You're correct in saying the results can be unreliable. The numbers on top are never entirely accurate IMO and are only ball park estimates. --RA (talk) 12:21, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Try and see if you can stop the book Londonderry in America being the top entry returned for Google books with the search term Londonderry. Dmcq (talk) 12:34, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
It's a persistent little fecker, alight. Gone. :-) --RA (talk) 23:17, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Bloody hell: ~0.4 million vs. ~10 million!? --RA (talk) 23:19, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
That's quite a difference and a look at the pages emphaises it. I think that shows why I was suggesting Londonderry should point to the disambiguation page. Dmcq (talk) 00:26, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

## Logical symbols TfD

Dmcq, although I think that you may be right in saying that the articles on logical symbols aren't notable, a TfD isn't the right way of dealing with it. You haven't provided a valid reason for deleting a template. First you should do a multiple-page AfD nomination. If the articles are deleted, then you could put this template up for deletion because nothing links to it. I would recommend withdrawing the TfD. RockMagnetist (talk) 17:18, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

How about looking at it and deciding if we should have a list of such links in the first place? Even if the symbols had some notability why would one want to do this? It is just someone with a yen to accumulate article and template creations without any real sense behind it. Do you feel it is a reasonable template to have in Wikipedia? Dmcq (talk) 18:18, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
If the articles are notable, I do think it's a reasonable template - a way of navigating between a well-defined list of closely related subjects. But that's really beside the point, because the decision in a TfD will probably be based on the reasons for deletion, and none of them apply here. RockMagnetist (talk) 18:29, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
See WP:TfD "Templates for which none of these apply may be deleted by consensus here". We are not bound to keeep silly things simply because it doesn't fit some classification. Work out for yourself if it actually does anything in the least useful. For instance if Turned E actually had some notability would such a template have any point? A reference to logical symbols should just point to list of logic symbols. If a person is interested in the glyphs in Unicode then they should be pointed at Unicode mathematical operators. What this template does is cause trouble navigating. Dmcq (talk) 18:33, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure I agree, but at least this sounds more like a rationale for deleting a template. You should add this comment to the discussion. RockMagnetist (talk) 18:43, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
You're right about that, as I said after Arthur Rubin's comment he said what was really wrong much better than me. I said about the notability but that was me just scurrying down the wiki policies rather than working out really why it all felt wrong and shouldn't be pushed in and loads of articles created to support it.

## God does not exist

Thanks for the humorous read of weird computer error messages. It reminded me of one message that used to come up on a CNC machine that I programmed for years ago. The software was from an Italian company and had been translated into English. Some of the error messages and dialog boxes took a few seconds to figure out what they meant due to some broken English. I was out at the tool one night when the operator of the tool was shutting it down. When he clicked to shut the system down, instead of the usual "The system is now shutting down" or some such message, what was displayed was "The system is now getting off". Thanks again for the link. Dismas|(talk) 01:31, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

## WT: WikiProject Mathematics #"Unregistered" appearance of .3Cmath.3E and latex to html

Sorry for stalking, but what did you mean it the summary of [1]? Surely do you not confuse 78.144.197.99 with the latex to html user? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:03, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

No I didn't. Just that I see that latex to html has been responding to some extent. Sorry if I have caused trouble, I thought I had withdrawn that fairly quickly. Dmcq (talk) 10:54, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

## Windows 1.0 logo removal request

After we reported the fake logo issue, Codename Lisa decided to specify a link to http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/bloggingwindows/archive/2012/02/17/redesigning-the-windows-logo.aspx as a source which just makes me LOL - looks like Sam Moreau or someone else at Microsoft decided to fix the initial logo missing problem by creating a fake logo which they now represent as an original Windows Logo! Really, history is a subject to change... -- Aaleksanyants (talk) 11:39, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

