Pink Mouse Productions
I'm not sure that the pink mouse productions page is really worthy of citing here. The main value it adds is some photographs. Apart from that it's very anecdotal and has a transient feel to it: there's no author or date, and one of the pictures is captioned as "me" without saying who "me" is. It's not a source that anyone could regard as more reliable than the Wikipedia article itself.
- OK, I've moved it from References to External links, and made clear that it's anecdotal, but I still think it has value for the interested reader. The authors can be deduced from notes elsewhere on the site.

- I'm the owner of pink-mouse-productions.com, but I am in the process of shutting it down. On May 20th I decided to redirect the link to my home server (http://jadzia.homelinux.net:8888/icl/2900.htm) until I figure out a better solution, however my edit was quickly reverted. I realise I was a bit naive making the change from an anonymous IP address, with no comment, and to a suspicious-looking URL. I decided to create a proper account and try again. If I make the change again and give a good explanation of the edit, is there a chance we can make it stick? Unfortunately I don't currently have access to a server with a 'professional' looking name.
- Probably the old link still worked at the time and that with the lack of comment was the reason. Just say something like fixing broken link. There aren't many externals of higher reliability so I believe it is fine under WP:ELMAYBE "Sites that fail to meet criteria for reliable sources yet still contain information about the subject of the article from knowledgeable sources." It would not be okay for a citation within the article. Dmcq (talk) 14:29, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
P Series & S Series
Anybody feel the urge to distinguish between the P series (2980, 2970,2976) and the somewhat different S Series (2950, 2956, 2960, 2966, etc.)? The latter had a quite distinct architecture, and replaced Parallel communication interfaces with serial (Macrolan) interconnections. There is no mention of Dual processors, which were accommodated in both the Hardware architecture, and the ICL VME operating system. Alldav (talk) 17:51, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
