8. Identify Use Cases Only

After forms are identified, we initially identify but do not document in detail use cases (business processes). The documenting of uses cases can occur later in step 1 or early in step 2 of our 2-Step. Each use case is identified, labeled, and assigned to 1 or more actors as part of the Task Artifact that is identified with the specific form that contains use case, or in a UML Use Case diagram to accompany our standard documentation. If only a UML Use Case diagram is created at this point of the project, then the UML Use Case diagram is used during the Document Use Cases task where each use case and actor are associated with a specific App Artifact and documented.

Deliverable: 1+ tasks in step 1 or 2 of our 2-step. Optionally, we can deliver a UML use case diagram.

9. Identify and Document Actors

An actor represents a role or user of the application. Actors are defined with each application and can be linked with one or more requirement items, forms, and/or use cases (business processes).

Deliverable: Included as part of the App Specification from the app menu, or printed and/or delivered to the client for review anytime from the App Actors page.

10. Document Known Terms

Every business and custom application uses terms defined for their business. Definitions help clarify communication by establishing the meaning of verbiage and can be either a word or phrase.

To do: Ask client for a list of terms. If they do not have a list, perhaps client staff can generate a list of definitions to kick-start documenting of known terms. We will add to the list as we discover them.

Deliverable: Included as part of the App Specification from the app menu, or printed and/or delivered to the client for review anytime from the App Definitions page.

3. Teaching old thumbs new tricks - Tech Writing Blog

When I took a typing classs (not a keyboarding class, and yes, I know that dates me) I was taught that words had one space between them and sentences had two spaces in between them. Therefore, my thumbs, whose only job was to hit the space bar, learned that when a period was the last key typed, they had to hit the space bar twice instead of only once. They were good at this and were quite proud of their skill.

Now the rules have changed. The convention, especially for�material to be read on a screen, is that sentences have only one space between them. My thumbs have been rebelling. When I type, they want to put TWO spaces after a period. When I am typing something formal, in addition to checking my spelling and grammar, I also need to�check how many spaces are between each sentence.

Luckily, my thumbs are starting to adjust, and I am finding fewer and fewer double spaces between sentences. Thumbs can learn new tricks.

6. The Future of Paradox Blog

If you have an existing Paradox system you can keep using it but you'll need to skip the Vista operating system and either stick with Windows XP or move to Windows 7. Because better tools exist, you may very well want to put a plan together now for converting to another development tool or at least understand what the future is likely to hold. If you're a power-user or researcher working with data, stick with Paradox.

7. Failed Hard Drives and RAID If you've used computers for more than a few years, you know that you don't wonder IF a hard drive will fail - you wonder WHEN. It just happened to me - again. But this time it looks like the results will be pretty painless. The reasons? * RAID Level 1 * Superb Hard Drive manufacturer warranty support
