Software “Breaks”!

June 11, 2015

A 17 year old sailor on a submarine must be able to
fix a critical piece of electronic equipment within
15 minutes.

Critical submarine hardware has the required subsystems
to facilitate the location of a failed replaceable components.

Most hardware these days has at least one computer within it.
This includes critical submarine systems.

Can the same 17 year old sailor on a submarine find and
correct a critical software failure within 15 minutes?

Does software “break”? Not really. but software fails when
it illegally or incorrectly writes some data.

Programmers have many ways of preventing illegal writes which
they use in checkout and then remove before delivery.

WHATIFWE used formal illegal write prevention code in delivered
software?

Resume Preparation: A Gigantic “Plumbing” Project

May 23, 2015

We all understand a Plumbing Project. This where a supposedly
simple task become a massive, complex effort.

One of the common “Plumbing Projects” in today’s environment
is the preparation of a resume.

Each resume must be customized to the target audience. This
effort usually takes several hours to complete.

Resumes are always needed: Job searches, contracts, professional
network, and volunteering activities.

The resume effort is made more complex due to the need to paste
it into a web-site window, discovered usually at the last moment.

I have been using my Programmable Software Development Environment
to maintain its manual. Its use has greatly simplified this task.

WHATIFWE used the Programmable Software Development Environment
to develop resumes? Would it help? Yes it does!

Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progres

April 30, 2015

The purpose of this update task is improve capability of the Programmable Software Development Environment to certify that a product is error free and functions according to specification.

The current version control defines the status of the software parts files. Specifically, the alpha version is still being tested; the beta version still has code that needs to be tested; and the release version has been completely tested.

A Programmable Software Development Environment equivalent to the First Article Test and the Factory Acceptance Test needs to be developed.

THURSDAY: 2015/04/30

STATUS: I have decided to replace the test random generator with the one used as a software parts resource.

RESULTS: Using my secure text library, I formally tested the pseudo-random software parts resources on both the WIN32 and LINUX systems and found that they produced identical results.

NEXT TASK: My next task will be to plan the associated upgrade to test task portion of the Programmable Software Development Environment.

Developing a Website using a software parts library

January 7, 2015

The activity associated with development of a software parts library
for the development of a web-site will be presented here. This will be
an extension of the library used to prepare Programmable Software
Development Environment manual.

This effort was started a long time ago following the development of
the manual software parts library. Its purpose was to eliminate the
need for Front Page. It was subsequently put on hold so that other
more important efforts could proceed.

Mr. Mike is a long time professional friend of mine who has recently
offered to reconstruct my Web-Site. I told him my plan to use my tool
to rebuild my site. He has had difficulties relating to my technology
(It is quite different than normal programming methods) and I am not
really skilled in Web-site design. We both felt that this might a great
opportunity to make the technical connection.

STATUS: The slow behavior of the CSS Software Parts Library is not
acceptable. Providing a trace display will not truely solve the problem.

DETAIL: The script library is capable functioning in a great deal of
circumstances; hence, there is a considerable amount of excessing
processing baggage. It will probably be necessary to add a set of
script instructions to the Programmable Software Development
Environment at a future time.

RESULTS: The use of the script software parts library must be
eliminated.

MY NEXT TASK: My next task will be to start the modifications to the
CSS output software parts library required to eliminate the use of the
script software parts library.

STATUS: The cause of the referenced error statement has been discovered
and a tentative solution has been found.

MR_MIKE_CONTRIBUTION:

DETAIL: When I upgraded the Programmable Software Development
Environment for the four versions (Experimental, Alpha, Beta, and
Release versions}, I did not consider the Include file. I was not
using these files at that time. The Include file is functional in the
Experimental version.

RESULTS: The slowness of the script software parts library has created
serious questions regarding the proper operation of the Programmable
Software Development Environment. The CSS Output software parts library
needs to be modified to prepare a visual output file generation
progress report.

NEXT TASK: The next task will be to make the needed modifications to
the CSS Output software parts library.
