I also liked Quick Books.

4. There was no Linux Version.

Then my machine broke.

3. Open Office proved to be the solution

a. There was a version for both Windows and Linux

b. The downloads were free of charge.

c. The files are identical on both machines.

My Invitation To You

July 3, 2020

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.

Limitation to My Response to Your Comments

June 26, 2020

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

I appreciate the honour 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

Blog Alerts May Become Annoying

June 12, 2020

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.

Disaster Seminar 8 — Disaster Preparation Requirements

June 1, 2020

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.
