Hello Dyl and welcome to Wikipedia! Hope you like it here, and stick around.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

Good luck!

Category:Individual computers[edit]

I'm not actually sure off hand - this is the first I've seen of that category. I think it's meant to be for single (I guess that's what's meant by "individual") computers, i.e. those where only one was built. There were several models of VAX systems, and a lot were sold, so if that counts as an 'individual computers' then so would IBM PCs and so on. Kate | Talk 19:16, 2004 Aug 20 (UTC)


Cool![edit]

Hi! Thanks for the Picture at Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. Can make also a picture on Southern Comfort (film) and Timerider, please? - User: Julian Thome

Genghis Khan[edit]

Thanks for correcting my error in calling him Japanese (re: Shabu-shabu). Of course he's Mongolian. --Diberri | Talk 07:05, Aug 25, 2004 (UTC)

Out-of-order[edit]

Thanks for the start. It's great to have someone else working on this stuff.

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing[edit]

Why all the capital letters? Are computer science students taught that it is incorrect to begin a word with a lower-case letter? Michael Hardy 5 July 2005 00:01 (UTC)

Daily Radar[edit]

You said "Within a decade, companies that once employed thousands of people and generated hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue can disappear without a trace." I was wondering if you (or anyone reading this for that matter) knows anything about Daily Radar. It was like the companies you describe above. No one seems to remember much about it. That bugs me so much, as they were one of the leading gameing websites while they were in business. -Hyad 5 July 2005 04:28 (UTC)

Re: Egg tart != dim sum[edit]

I understand that. Since categories are mainly for navigational purpose, I've added egg tart back to the dim sum category, with a brief note [1]. Thanks for your attention. — Instantnood 19:58, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

varieties of rice[edit]

Actually, the varieties of rice I added to List of rice varieties are sold by many different manufacturers under several brand names (for example, this Google search for Calrose rice). They can be found on one or more of the following sources: the California Rice Commission website, the California Rice Research Board website, and the UC Davis Rice Project website. (with others with silly names like M-104) Gentgeen 11:58, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Poultry[edit]

I removed poultry from the dove and pheasant page because it is inaccurate. I would not object to the label for Rock Dove or Common Pheasant, but there are 300 species of dove and sevarl dozen of pheasant, the vast majority of which are not used as poultry, and many of which are rare or protected by legislation. I'll look at quail again. jimfbleak 06:38, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

I've sorted quail - thanks for the tip. jimfbleak 06:44, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

thin client[edit]

You participated on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Thin_client. Check out this page i sugguested the fix you were talking about... Tell me what you think.

DeskStation Technology[edit]

I have few questions about the DeskStation Technology article that you started. I have an old device from this company, that i need to get the data off, and it looks like it has proprietory connections. I was wondering if you worked for this company or knew someone who did. Can you please get in touch with me? You can email me from my user page. Thanks a lot. --kunjan1029 01:22, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

IBM, ASC[edit]

Done per your request. I think there is value in all the ASCI article titles identifying their vendor, but no matter. There is some confusion you might be able to help with. The other articles are, as I recall, are all ASCI. The one renamed is ASC and the text references a program for which ASC looks to be a reasonable abv. However, there is a redirect page, ASCI purple, to the ASC page. Is this machine both, or is ASC, or ASCI, wrong? Thanks, tooold 02:44, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

What would you think of LLNL-IBM ASC ? tooold 04:49, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

P.A. Semi[edit]

I do stand corrected. I've corrected both P.A. Semi and PWRficient articles accordingly, and included the 603Q into my upcoming article about the PowerPC 600 family (User:Henriok/PowerPC 600). I'm sorry but I don't think I can get the Microprocessor Report issues you suggested but I sure want to. If you can dig out more information about any of these processors I'd be very interested. My mail adress is on my user page. Thanks for all the help! And.. AMCC's designs are based on IBM's previous work, about this there is no doubt and they haven't done anything really new yet (PowerPC 400). -- Henriok 18:56, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Request for comment on computer program[edit]

The Computer program article is in need of repair. Would you comment on any improvement suggestions? I joined the talk starting with the thread talk:computer program#Definition of a computer program. Timhowardriley 23:26, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Open computing[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Open computing, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

ANDES[edit]

Hello! I am working on an article about the MTI R10000 and planning to merge Architecture with non-sequential dynamic execution scheduling into the larger article, when I noticed you made this edit, claiming that ANDES is a marketing buzzword. I agree that it is not a technical term, but if memory serves me right, is ANDES not a fancy name for the R10000's microarchitecture rather than a buzzword for out of order execution? Thanks. Rilak (talk) 08:33, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. In reply at my talk page, you said that the evidence that supported ANDES being a name for the R10000 microarchitecture was not very clear. By chance, I found this article, which states, "The chip's architecture has been dubbed ANDES, Architecture with Non-Sequential Dynamic Execution Scheduling." I'll include this as a citation at the R10000 artice. Rilak (talk) 06:40, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Message regarding your use of the No Multi License Template[edit]

In case you are not aware, the Wikimedia Foundation has proposed that the copyright licensing terms on the wikis operated by the WMF – including Wikipedia – be changed to include the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike (CC-BY-SA) license in addition to the current GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) as allowed by version 1.3 of the GFDL.

You currently have {{NoMultiLicense}} on your user or user talk page, which states that your edits are licensed under the GFDL only. On or before June 15, this template will be changed to reflect Wikipedia's new licensing terms. If you accept the licensing change, you do not need to do anything (and feel free to remove this message); if you do not accept it, we regret that you will no longer be able to contribute to the encyclopedia. Please join the discussion at Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)#NoMultiLicense template if you have any comments.

Thor's Hammer[edit]

I've merged most of the content from ASCI Thor's Hammer with User:Smk-slab's proposed rewrite to Red Storm (computing). The consensus was that no one outside of a few internal Sandians used the Thor's Hammer codename once the machine was installed. -- Autopilot (talk) 16:14, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

AfD nomination of List of types of seafood[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is List of types of seafood. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of types of seafood. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:05, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks!--DASHBot (talk) 20:32, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Multithreading[edit]

Hello,

I see you wrote the Multithreading article. I read a sentence in "block multithreading" that I believe not to be clear:

It appears to each thread that it is executing alone and not sharing any hardware resources with any other threads. This minimizes the amount of software changes needed within the application as well as the operating system to support multithreading.

As far as the OS is concerned, it is like SMPs, except there are more thread placement optimizations. For the application, I don't see what it simplifies, since there are still concurrent threads executing, as in SMPs and every other multithreading type, and the same cache sharing as in SMT and interleaved multithreading.

Should I change the sentence, or am I wrong in some way ?
