State of Play 2018/wk12

Website been down since attempted to get my SSL certificate renewed about 2 weeks ago. Finally regained access and got rid of the unsafe site notice late Friday afternoon (24/03/2018).  In the meantime transferred websites on wordpress and blogger that I helped my dad setup,  to my own accounts so that I can do something […]

State of Play 2018/wk05

Problematic week. Something simple became complicated and more time consuming than it should have been. Poses an anomaly or paradox with use of software especially spreadsheets. In the first instance my adoption of spreadsheets was to: Improve presentation over hand written calculations Reduce round-off errors on carry through to dependent calculations Reduce transcription errors between […]

I was taking another look at statistics, and seems I made an error when reading data from wikipedia, which I opted for in preference to Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) because it was easier and faster to read. Instead of getting the population for Yorketown seems I may have  read the post code. So my […]

All the production occurs inside the human mind, and makes the mind more knowledgeable. Any case back to random and irregular “state of […]

Downloads Temporarily Out Of Action

It was reported today [4/07/2017] that there was no download links available after purchase. I checked this morning using a few different email addresses. I checked two products and discovered the download links in the product definition were missing. I fixed the definition for the spreadsheet bundle only, which fixed the download link problem. When […]

As mentioned in previous posts my Windows XP laptop computer had problems, first faulty power adapter, which I replaced, and then the backlight for the screen. When I purchased the replacement power adapter I also bought a low cost replacement computer just in case the power adapter didn’t fix the problem. The replacement computer however […]

Thus far generally attempted to keep conjecture to my personal metamorphs blog (Beyond Structures). Around 1976 I started writing a small journal of ideas and general findings, since then I have written several such journals, some years filling several A4 sized hardback books. One common thread through these journals is my concept of utopia. Utopia is […]
