Points
1. Let a be a point [distinct from . . . ].
2. Let a be a point on L [distinct from . . . ].
3. Let a be a point on L between b and c [distinct from . . . ].
4. Let a be a point on L extending the segment from b to c [with a distinct from. . . ].
5. Let a be a point on the same side of L as b [distinct from. . . ].
6. Let a be a point on the side of L opposite b [distinct from. . . ].
7. Let a be a point on a [distinct from . . . ].
8. Let a be a point inside a [distinct from . . . ].
9. Let a be a point outside a [distinct from . . . ].
Lines and Circles
1. Let L be the line through a and b [distinct from . . . ].
2. Let a be the circle with center a passing through b [distinct from . . . ].
Intersections
1. Let a be a point of intersection of L and M [distinct from . . . ].
2. Let a be a point of intersection of C and L [distinct from . . . ].
3. Let a and b be the two points of intersection of C and L [distinct from . . . ].
4. Let a be a point of intersection of L and C between b and c [distinct from . . . ].
5. Let a be a point of intersection of L and C extending the segment from c to b [distinct from . . . ].
6. Let a be a point of intersection of C and D [distinct from . . . ].
7. Let a and b be the two points of intersection of C and D [distinct from . . . ].
8. Let a be a point of intersection of C and D on the same side of L as b where L is the line through their centers c and d respectively [distinct from . . . ].
9. Let a be a point of intersection of C and D on the side of L opposite b where L is the line through their centers c and d respectively [distinct from . . . ]. I believe that software development is fundamentally about making decisions, and so this is what I write about (mostly). I'm the owner of Highline Solutions and also the Principal Technical Consultant. I have two degrees from Carnegie Mellon University, most recently one in philosophy (thesis here). I live in Pittsburgh, PA with my wife and 3 energetic boys. Subscribe here or write me at ben dot northrop at gmail dot com.
