FURPS is an acronym representing a model for classifying software quality attributes (functional and non-functional requirements):
Functionality – Capability (Size & Generality of Feature Set), Reusability (Compatibility, Interoperability, Portability), Security (Safety & Exploitability)
Usability (UX) – Human Factors, Aesthetics, Consistency, Documentation, Responsiveness
Reliability – Availability (Failure Frequency (Robustness/Durability/Resilience), Failure Extent & Time-Length (Recoverability/Survivability)), Predictability (Stability), Accuracy (Frequency/Severity of Error)
Performance – Speed, Efficiency, Resource Consumption (power, ram, cache, etc.), Throughput, Capacity, Scalability
Supportability (Serviceability, Maintainability, Sustainability, Repair Speed) – Testability, Flexibility (Modifiability, Configurability, Adaptability, Extensibility, Modularity), Installability, Localizability
The keyboard layout used to be in alphabetical order in early typewriters, but they found the typewriter heads would often hit each other and get stuck. For this reason the QWERTY layout was designed so common words would use alternative sides of he typewriter to minimize jamming. Despite developments in technology the layout has stayed the same ever since.
I have heard lots of good things about Tumblr in the past but never tried it myself. I have now taken the plunge and signed up. So far so good, it has a really nice and smooth interface and is very easy to use. Still working my way around but so far so good, check it out http://jameshardingnet.tumblr.com/
