Having work on Windows Remote Desktop over VPN and cell phone network, it was an opportunity to check how much bandwidth one could use. Probably it would depend how many screen is user flipping through, but answer is about 1 MB per minute. It means 1 GB cellular data would provide about 1000 minutes or 16.6 hours. One could imagine more effective way how to use data, but it’s different story.
REST is acronym for Representational state transfer. It was defined in 2000 by Roy Fielding in his doctoral dissertation. System conforming REST constraints can be called RESTful and most the time is using protocol HTTP utilizing its methods GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, and sometimes more.

Walk or run is enjoyable, but who would tell, that it’s happening also on microscopic level.
Here is myosinprotein dragging an endorphin along a filament to the inner part of the brain’s parietal cortex which creates happiness.
It’s good to know, that there is serious science done here in Minnesota, like Shed of Science by Russell Durkee. It’s recognized as an astronomical observatory H35 by IAU Minor Planet Center. R. Durkee was recognized in years 2009 and 2010 as recipient of the Shoemaker NEO grant.
This morning January 29, 2016 odometer in garage showed at 7:56 99,999 miles, so it was opportunity to take picture, and also to take picture of the palindrom 100001 two miles and few minutes later at 8:04. Notice that temperature was 10 degrees lower. Well, Minnesota Winter, thou mild.
So from October 23, 2009 till January 29, 2016 was 2289 days. (100 000 – 15 000) / 2289 = 37 miles per day, roughly.
Update: March 31, 2016: 101010 miles / 60 = 16.8 mi per day
Software magazine has published article Learning by example from Mike Hansen, and one has to only agree, that applying supply chain principles to software development is a good direction.
…there are significant opportunities to make performance gains by optimizing supply chains. By allowing for appropriate constraints or rules to be established up front, automating conformance and tooling, and verifying the information needed to remediate issues or context, organizations can markedly improve efficiency and control risk, thereby unleashing their capacity for innovation.
