If BOSS 20 was the first BOSS product to be released, then it was also the first product to be released for Microsoft Windows. As a software product, BOSS has many users. It has certainly been an enormous market, with some people being customers of the product long before it had the formal name.
People have come to BOSS from many different backgrounds. Some have not used a computer themselves to any degree, and others have never heard of the name BOSS.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, many of us in the computer industry were very interested in the success of Microsoft’s Windows operating system. We wanted to get ahead of the competition and take our company to a higher level of professionalism. By building a BOSS product, we were trying to meet high standards for a product that was aimed squarely at the home computer market – a market that Microsoft was heavily courting. This project also gave us the opportunity to meet some of our competitors in the industry.
I have always been very impressed with the work that the people who run Microsoft have put into BOSS. They have done a lot to make Windows the leading software platform in the world and have put money into training and marketing. I was not always positive that they would succeed, but I have been very positive that they have. Their ability to learn from their past mistakes shows that they will move forward.
I knew that it would be a great day when Microsoft announced that it had released BOSS 2. 0 for Windows. I saw this very clearly at the time (July 13, 1999) when they released the statement: “BOSS 2. 0 represents enhancements that are the result of a five-year effort driven by Microsoft Windows 2000, our customers’ needs, and the feedback we were getting from them.
A Conversation with Jac Nasser and Louie Douvis
You might say you’re not the first to ask these types of questions about the new Raspberry Pi. For a few years, they’ve been in the news a lot, most recently I wrote a separate article on the Raspberry Pi Foundation which you can read here. And although there’s been a lot of discussion about it in the Raspberry Pi community, I don’t have a lot of personal experience doing these types of things.
In fact, if anything, I’d say the Raspberry Pi seems to have kind of settled down the past few years, in that there’s a lot of good information out there to get everyone started. At our Pi Day event in May, there were so many talks about the project that it was almost hard to keep track of what was going on. I mean, I knew of the Raspberry Pi Project, I knew it existed; I just didn’t know it had the kind of attention it had over the past few years. It also seems to have taken a turn for the better as the Raspberry Pi Foundation is taking more and more prominent in the news. This week is probably going to be a good time to address these questions. I have some big questions to ask, and I want to get everyone thinking about this thing that we’ve taken for granted for years.
If I was to take it from this, the Raspberry Pi Foundation (RPi) seems to have a pretty mature foundation with a pretty solid core set of goals for the next few years. I know it’s been a lot of controversy over the last few months about the size and scope of the projects, but it seems to have pretty clearly formed itself into a foundation for the Raspberry Pi. Whether that’s the best way to do things, or whether there’s a better way to do it, I don’t know. I don’t mean to push a point of view; I just feel like it’s a lot of information that needs to be answered.
A Conversation with Daniel Lavecky
One of the best computer hardware reviews is one you don’t hear often. Here’s a great article by Alan Kay, and Daniel Lavecky’s answer to it.
“I hope this finds you happy,” said Alan Kay.
Alan Kay has been a computer hobbyist for decades. For several years he was one of the first and, so far, only people to run on a full 64-bit system.
Before his time in the hobby, he studied electrical engineering at Cornell University and has held a number of high-ranking positions, including Professor of Computer Science at Harvard University. He’s currently a Senior Fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations, and was once one of the editors of the International Journal of Computer Science & Engineering.
After receiving his PhD in Electrical Engineering at Cornell, Kay joined Harvard’s faculty. His work as Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Harvard before he received his PhD was primarily in the area of control theory related to systems of moving parts. In 1997 he was appointed as Senior Lecturer of the Computer Science Department, and in the fall of the same year he was promoted to Associate Professor. He spent the remainder of his time as Senior Fellow at the Council.
“One of the exciting things I found in my first year as Assistant Professor was that Alan was a great mentor. He had a real sense of the problems I had, and I had a real sense of the problems others had. He taught me a lot of things I would have been lost in if I’d been taught by a ‘real’ professor,” says Alan Kay.
“I came to the Council [after receiving my PhD] as one of its first full-time fellows. It was an amazing experience for me, being an independent academic and working with Alan,” he said.
in 2005, and its current President in 2013.
“What I love about [the Council], I think, is that it is a great institution where independent experts can come together for discussion and debate, and it also allows members to set their own agendas,” he said.
Blockchain and the future of technology.
The current blockchain landscape has a lot of new technology being released to the marketplace every day. While there are many exciting projects around, most of them remain in the early-stage of development. But what if one does step out and take a look at them for a moment? What if one looks, and then decides to act? Is it really that far fetched to think that a new technology like blockchain can revolutionize the way we do things in the future? Well, let me tell you a brief tale.
In 2015, Bitcoin was just a new and emerging cryptocurrency. And, it was easy to understand the technology behind the cryptocurrencies. While other coins, including Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, etc. were at the beginning stages of blockchain development, Bitcoin was still just an idea. After the cryptocurrency craze took off, Ethereum and Litecoin did not really get developed. This was because the developers were just using the public ledger to verify that the coins that they were spending were actually paid for. There were no miners and no exchanges involved.
Now, in 2016, we have a whole new technology that has just been released that completely changed the entire way how we do things in the world. The blockchain is the technology that is going to change everything. And, it is a technology that is still developing. It is a technology that is on the cusp of changing the way we do things and the way we view things.
The blockchain is a database that is made up of millions of data points. And, each one is stored in a very specific way and encrypted and so on. The public ledger is just like the ledger on any piece of paper. But, when a transaction is made on the public ledger, it is then stored in the blockchain. Blockchain technology can do so much things. Let’s dive into what they have, and how they are going to change the way things are done.
Blockchain technology allows transactions to be transparent and completely private.
Tips of the Day in Computer Hardware
Lately I have been working on a project with several friends at my summer job. We are all interested in the same types of subjects so we’ve set up a “Project X” and have been setting up specific topics to work on. This got me thinking about how I would write about our projects since this is such a personal thing.
I am a big believer in the idea that the best ideas come from small, personal projects that give you a lot of freedom to write, think, and do as you see fit. The only challenge is that we only have a small portion of the actual project in front of us.
Our “Project X” is about learning the basics of HTML & CSS. We have agreed upon our first topic, which is using the HTML 5 tag, and the first task on the agenda is writing a page with that tag on the page.
Our second topic is basic CSS (styling CSS) so we will learn the basics and then jump right into writing our own styles like backgrounds and the like.
