WhatifWe127 — My Internet Interface

April 6, 2019

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 @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

April 5, 2019
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, www.whatifwe.com and they are
well documented.

Software Engineers are Quality Assurance Managers

April 2, 2019
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?

Disaster Seminar 9 — Application Disaster Crisis

April 1, 2019
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?
