Your recent edit to Deoxycytidine (diff) was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to recognize and repair vandalism to Wikipedia articles. If the bot reverted a legitimate edit, please accept my humble creator's apologies – if you bring it to the attention of the bot's owner, we may be able to improve its behavior.

Welcome to Wikipedia![edit]

Welcome!

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions.

Currently, you are editing without a username. You can continue to do so, as you are not required to log in to Wikipedia to read and edit articles; however, logging in will result in a username being shown instead of your IP address (yours is 71.41.210.146). Logging in does not require any personal details, and there are many other benefits for logging in.

When you edit pages:

  • Please respect others' copyrights; do not copy and paste the contents from webpages directly.
  • Please use a neutral point of view when editing articles; this is possibly the most important Wikipedia policy.
  • If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to do so.
  • Do not add unreasonable contents into any articles, such as copyrighted text, advertisement messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Adding such content or editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism.

The Wikipedia Tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. For now, if you are stuck, you can click the edit this page tab above, type {{helpme}} in the edit box, and then click Save Page; an experienced Wikipedian will be around shortly to answer any questions you may have. Also feel free to ask a question on my talk page. I will answer your questions as far as I can! Thank you again for contributing to Wikipedia. Fvasconcellos (t·c) 01:38, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

This is your last warning for editing Alanine (diff). The next time you vandalize a page, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. // MartinBot 00:42, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Misunderstanding[edit]

Ah, reviewing your contributions more closely, I've found that the block was in error. Now, the reason why you were blocked in the first place was due to a report on WP:AIV by a bot named "User:MartinBot". This bot works as an anti-vandalism bot, reverting edits that it deems to be "nonsense". Your edits were reverted immediately by this bot, due to the somewhat random nature of the SMILES formulae. MartinBot automatically reports editors who have vandalized more than four times to the bot section of the Administrator Intervention against Vandalism page. Administrators rarely check the contributions of a user when it has been reported by MartinBot because the bot very rarely makes mistakes. I hope you accept my humblest apologies for this block; it was a general misunderstanding between the parties. Cheers, Sean William 03:19, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

In the future, if you wish to be unblocked, place the {{unblock}} template on your talk page or send the blocking administrator an e-mail. Sean William 03:21, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

AFC's on hold[edit]

Hi there! Because your request requires a rename of an existing page, I'd like to make sure that there is consensus within the community to make the move. I posted on the article talk page, so perhaps if you would like to communicate with other users interested in the telescopes and point me to that I would be happy to do the move for you! Basically, I don't want to step on any toes if the move is controversial, and I requested expert assistance because I'm not at all knowledgable about the topic. Are you aware of any controversy that making the move might cause, or can you provide me with some resources so I can learn more about the topic? Thanks for staying involved, and I'd like to make sure that your requests are dealt with! --Xnuala (talk)(Review) 23:35, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

You've definitely convinced me. I see no controversy evident, and appreciate the time you have taken to educate me on the topic! The move shall be performed shortly. Have you thought at all about registering for an account? No pressure, you are definitely welcome to contine contributing as an IP if you wish.--Xnuala (talk)(Review) 00:59, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Ok, all done! Let me know if you have any other requests!--Xnuala (talk)(Review) 01:10, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

T.H. Huxley page[edit]

Dear 71, Thanks for your input, which I've adjusted so that the article follows the same pattern right through (as per Wiki editing guidelines).

First, I've added a Hux-Wilberforce debate sub-section. As the article is much longer than it was these sign-posts are needed.

Lucas 1979 ref was already in the reference section under Links, and yes, I did read it! Now I've added it to the sub-section Hux-Wilberforce debate as a standard reference. The Browne and Desmond references already there contain a whole slew of previous refs to this topic (there are many), and are actually the best sources. But I'm happy to have Lucas in even though it's something of a minority view. And direct to the on-line version is still available in Links.

Because the article now has detailed accounts in sub-sections, details need not be put in the intro. Readability of intros is important. So you'll find the exact date of the debate in the sub-section. Everything in the intro is well justified by what follows. The Encyc Brit link is an exception, because that was the starting point for so many Wiki stubs. Macdonald-ross 15:13, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Regarding edits to Mistress Matisse[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia, 71.41.210.146! However, your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove spam from Wikipedia. If you were trying to insert a good link, please accept my creator's apologies, but note that the link you added, matching rule libsyn\.com, is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia.

