My Response to Large Quantity of Comments

March 31, 2018

I am the only one managing the blog and hence
have a limited amount of time to do so.

If there are less than 100 comments, I will examine
each comment to determine whether I will approve it
or delete it.

If there are more than 100 comments, I will examine
and approve comments according the following rules:

For each group of twenty comments, I will:
1. Find the first one that I can approve.
2. Approve the selected comment.
3. Delete the remaining 19 comments.

Thank You for your understanding.

four source files and their dependencies has been added to the list of the source files

RELATIVITY BOOK

The relativity book has been update from the speech that was given last Saturday

The Experimental Process — Any One Can do It!

March 28, 2018

Many years ago, there was the HeathKit company.

It had for sale various electronics kits.

They sold amateur radio, television, instrumentation kits.

I bought my first personal computer from them. It was a Heathkit H89.

That computer was the beginning of my personal research effort.

This computer resulted in three overseas conference publications.

I have never taken any course in software engineering or electronics.

I have learned everything through an extensive experimental effort.

Would you believe it if I told you that every person knows how
to experiment.

No! Let me show you that it is true.

As soon as a baby gains enough strength to roll over and get his
tummy off of the floor, he crawls around and gets into things.

What does he do with them? He puts them in his mouth.

Did you ever think that a baby’s mouth is his best instrument at birth?

It has to be! Otherwise he won’t be able to eat.

You are not a little green guy from outer space.

You were once a baby. When you started to crawl, you put things
into your mouth.

Therefore, you basically know how to experiment.

I rest my case.

Life of A Programmer — Session 1.3 — Are You A Software Engineer?

March 27, 2018

I used to know a software engineer who did not just “do it” at work.

He had significant personal accounting difficulties.

He occasionally would use hexadecimal numbers on the checks that he wrote.

Most assuredly, software engineering defined him as a person.

So I will again repeat my question. Are you a software engineer?

WhatifWe127 — My Internet Interface

March 25, 2018

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.

My Invitation To You

March 24, 2018

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.

MAKE FILE GENERATOR

The Make file generator program has been updated so that it will be able
to make the STNDPCG program. The Make file project will be updated
so that it will be exportable to the Apple Machine.

2018/03/20

MAKE FILE GENERATOR

The Make file project has been updated so that it can easily imported
to the Apple Machine. The preparation of the STNDPCG make file
will be started.

CLASS COMMON STRUCT PROJECT

A collection of prototype parts software parts for the classcommonstruct
library. The next task will be to prepare this prototype library.

ISO9001 BASED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING

March 21, 2018

To be strictly compliant with ISO9001, Programmers must use enforceable standard methods and processes.

Assembly Language Programmers used macros for common multi-instruction processes. These macros, once developed, were never changed.

Software “breaks fatally” when it illegally writes. The error cannot be fixed and it might take the machine down.

There are many error detection code segments that programmers use during checkout and then remove before delivery.

I developed a C++ Macro Preprocessor to provide a highly competent macro capability to facilitate using error detection code.

WHATIFWE used C++ Macro Preprocessor and its Macros to implement the Standards required by ISO9001?

Life of A Programmer — Session 1.2 — Are You A Software Engineer?

March 20, 2018

Are you a software engineer? This sounds like a really stupid question!

How can a person with a college degree in I.T not be a software engineer?

A software engineer is a person who is defined by software engineering.

A software engineer does not just “do it” at work.

So I will repeat my question. Are you a software engineer?

How I Protect My Proprietary Data

March 18, 2018

The original purpose of my blog was to provide me an easy
means of reporting my activity on my personally funded
research and development activities on error-free software
development methods.

My research and development activities produces a large
quantity of proprietary data. How do I protect this data?
Simple! I do not publish it on my blog or any other web-sites.

The purpose of “reporting my activity” involves establishing
the date at which a particular task was accomplished. The
task is sufficiently identified to enable me to identify
the associated proprietary data and daily log which is
stored on my machines, flash drives, and DVD’s.

Also, please let me remind you that when your machine is
not connected to the internet, hackers cannot access your
machine.
