Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Migeru also offered me (us!) a good word:


I'm still stuck with thesis-antithesis-synthesis, waiting for synthesis to arrive...oh so slowly!  When, if synthesis is the aim, why not cut out the five and...oh...the ten..."I win, you lose; you're dead, I win"

Great care must be given when employing a heuristic algorithm. One common pitfall in implementing a heuristic method to meet a requirement comes when the engineer or designer fails to realize that the current data set doesn't necessarily represent future system states.

While the existing data can be pored over and an algorithm can be devised to successfully handle the current data, it is imperative to ensure that the heuristic method employed is capable of handling future data sets. This means that the engineer or designer must fully understand the rules that generate the data and develop the algorithm to meet those requirements and not just address the current data sets.

Those future data sets....

Hey, you found it in one!
