a contract to build a hardware
control sub-system software product.

This hardware control sub-system was designed to control
legacy hardware shipped back from the Middle East.

This legacy hardware appeared to have not been well-maintained;
it needed a lot of service.

I was afraid that I might break this hardware when I tested my
hardware control sub-system software product.

I developed a Monte-Carlo Simulator/Stimulator Test System to
validate my hardware control sub-system product.

The Monte-Carlo technology is based on a pseudo-random generator.
It was originally used in the development of nuclear weapons.

The random nature of my Monte-Carlo Test System enabled me to
rapidly and thoroughly test the hardware control sub-system, both
from a user and hardware point-of-view.

The use of a Monte-Carlo Simulator/Stimulator Test System
enabled me to deliver an error-free software product.

WHATIFWE used Monte-Carlo software test methods for all software.
Would we get better products?

Disaster Seminar 8 — Disaster Preparation Requirements

November 8, 2015

Please keep in mind that:

1. Both machines will probably not be broken at the same time

2. A notebook can operate without 110 volt power.

3. A notebook can be recharged in your car.

As a consequence, to Minimize the impact of a computer failure,

1. The same applications must be on both machines.

2. Current Data must be on both machines.
