20200917@1256 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: Not sure why no one is posting a "hello". This is AFAIK a new idea, and lot's of people have now seen my "Come Eat With Us!" sign. I'm still focused on finding and fixing software bugs, so it will be some time before I can declare the software "finished" and turn my attention to promoting IDEAFARM.COM. But don't hesitate to post an anonymous "hello". I don't bite. You will find me to be friendly and welcoming, regardless of your situation or opinions. Once people are posting here, this project will become more fun for me and more interesting for you.

20200914@0939 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: It's been a few days since the server software failed. If you ever see this page unavailable or loading very slowly, please let me know by posting anonymously here. These kinds of bugs are easy to fix once they cause a failure, because IPDOS (tm) gives me good diagnostic information.

20200910@2012 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: Feel free to post anonymously. I spent a "day off" holding my "Come, Eat With Us!" sign. Although IDEAFARM.COM probably was never down, the server software failed many times today. That means that I have more work to do on the software, so it will be a strong or oo before I get back out onto the street with my sign.

20200909@1338 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: Ok. I guess IDEAFARM.COM is ready. Time to get out on the street with my, "Come, Eat With Us!" sign.

20200908@1900 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: Ok. Finished. The craftwork to make IDEAFARM.COM serve pages quickly and for high volume is now done. The next step is to see whether the server software ever fails. Within a few strongs, I might be confident that the software work is finally finished and IDEAFARM.COM is fit for human habitation!

20200906@2058 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: You are welcome to chat here if you are curious about what I am up to. This web site will sometimes not be available. This is because I am actively developing the software that serves these pages. There is a big vision and 30 years of preparation and 1/2 million lines of code. Anyone is welcome to chat with me, and you might find what I'm up to of interest if you are interested in either software technology or social change.

20200830@2024 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: This web site was down for a few days because there is a design defect that will take a few strongs to fix, and I haven't had time to work on this due to other business demanding my attention. Feel free to post anonymously here. The defect does not cause data loss; it only causes the servers to crash.

20200823@1522 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: Although the design fix will be in progress for a few strongs, the particular case that caused the web site servers to be unstable seems to have been fixed. Once the redesign code changes are finished, and the servers are known to be stable, I plan to eliminate the "are you human" button as I continue to develop the subsystems that protect against 'bot attacks and 'bot loading. As long as the server software doesn't crash, all of this software work can proceed slowly as I attend to other business. I have many demands on my time, so would be very excited to have a few people take an interest in this project. Until that happens, this project will continue to plod along.

20200822@1543 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: I found a design defect that will take me a few more days to fix. It requires a simple change in several hundred more places in the code. The web site will be unstable (slow or down) until I finish that work.

20200809@1334 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: The server software has been enhanced so that now it should keep working even if all but one server dies. This is necessary because servers must occasionally be rebooted or the software manually restarted. I will begin to focus on making page service fast. Over the next few strongs, I should be able to eliminate any bugs that cause the software or the web pages to fail.

20200807@0956 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: Well, my laptop died, and some other business demanded my attention, so I haven't been able to either hold a sign or work on the software for this web site. It might take me a few strongs to finish polishing the software. Feel free to post anonymously here; I would enjoy conversing and finding out what people think of this site.

20200802@1812 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: Now it's time to find out what people think. I'm going to begin holding a sign during "rush hour" while continuing to develop the server software. Thank you for taking a look. Please let me know what you think, either by subscribing or just posting an anonymous note to me here.

20200730@1128 USA 94042 Mountain View 1 Wo Ideafarm: Craftwork status: Over the next few days, I will find out whether the server software is "rock solid". Meanwhile, I will take a look at speeding up the page loading. The current software is like a prototype, in that it is crafted for simplicity and reliability, rather than for speed and efficiency. Although a few users are welcome, before I can begin to make mass invitations for people to subscribe, I will have to verify reliability and then craft the code changes that will make page loads fast and will reduce the work that the server must do for each request to the minimum needed.