Hyphens and n-dashes[edit]

Is there any particular reason for your pathological hatred of hyphens? Why are you changing them to n-dashes? Grant | Talk 10:16, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Because they're often used incorrectly in Wikipedia, as people aren't used to typing the proper dashes, even though they're the first things available in the Insert box at the bottom of every edit page. See [Dash] for full details.
It just happens to annoy me, so since I'm improving wikipedia in a small but finite way, and the difficulty of making the edit is very low, I do it a lot. Most recently, I edited every link to Philippines campaign (1944-45), making it link to the page (that it already redirected to) whose title properly includes an en-dash, Philippines campaign (1944–45). 71.41.210.146 02:21, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
D'oh, I beg your pardon; you obviously know what you're doing :-) I'm too used to the reverse case, in which people use hyphens in place of n-dashes or even m-dashes.
As a hard-working and valuable contributor, I suggest you create a Wikipedia account, there are a lot of advantages if you do. Grant | Talk 02:59, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Re: WWVB[edit]

I made this edit so it matched up with the time code diagram above and the weighting of the other fields in the time code. -- Denelson83 07:34, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

I have reverted your last change. The statements "as of 24:00Z today" and "as of 00:00Z today" don't make any sense. My wording makes sense to me because you're "adding up" the values of the DST status bits. -- Denelson83 07:07, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

The reversion to the coordinates table was accidental, and has been undone. The DST status explanation as you put it doesn't match up with the status explanation in the graphic. The wording that I use explains the sequential nature of the DST status bits in a clear and concise way. Plus, I don't think very many readers are going to want to wrap their heads around ISO 8601. -- Denelson83 08:13, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Apologies but I've not finished this yet and I'm about to go away for the week. It's possible I won't be able to post a reply until a week on Monday. Hope you can wait this long. JMiall 06:03, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
And a second lot of apologies for the long delay. I hope to have some time at the weekend to get back to this. JMiall 23:28, 30 July 2009 (UTC)


Comments on new section for PCI article[edit]

(please post these to the talkpage there if you wish):

  • You asked first of all if it read well to someone unfamiliar with the specs. I think that basically it does.
  • I'm a bit worried though that there is too much detail, I'm not sure where is a good place to draw the line though. Possibly all this information should be split off to (an)other article(s) and summarised within this one?
  • I've not looked at everything you have put on the talkpage yet, I'll come back with some more comments if you found these useful.

Specific questions/issues to be going on with:

  • Why is "asserted" in quotes?
  • 'controlled by 5 main control signals' etc - is signal the right word here? ie are FRAME# etc the name of a particular line or the signals that are present on that line?
  • Also the when the lines/signals are mentioned they sometimes are put in brackets, sometimes commas and sometimes nothing.
  • 'will remain high' - add 'voltage', also voltage needs linking in the main article
  • 'each bus line be undriven' - given the potential for confusion for someone not too familiar with English is it possible to reword?
  • Link Pull-up resistor
  • 'Signals nominally change' - should this be 'nominally' or 'normally'? Is the spec not specific about precisely when they should change?
  • The wording rather implies at that all the PCI devices are concious intelligent beings. It is probably worth toning this down a bit. ie 'decides', 'promise', 'generally attempt', 'desire'
  • '(There are rules for how it is supposed to behave, but they will be mysterious to any single device.)' - is this necessary?
  • link 'bus master'?
  • 'but may not start one unless it observes GNT# asserted the cycle before it begins a transaction' - unclear 'it's
  • 'so there are actually three signals' - fairly colloqial language
  • 'Actually, it has 2.5 cycles' - 'they' not 'it'?
  • 'On the fifth cycle...' - I'm unsure what this paragraph means.
  • 'Access to PCI configuration space is a special case' - of what?
  • 'enables' - link or explain?
  • 'In case of a write' - missing 'the'
  • 'more purely'?
  • Several times you use 'read' or 'write' when it would probably be clearer to use 'read signal' or something similar
  • 'line turns around during' - what does turns around mean here?

Main article:

  • 'However, they are not wired in parallel as are the other traces' - this needs explaining. Traces have not been mentioned yet and it is unclear what this means any way due to the 'are not...as are...' JMiall 23:16, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

"proper minus sign" at WWVB[edit]

Unfortunately if someone now does a text search on the page for "-17", they won't find it. Jeh (talk) 10:13, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, it's a bit of a pain. Using a hyphen sure looks a lot worse. Hopefully, browsers will start considering the variants different "cases" and so will match if case-insensitive matching is desired. I don't know a perfect solution. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 23:28, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

The time code format table WWVB[edit]

One thought I had was to add a fourth column, "value of bit from example diagram." Put an M in those cells for the markers. One thing that has stopped me from doing that is that I can't think of a concise column heading. Is it ok to use an asterisk and explain it in a footnote to the table? Jeh (talk) 18:31, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

I used "Ex" as a column header, which I think is good enough. Done. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 23:29, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Definitely so, with the added text in the "meaning" column. Better than I'd envisioned! Thanks! Jeh (talk) 01:48, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
So based on your example I did the analagous thing at WWV (radio station). Would not have tackled the table munging without seeing what you'd done. Thanks again. Jeh (talk) 04:20, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Conflicted licensing on image File:ApolloLunarEscapeSystemExample.jpg[edit]