I've complained as I thought the deletion should not be speedily closed but kept open for a week as it definitely wasn't obviously something to keep. Plus I've put in a request to move the file to 'Fantasy Microsoft Windows logo.svg' instead and put a reference to the actual logo in the summary. Dmcq (talk) 13:36, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
I don't think that renaming is a good idea. Wikipedia editors are not aware of that and display this logo on Windows 1.x/2.x page descriptions. About 10 hours ago I have removed the logo from all the pages linking to it on all available languages (including Portuguese, Georgian, Italian, Romanian, Polish etc.) and when I check the file links now I see that some of the links have been restored. Please add you vote for deleting the image as misleading/inappropriate, this would be much more effective in stopping this fake campaign... Aaleksanyants (talk) 18:15, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
I'd have preferred it go and I suggested a more descriptive name. The one tyey've given implies someone actually was thinking of it back in 1985 and there's no evidence of hat. Dmcq (talk) 18:55, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
More descriptive would be Fake Logo Of Windows 1.0, and probably the file with such name could be later used when describing the real history regarding this logo (who is the real author, how it became to be considered as an official logo etc.) - I think this is a subject for a separate article :-) Aaleksanyants — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.19.97.42 (talk) 19:54, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Fantasy rather than Fake is what I wanted it called Dmcq (talk) 20:17, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

I've had a look around and the earliest I can find that design is from September 7 2010 in Logopedia. Dmcq (talk) 06:27, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

I see they've moved the image back to the previous misleading place on Commons. I can really sympathise with people who are unfamiliar with Wikipedia when they try to fix something stupid and come across such opposition. Dmcq (talk) 07:30, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

An original of the logo was found on some documentation for a talk on the Windows SDK so we've agreed it is a Windows 1.0 logo even if it doesn't seem to have ever actually been used for advertising Windows. Dmcq (talk) 10:40, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

## Re: Out of line comment?

From my point-of-view, the OP was unsure if there's anything of importance still on the drive that's not backed up. OP probably knows that the click might mean something disastrous and does not want to smash the hard drive, but wants to find if there's anything he can do to fix the problem/recover the data. In my view, your comment was an attempt at humor that was unwarranted in such as situation. Apologies if you feel differently. -- 143.85.199.242 (talk) 15:09, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

If you have some way of helping them read the disk then go ahead. They can for instance run a disk checker and changing the temperature or putting it edgewise rather than flat might also 'help'. I believe that even if they had no problems reading the disk it would all still be a waste of time but perhaps not quite such a bad one as persisting in trying.

## Moved back the video on Oragami

Hi,

I noticed that you moved the Lang video from the math section to the external links section in Oragami. The use of the external media template is well established and specifically noted in WP:EL. It is intended to be used in the same place that the media would be used if it were freely licensed, which in this case would be in the math section.

All the best,

Smallbones(smalltalk) 05:13, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

It is not in the least usual to have external links in the main body of articles, they should be in the citations or externals normally. I see no reason to include the video in the main body. Plus also I don't think one should just associate some image that wasn't in the original. And by the way it is origami, not oragami. Dmcq (talk) 12:43, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
I have reverted again and set up a discussion at Talk:Origami#External video. Dmcq (talk) 12:54, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

## reference desk

OK, the reference desk is not an How to forum. But also, it is not a place to discuss what things should be. You told internet should be free. But using adds doesn't (wikipedia). I don't want sold a worldwide solution like free. The main reason I want to this at the router is effectively I own cheap device where you can't configure anything. You can't load many pages with 84Mb of ram and publicity enabled (including non blocking ones).62.39.140.158 (talk) 15:04, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

So basically you are saying you have a need to access the internet which justifies your actions because you lack resources. I guess I can sympathize to some extent. I don't know what kind of system would have that little memory for the user, possibly a Nintendo 3DS. If it is later Windows on an earlier PC I'd put Linux on it myself but I guess there's a real worry that a problem while changing over will leave nothing working if you haven't anyone around who knows what they're doing - and I can't see how you could be in this state if there was such a person around. Dmcq (talk) 16:31, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
I see you are in France. You are not in some poor third world country. There is no excuse in France that I can think of. Dmcq (talk) 17:40, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
Not a Nintendo, you can enter proxy parameters on their consoles and you have an option to skip images loading. Generally I like things using MIPS architecture even if can't do things with it.
Cheap is rather a comparative between devices that provides the same functionality with some extra and the possibility to install custom software. I don't need this except in some case like the router (there are always a way to do things in another way).
Thanks for removing the close.

