Bye and good work!
its a living breathing / processing something on my machine, what can
I say, i’m not typing in imagined output - want it from 1000 patients
- i’ll post it up in 2 minutes - its real.
my software was gathering mostly numeric data from factories around
the world, really, from cmms and such since the middle 80’s to the
middle 90’s on DOS based real-time apps i/we wrote back then. then
came windoz and then i ran screaming to Smalltalk that IBM had just
“re-re-introduced into VisualAge” and that seemed cool to me. Never
connected with the Smalltalk community from NE Wisconsin - I think
Smalltalk was rather dying even it as it was the best thing I’ve ever
seen in some ways - imagine a IDE and complete (100%) OO after having
been forced at gunpoint into buggy c++. no don’t - if you can
understand - it may make you cry.
but we also gathered comments usually associated with statistical
events. I wrote / authored all kinds of reports based on that to
about 1995 and it was interesting work that was worthwhile and fun and
rewarding… and I think we were about the only folks doing it
However, the point of this post is that “i have pissed up a few
ropes” (a colorful expression i reserve for serious discussions) and i
can tell you with almost complete personal confidence that this is no
such thing. which is wierd because the heads on approach blew up
complexity wise - and that was like I have said - to try and resolve
faulty data on the fly throwing complextity head on at complexity only
seemed to grow it. and that is what it is - bad data needs to get
resolved sooner or later right?
The “Ruids” don’t worry about this because the “SwarmSender” must
guarantee that this has already been done - in this “new” approach.
But that’s cheating?! ya. I changed domains. I now have excellent
data, a tad more complex than i’d like but just excellent - it is
nicely organized into sentences which I put into my “Satz” (almost
just a hash but has some rules - sorry but it seemed to deserve a
unique word). Cute thing about THIS is that the computer gets to play
with data it can handle heads on - and we humans can see the
reconstitution of the Satz (technical) into “Techlish” which is
"better than english or any natural language as keeping the ands & ors
and double negatives all straight. I’m CHEATING, so to say. You guys
can resolve the tough stuff - like working with impossible units or
missing units and implied units - i have no such thing in my little
world - and I can tellya why- because I’m working with Drugs as a
CLASS not as an instance - and the FDA makes sure that the instances
spec out to the Class - in the computer world of CPUs and such there
is no such regulation - and AMD / Intell let their marketing guys
write their respective garbage and its going to take a real expert to
sort that out. I’m not a real expert, I don’t even know one up here -
so I had to tuck my schwanz betw my legs and move to where i didn’t
need to be an expert.
BUT there are things about Computer systems like continual change and
I still see real value to Blasting a shopping basket with 1000’s of
teamed “Ruids” to figure out 1. if its anything like a “system” 2.
if something obvious might be missing 3. if the stuff that logically
mates will mate 4. if there isn’t a better system for the money (or
whatever) and if his accumulated fan noise is above / below expected,
if the power supply seems adequate, and most of all if the thing
and the “Ruids” can be contributed by computer geeks - that was how
“the lightning stuck my head”! - i wanted to allow outside
contributions and THAT has been accomplished beyond what I expected
and one of the reasons i stay genuinely excited about this project.
It leverages the whole thing - hook this up to a Forum like PCMech and
you rather can own a Greek Island or two, and invite me over. OK?
I wrote to PCMech and some other such domain champions and they are
not ready to “see” this yet. and, ahh, well, geee, but it isn’t the
easiest thing to communicate about… not yet anyway - we need to
agree on symbols for this stuff and the RU in Ruid trips my trigger -
and that seems related to this forum somehow, just vaguely.
