Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Gathering A Dataset…

Folks, because the field of computers and digital tech is constantly growing and evolving (aka ‘changing’), and because it is so vast that “specialization” is almost mandatory, I am constantly learning, and taking courses, and earning new Industry Certificates.

For one small example, I have grown tired of being ignorant about the intricacies of computer programming, and so I am enrolled in a introductory C++ class at my local Junior College. But I’m not telling you that for any reason other than to segue into the fact that I have recently completed my midterm exams.

Yuck.

Since pop quizzes are so fun, I thought it would be terrific if today we had one here at Tech–for Everyone.. but don’t ‘freak out’; this one’s short, and I promise you won’t have to think.
[note: most of these allow multiple answers.]

See? That wasn’t so bad. And, I thank you.

You will note that you cannot see the results. That’s because I’m doing what is known as “gathering a data set”. In a few days, I will take your responses and “interpret” them, come to an honest, but arbitrary “conclusion” (no doubt matching my prejudices exactly) and then I will “publish” them in an article.

I can’t wait to see how it comes out!

  4. Well, I have to confess.. C++ is not coming “naturally” to me, but I’m doing better than “just passing”.
    Thanks for the vote of confidence.

  5. About Word…I am finding more and more ways to NOT use Word. Why should I pay for something that I can use for free? I am talking about OpenOffice. I use my computer at home so I don’t need Word. I don’t really like Word Pad. It’s goofy-looking. And with Microsoft Works, I have a hard time getting just a blank page. Bottom line – Open Office.

    I am looking forward to the Dataset.