2A02:8422:1191:6E00:56E6:FCFF:FEDB:2BBA (talk) 19:25, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

I did some work on MIPS coding for various R3000 - R5000 type chips but there was more call elsewhere especially for ARM implementations. One of the reasons was that one could make a quite big memory saving using the ARM - which is relevant in your case! For some reason I never understood ROM tends to be quite a bit slower than RAM so people still wanted a lot of code to execute from RAM, plus downloading new code or even generating code on the fly was common. On the other hand MIPS chips had more advanced facilities before ARM so that was their big strength. Dmcq (talk) 20:28, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

## Aphrodite

Someone just blogged this to me: the girdle might be a throwback to Aprodite as the Sumerian Inanna as a mother-goddess and the other is a cautionary tale on the evils of adultery: After the adulterous couple were discovered and the male gods summoned (the female gods found the whole thing indelicate and stayed away), Hephaestus at first demanded the return of his bride-price from Zeus, who disclaimed any responsibility. Finally, Poseidon intervened on behalf of Ares, guaranteeing that the latter would pay an equivalent fine - which, of course, he never did. But I have a futhur question: Wasn't another use of the girdle was as a kind of celestial shield. When King Anchises unwisely boasted of having slept with the goddess, Zeus hurled a thunderbolt at him, but Aphrodite interposed her girdle and saved his life. When did this happen? And was the girdle or net were either of then made of bronze, gold, or Adamant? Venustar84 (talk) 16:59, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

II think the girdle was supposed to be of gold but there's no authoritative version for any of this stuff at that level of detail - storytellers embellish their yarns as they go along! I'm sure the reference desk will get you better answers. Dmcq (talk) 17:16, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

## RfC

I have seen it happen again and again that an RfC is opened in order to get input from new or uninvolved participants, and then descends into the same shouting match between the same few people that led to it being opened. Invariably, new and uninvolved people then decide not to venture into it, and the template is removed after a month without a resolution being any closer. It is especially incumbent on the person who opens an RfC not to let that happen.

I will be quite happy to engage with you in the Inclusion of Irish flag section of the talk page – or indeed the Northern Ireland flags issue talk page – if you want. Or at least as long as I think there is something to be gained by continuing to discuss it. In answer to the specific issue that you put to Valenciano, I believe that a factual article on the flag or flags of any place is worth having, even when the place does not have any official flag. An article about conflict over a flag is also worth having, but it should have minimal overlap with the flag article. European wars of religion does not go into detailed discussion of Christian churches, and Football War does not explain the rules of football, or the organisation of the World Cup. Therefore, Flags of Northern Ireland says what it should say, and is appropriately illustrated, but Northern Ireland Flags Issue needs to be gutted, and a proper article written about the conflict over flags. Scolaire (talk) 10:39, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

I agree about the issues article but you seem to have some funny idea in your mind of what the topic is if flag of Northern Ireland must display the flag of Ireland as a possible version. The RfC was not yet listed last I looked and it may well fail due to the reasons you say.We have discussed the issue in those sections and I saw absolutely no movement or readiness to change anything so I don't see what your point is. Anyway I think the talk page is a better place for discussion than here. Dmcq (talk) 11:06, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
My point is, simply, don't challenge every editor that doesn't agree with you. That way the RfC won't descend into an unseemly point-scoring exercise. The RfC is listed now, so why not just hold your peace, and see how it develops? As I say, I will gladly enter into discussion with you in any (other) forum. Scolaire (talk) 17:39, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
I would prefer any discussion to be on the talk page please. Dmcq (talk) 19:57, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
You said you didn't see what my point was, so I told you what my point was. The article talk page wasn't the place to do that: it doesn't add anything to the discussion there. If you don't keep trying to have the last word, I won't keep having to respond to you. Scolaire (talk) 22:23, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Talk page. Not here. I value having everything in the open rather than people having any agreements elsewhere. I really do not wish to discuss anything to do with article content and improvement or any decisions elsewhere here. Dmcq (talk) 09:36, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
Neither do I, as I've told you three times already. I came here only to comment on your behaviour on the article talk page. Not to attack you, but just to say that I thought it was inadvisable. I would not have posted again if you had not responded in a way that required a response. Or the second time or the third time either. There really is no need for you to say anything more. If you don't, then I won't. Scolaire (talk) 18:04, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
I have asked you to go away from this talk page. You are banned from this page. Comply or be taken to ANI for harassment. Do not say anything here not even to say you will comply. Dmcq (talk) 18:16, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Look dude, there is no rule against you sticking around but come on. You're obviously not welcome here, comments like "Take me to ANI" are a pride issue and serve no significant constructive purpose, and there just really isn't any point in your sticking around. Why are you here? Be polite and respectful by leaving. It's not a big deal and the only reason not to is because it requires you to swallow your pride.--v/r - TP 22:48, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

