PORTABILITY PROJECT

A windows version of the stndpcg executable has
been prepared and tested using the the Windows
gcc compiler/ link editor. The next task is to
prepare an equivalent make file for the apple machine.

RELATIVITY BOOK / TOASTMASTERS

I have been using Toastmasters as an experimental laboratory for developing
my book. The evaluation of my last speech suggested a significant update
to make my “speed of light” discovery more understandable. Today, I
discovered a possible understandable example, namely a traffic signal.
Specifically, how does the signal behave when the vehicle velocity is
greater than the speed of light? I plan to make another speech.

PORTABILITY PROJECT

A successful stndpcg make file has been made for apple machine.
It was successfully used to prepare a functioning apple stndpcg
executable. The stndpcg program is now completely portable
between the Windows, Linux and Windows machine. The next
task will be to make the explrpde portable.

The Experimental Process — Any One Can do It!

June 19, 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 5.2 — You are a Quality Assurance Manager

June 18, 2018

Q.A. is a management activity. It is taught in Business
Administration.

You have a college degree in Software Engineering, not
Business Administration.

In spite of all of this, you are still a Quality Assurance
Manager.

The Deming Cycle is the historical basis for all Quality
Assurance Programs.

It basically consists of the following four steps: Plan,
Do, Check the Results, and Analyze the Results.

A computer program is a very special Deming Plan to be
performed at the Client’s site on a computer.

WhatifWe127 Blog — Web Browser Inquiries

June 16, 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.

My Problems With LinkedIn.

June 15, 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.

ISO9001 BASED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING

June 12, 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?

You are a software engineer. You work for a great software
development company.

Would you believe it if I told you that you are a Quality
Assurance Manager.

You don’t believe it! I don’t blame you.

Administration.

You have a college degree in Software Engineering, not

The Purpose of My Blog

June 10, 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

Blog Alerts May Become Annoying

June 8, 2018

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.

COMMON CLASS STRUCT LIBRARY

The functional tests of the CommonClassStruct library have been successfully
completed. The certification tests which include error detection will now be
started.

2018/05/29

COMMON CLASS LIBRARIES

A common problem throughout all of the commonclass libraries is the enforcement
of unique alias names. For example, a typedef alias name cannot subsequently used
to define a structure. A unique enforcement technique is to add additional descriptive
characters. For example the typedef name “name” would be in reality name_typedef.
This enforcement technique will be implemented. The certification tests for the
CommonClassStruct will be delayed until these modifications are completed.

2018/06/06

COMMON CLASS LIBRARIES

The unique alias enforcement problem has been solved by using a layered library
methodology. Adding additional text to the alias name was not necessary.
Some minor modifications to the CommonClassStruct will be implemented next.
