"A joke among engineers is that rock structure can be commonly broken into two general classifications; 'CHILE' — Continuous Homogenous Isotropic Linear Elastic (what most geotechinical engineers would like to see) and 'DIANE' — Discontinuous Inhomogenous Anisotropic Non-Elastic (what most in-situ rock masses actually are). "

"Nearly every software professional has heard the term spaghetti code as apejorative description for complicated, difficult to understand, and impossible to maintain, software. However, many people may not know the other two elements of the complete Pasta Theory of Software.

Lasagne code is used to describe software that has a simple, understandable, and layered structure. Lasagna code, although structured, is unfortunately monolithic and not easy to modify. An attempt to change one layer conceptually simple, is often very difficult in actual practice.

The ideal software structure is one having components that are small and loosely coupled; this ideal structure is called ravioli code. In ravioli code, each of the components, or objects, is a package containing some meat or other nourishment for the system; any component can be modified or replaced without significantly affecting other components.

We need to go beyond the condemnation of spaghetti code to the active encouragement of ravioli code."

ammm...just...a little crazy... :-)

sometimes there are situations when you kind of cant think...(for me it is because of temperature now)...but you must think...and then are thoughts which just appear and it is not possible to determine is there some truth inside or not ... because you cant catch what you think :D complex :)

new connections in system can cause new problems...compatibility...actually everything new can cause...

in more hierarchies object is represented...more contacts it have and more wider point of view it gives...

hierarchies are created and/or used to construct a disconnected see where the links between the elements can be removed to show a specific functionality, characteristics of some group...

some things that i liked ...

today i read this : 
"" and know will need read once and think about solutions because this seems interesting :-)
Also prepare lecture for tomorrow about system structures...and  i liked this sentence ... a lot :)

"Misunderstandings that occurs continuously eventually will cause fatal damage to the system"

"If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.”
/ Albert Einstein /

“Words, when written, crystallize history; their very structure gives permanence to the unchangeable past”
/Sr. Francis Bacon /

this means structure is something that stays unchanged up to some point while other things change quite dynamic...

“A system doesn't necessarily mean rigid structure, but it means setting up organization that works for you.”
/Sue Shipman /

we create a structures to organize our works...
