in the associated Toastmasters speech

TOASTMASTERS—RELATIVITY

SPEECH 7B (“SECTION 5 – A NEW DISCOVERY?”) Was reviewed. The
pictures were good enough for presentation. The next step will be to convert
the second example pictures for inserting them into the book.

ISO9001 BASED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING

September 18, 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?

How I Protect My Proprietary Data

September 16, 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.

My research and development activities produces a large
quantity of proprietary data. How do I protect this data?
Simple! I do not publish it on my blog or any other web-sites.

The purpose of “reporting my activity” involves establishing
the date at which a particular task was accomplished. The
task is sufficiently identified to enable me to identify
the associated proprietary data and daily log which is
stored on my machines, flash drives, and DVD’s.

Also, please let me remind you that when your machine is
not connected to the internet, hackers cannot access your
machine.

My Comment Approval Criteria

September 14, 2018

Every day I receive between 50 and 100 comments requesting approval. There is only one of me managing the blog and hence must perform this function quickly and efficiently. To this end, each comment must:

1. Have a text message. For the most part, a comment with no text message will be deleted.

2. Be written in English using real words. I am not familiar with text message abbreviations.

3. Adhere to the basic principles of civilized behavior (I have had not problems with this so far).

4. Be consistent to the associated post and the purpose of the blog.

5. Be short. If it is over ten lines, I will delete it.

6. Not advertise any product, service or cause. I have been receiving a lot of promotions of solar panels for generating electric power which I have permanently deleted.

Thank You

The Deming Cycle — Everyone Should Know It.

September 11, 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 8.1 — Tools Help Make The Software Engineer

September 10, 2018

With the right development program, you can develop Error
Free Software.

There are some historical examples of this truth.

In the early 1960’s, Fortran was a major computing languages.

The Fortran compiler had a never ending bug list.

PL/1, the next major language, was far more reliable.

I used it at Lockheed for over five years and never encountered
any errors.

PL/I was designed in strict compliance with the principles of
simple precedence.

WhatifWe127 Blog — Web Browser Inquiries

September 8, 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.

My Response to Large Quantity of Comments

September 7, 2018

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.
