CODEPLEX SHUTDOWN.

March 17, 2018

For many years, I have used the Microsoft Codeplex site for my Programable
Software Development Environment project from which my current tools
could be downloaded.

Microsoft will shut down CodePlex in month of December and will no longer
be able to contain updated versions of my tools in October. There may
be another site which will replace CodePlex.

You can always my current Software Development tools from my website,

The Deming Cycle — Everyone Should Know It.

March 14, 2018

The Deming Cycle, the historical basis for all Quality
Assurance Programs, helped Japan to recover after World
War II.

The Deming Cycle consists of four steps: Plan, Do, Check
the Results, and Alter the Plan if necessary.

The Deming Cycle is a good definition of common sense.
I have used it on many occasions without knowing it.

When applying the Deming Cycle, when do we learn new and
better ways of doing our task?

We learn during the fourth step of the Deming Cycle when
we Alter our Plan.

WHATIFWE were all taught the Deming Cycle as a part of
our public education?

Life of A Programmer — Session 1.1 — Are You A Software Engineer?

March 13, 2018

Your interest in this seminar tells me that you have programming experience

You probably have a college degree in information technology or related subject.

You may have a software engineering job or are looking for one.

But are you a software engineer?

WhatifWe127 Blog — Web Browser Inquiries

March 11, 2018

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.

Limitation to My Response to Your Comments

March 10, 2018

Every day I receive between 50 and 100 comments. Many of these comments request information or advise from me.

I appreciate the honor of your request for information.

Unfortunately, there is only one of me managing and writing the blog. Consequently, I simply do not have enough time to reply to each of your questions.

There are many comments that ask the same question. In these situations where I have the information, I will provide my knowledge in a post, time permitting.

I will respond to any comment made by a person who is experimenting with my software development tools.

Thank You

The Computer Wisdom of Bugs Bunny

March 7, 2018

Do you remember the Bug’s Bunny cartoon where he pops out of the ground
in the middle of the desert and says “I think that I should have turned
left at Albuquerque”?

Mistakes always happen; some because of stupidity, some because of greed;
some because the required knowledge was not available, and some because
we are just human beings.

We are currently experiencing a great many security problems due to
hackers.

The basic computer design that makes this possible has a common program
and data buss. Hackers can cause their program to be loaded on the target
machine via this common buss.

In the late 1970’s, there was a different computer design, the Harvard
Architecture with separate data and program busses. This architecture
cannot be hacked.

About 1985, the microprocessor became practical and the Harvard
Architecture became obsolete.

“Did we turn right at Albuquerque in error”? I believe so. Could
have avoided it? I think not. We could not have predict the future.

Should we re-vitalize the Harvard Architecture? I think the benefits
would greatly out-weigh the costs.

The Rules of Physic — a proposed Abstract.

March 6, 2018

My research efforts from 1985 (Oslo) to 1991 (Lille)
raised more question than it answered. Recently, I was
able to resolve these questions.

I have prepared a rather radical rough-draft article that
I am hoping that I can get published. The abstractMy research efforts from 1985 (Oslo) to 1991 (Lille)

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

TITLE: The Rules Of Physics

1.0 ABSTRACT.

Physics is a study of repeatable measurements which are for all intents
and purposes made by light. Each observer “owns” the light beams
associated with his observations and measurements and the velocity of
light is independent of the relative velocity of object being observed.

Each observer has access to exactly one coordinate system, his own.
Access to another observer’s coordinate system is made by a
communication instrumentation process which is accomplished by light.

Finally, mathematics is the language that defines the communication
between observers. It is not an expression of the truth from absolute
point of view.

I believe that these are the rules that define the field of physics.
Furthermore, I believe these rules may result in the discovery that an
object can have a velocity greater than light.

The Purpose of My Blog

March 4, 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.

I subsequently expanded the purpose of my blog to encourage
others to improve their skills by conducting their own
regular experimental process.

I became a software engineer in 1966 due to an experiment
that I had performed. I have never taken a course in
Software Engineering. You are encouraged to take a similar
path. If my tools can be of any benefit, they can be
downloaded free-of-charge from my web-site, http://www.whatifwe.com

My Problems With LinkedIn.

March 3, 2018

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.