## Removal of my comment?

Hi Dmcq,

I recently commented on a question at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Mathematics and noticed you just deleted it. What was wrong with my comment?

Thanks, --Mark viking (talk) 17:09, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Sorry I didn't notice you had added a response, The section had been added by User Talk:Hyperbaric oxygen who is a blocked sockpuppet. I think you must have added the comment in between me looking at it and just editing the page to remove the section to the end of the page. If I'd noticed you'd responded I'd have hatted the whole business instead. One of those things I should be a bit more careful about. Dmcq (talk) 17:19, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
No worries, I just wanted to make sure that I had done nothing wrong. I'm still learning my way around WP. Thanks, --Mark viking (talk) 17:29, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

## That revert...

I don't quite understand the oint of that revert. I just noticed that WP:RULES redirected to that page, so I added it in. How does it interfere with Ignore allrules? Numbermaniac - T- C 00:41, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Many long standing editors on Wikipedia have a problem with saying the policies and guidelines are rules even if they are. The point of ignore all rules is to say there aren't any rules. If people start pointing to that saying they are rules they will just get into arguments with them. See WP:NOTLAW, those rules are supposed to just be accepted practice and subject to change by consensus.
I quite accept this is a bit of a fantasy just like the WP:NOTBUREAUCRACY which is another reference to that bit in WP:What Wikipedia is not. I hate though to think what it would be like if people were totally okay with the idea it was a bureaucracy with rules rather than people should just do what they felt was right to improve the encyclopaedia. The first paragraph of WP:POLICY describes what it should be like for most non-contentious articles, it is only if editors want to say Obama isn't American of push their thoughts about how good homeopathy is or something like that they should have problems and all that stuff becomes relevant. Dmcq (talk) 09:46, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
I see. Sorry about that then. But thanks! Numbermaniac - T- C 10:44, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

## Compass and straightedge

I did a google books and I found only two instance of compass-and-straightedge in the first 100 returns when I searched with"compass-and-straightedge". Therefore I do not believe the form with the hyphens is the common name form now. Dmcq (talk) 21:58, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

The first one I see says "Compass Constructions: Activities for Using a Compass and Straightedge". Obviously hyphens would be incorrect in that case, so we can't count that one. The third one say "Constructions by Compass and Straightedge". Obviously in that case the hyphen would be incorrect. The fourth one says "been shown that every construction possible with compass and straightedge can be done with". Obviously in that case a hyphen would be incorrect. The seventh one says "They restricted the tools to be used for creating geometrical figures to a compass and straightedge only". Obviously a hyphen would be incorrect there. The eighth one says "the classical construction with compass and straightedge runs as follows". Again a hyphen would be incorrect. The ninth one says "Solutions to the Three Historical Problems by Compass and Straightedge". Obviously a hyphen would be incorrect there. The tenth one says "The Compass and Straightedge represent the spiritual and material aspects of Nature and Life." Again, a hyphen would be incorrect. By what means did you filter out the instances like those in which use of a hyphen would by all standards be incorrect? Did you just do that manually and retain the first hundred of the other ones? Michael Hardy (talk) 01:43, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Which ones would you actually admit as okay for a hyphen? Anyway probably better to do this on the talk page of the article. Dmcq (talk) 14:44, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

"headquartered at Ebrington in Derry~Londonderry" and "The Parade Ground Ebrington Square Derry~Londonderry BT47 6JE". Its their style to use Derry~Londonderry. The entity is Culture Company 2013 Ltd. Murry1975 (talk) 19:21, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
Yes that's true they use their brand for everything they can even when not wholly appropriate. Dmcq (talk) 19:40, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
Sorry you seem to be saying that the brand is simply a style. That's not true. It is the brand and used in the logo. The company is a separate entity. Compare to London 2012 for instance which you could be sued for misusing. Dmcq (talk) 19:43, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

