My Response to Large Quantity of Comments

May 31, 2019

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.

Disaster Seminar 16 — Backup Programs

May 27, 2019

I am using a great backup program.

1. It places my data on a portable hard drive.

2. It automatically backs up my machine.

3. It is easy to access my data.

This is not a great choice.

1. Your machine breaks, you may have to buy
a new backup program.

2. You need at least two copies of
your backup files at different locations.

My Invitation To You

May 24, 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, http://www.whatifwe.com and they are
well documented.

Disaster Seminar 15 — A Great Backup Service

May 20, 2019

I am already using a great backup service

1. My machine is automatically backed up over the internet

2. My data is cryptographically secure.

3. I have plenty of space available.

4. It is easy to get my data.

Wrong Choice!

1. Loss of internet means loss of service.

2. A disaster at the backup company site means loss of service.

3. NSA can break the crypto algorithm.

4. Company tech can probable access your data.

Limitation to My Response to Your Comments

May 17, 2019

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

Do I really need to have a flash drive copy

It is very important to backup your data.

It can solve a great many problems.

Unfortunately, it is not a good means
of using your friend’s machine to perform
your critical tasks.

Let us develop some disaster related backup
methods.

My Problems With LinkedIn.

May 10, 2019

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.

Disaster Seminar 13 — Current Data Solution

May 6, 2019

A Flash Drive will make your data available to another machine

1. All of the your data folders must be on the flash drive

2. Every time you work on your data, update the flash drive.

3. Keep the flash drive in your pocket.

Sounds like a lot of work!

It isn’t as much as you think.

Also, please keep in mind that not having your data
will create a lot more work.

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.