## Query

Does telling an ed to "Feck off" violate WP:Uncivolity? If you thought I was badgering,a trip to WP:THIRD would have demonstrated annoyance and desire to collaborate despite disagreement. Now I just expect you to be obstructionist. Was that the outcome you hoped for? NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 22:36, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Bugger off to WP:ANI if you wish to complain. Dmcq (talk) 23:00, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

## successive differences question on math desk in July

Hi thanks for your help on this question. If you're interested, i found the limit ratio to be e^(1/e) by fiddling with it symbolically, which is also close to the values of the terms up to n=11. e^(1/e) is slightly less than agm(1,2)._Rich Peterson 170.170.59.138 (talk) 08:57, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

## Talk:Music of Ireland

Hello Dmcq, I have added some text to the section you created here. Although I am aware of the fact that you are semi-retired, I'd be interested in co-operating with you on any changes that would help ameliorate the article. In summary, I am happy to do the work required and would appreciate the endorsement of a few editors such as yourself. Thank you for your consideration. With kind regards; Patrick. Pdebee (talk) 15:41, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Sorry I'm not at all interested in music. I was mainly interested in having the very long lists of musicians in the Ireland article removed or cut down to something that had some sort of reason to it but I didn't want to remove the names entirely so I moved them to the linked article.

## Thanks for bell curve image

Hi, Dmcq, thanks for putting the new bell curve image,[2] which it appears you created just yesterday, in the Intelligence quotient article. That is a better and more informative image than some other bell curve images I have seen in that article and related articles over the year, much in the same format and appearance as some of the images I have seen in the professional literature. I appreciate your work in putting that in wikispace and in the particular article. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 13:27, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

## RD

Where do questions about Wikipedia go in the RD? 78.156.109.166 (talk) 09:25, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

If you are asking about how to use Wikipedia then the help desk is the place to go, see 'Help' in the list on the left of the page. If you are asking general questions about Wikipedia the Miscellaneous reference desk is probably the best. I do not understand what you mean by "Would these questions apply to the whole world, or just me?" You need to be clear about what you are asking. We do not know you personally, we can only answer a question as written. Dmcq (talk) 12:52, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
I didn't know it meant what part of the world you're in. So. It should be that question you didn't understand was unneccessary, if "Tell us what part of the world your question applies to" means what part of the world you're in. For a possible better explanation. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Reference_desk/Computing#Would_these_questions_apply_to_the_whole_world.2C_or_just_me.3F
You should said you were referring to the guideline. Those were things for people to try and remember when asking a question so they don't put in questions like "How do I apply for social security?" without saying what country they're in. You can see the problem with you asking a question about something but not saying what you were talking about. Dmcq (talk) 00:46, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Also, why are you so active if it says you're semi-retired and no longer very active on your talk-page? 78.156.109.166 (talk) 20:44, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

I used to be much more active. Dmcq (talk) 00:46, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

## Wood & Wood flooring

Hello, sorry for my format mistake, you´re right,

, fixing it, thx --Euroescritor (talk) 12:12, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

I've already fixed it for floor, I sometimes do gnomish tasks like that! Dmcq (talk) 12:14, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

I¨m also thinking about creating a new category ( Wood Flooring ), but i guess i´ll have to do some research first, doesn´t look easy thing...thx for format support--Euroescritor (talk) 12:24, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

It is quite easy actually. One just uses the name as a a category and then click on the red link to put some basics in. DO an edit on a category to see what is needed, mostly just a link to another category to put it in. However looking in category:Floors I don't see all that many entries that one would put into a wood flooring category so I'm not sure it is worth setting one up. Dmcq (talk) 12:52, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi, i don´t understand the copyright issue, i haven´t implemented the changes from the site you´ve mention. We´ll have to talk a bit better this issue, greetings.--Euroescritor (talk) 07:03, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Stupid mistake on my part, my apologies. I have reinstated the changes. The source was in fact just moved around bit and the outside source had copied an old version of Wikipedia. Dmcq (talk) 09:28, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

No worries, with more people like you and i, we´ll have a better Wiki ;)--Euroescritor (talk) 11:07, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