The above noted image or media file appears to have conflicted licensing. As an image cannot be both 'free' and 'unfree', a check of the exact status of this media/image concerned is advised.Sfan00 IMG (talk) 19:21, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Er, why can't it be both free and non-free? As the Template:PD-Pre1978 says, it's in the public domain in the United States. It might be non-free in other jurisdictions; I'm not certain enough to remove the other notice. (If you are, feel free.) 71.41.210.146 (talk) 06:55, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
If it has ANY non-free component that it cannot be tagged as PD, but if you can prove it was first published in the US prior to 1978 then only the PD-Pre 1978 is applicable...
Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:34, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Easily enough done, as the image description links to the original source as a scanned PDF, which is dated June 1970 and does not bear a copyright notice. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 12:59, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Changes and requested change[edit]

First, let me say how happy I am that someone is using it.

With that out of the way, I made it so long ago that I'm not quite sure why I put the trailing brs, I think it was something to do with a spacing problem. That aside, as said, it's been awhile since I've made it, but I'm fairly certain you should be able to specify a custom color. I'll check the code after this message to check.— dαlus Contribs 23:14, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

The parameters you want should be fontcolor1 and fontcolor2, as well as background2 for the blue part of the bar being something other than blue. As to the computed percentage, I'll get to work on that.— dαlus Contribs 23:37, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Lists of earthquakes[edit]

Hi, thanks for taking the discussion on this to the talk page. Would you consider removing or rewording the "This list is heavily biased to recent years or due to the development and widespread deployment of seismometers. Large earthquakes were not less common in the past, just records detailed enough to make magnitude estimates." text from the main page until this is resolved, since it reads like a personal viewpoint? (At least the second sentence, and perhaps change "This list is" to "This list may be".) I agree your statement is correct, just not worded well. The article is likely being heavily hit at the moment due to links from the Japanese earthquake article, so it's important it look good, thus me contacting you instead of letting this work itself out more leisurely. –flodded(gripe) 16:20, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Someone else found a reference, so I edited it lightly enough to not break WP:3RR... I think it's mostly fine now, though still reads slightly biased but that could just be me. –flodded(gripe) 17:46, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

End of validity of IDEA patent[edit]

In International_Data_Encryption_Algorithm 71.41.210.146/you wrote, circa May 19, 2009 about U.S. Patent 5,214,703, issued May 25, 1993, that is has an expiry date of January 7, 2012.

That date was later justified by another user with this reasoning:

"Note that the PGP FAQ still claims the expiry date of the US patent to be May 25, 2010. However, US patent law was changed in 1995 such that patents now expire 20 years after filing, not 17 years after issuing. This holds retroactively for all patents that had not yet expired at the time the changed law came into effect, and it thus holds for IDEA."

Agreed, the stated change in patent law did occur and does applies retroactively to U.S. 5,214,703. But IMHO the patent still expires 17 years from issue date, that is after May 25, 2010 as claimed in the PGP FAQ.

The key point is that the protection under the new law, as defined by 35 U.S.C. 154(a)(2), lasts "20 years from the date on which the application for the patent was filed in the United States or, if the application contains a specific reference to an earlier filed application or applications under section 120, 121, or 365(c) of this title, from the date on which the earliest such application was filed.". The patent claims priority w.r.t. a Swiss patent filed May 18, 1990, and that is the start of the 20 years period, which thus ends May 18, 2010, that is slightly before the end of the 17 year period which ends May 25, 2010. The protection afforded to the licensee by the old law is NOT removed retroactively, and thus protection ends May 25, 2010.

I located the Swiss patent by checking under foreign priority in the status of the US patent 5214703 at <http://portal.uspto.gov/external/portal/pair>

I am open to contradiction, and more than willing to examine any reference to the January 7, 2012 date.

Fgrieu (talk) 16:44, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

It sounds like you're right (you considered a detail I didn't), but you could explain the logic better: patents pending when the change was made (like this one) got the benefit of both rules, so the later of the two dates applies. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 19:46, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Correction: which of the three named sections (120, 121, or 365(c)) do you think applies? I see how 365(a) applies, but I'm not sure about 365(c). Do you understand that bit about "designating"? 71.41.210.146 (talk) 20:03, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
I have started a discussion at Talk:International Data Encryption Algorithm#Patent expiration date. 71.41.210.146 (talk) 20:47, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
In my reading of 35 U.S.C. 154(a)(2), the applicable section would be 120 referencing 363: "An application for patent for an invention disclosed (..properly..) in an application previously filed (..) as provided by section 363 of this title (..reading:) An international application designating the United States shall have the effect, from its international filing date under article 11 of the treaty, of a national application for patent regularly filed in the Patent and Trademark Office except (..)". I am not at all sure about all this, but at one point was told (on another case) by a real patent lawyer that the "foreign priority" section is precisely here to record which foreign patents shall serve as reference for both the start and end of the protection period, that is 20 years from the moment the first patent on the subject was submitted. My reasoning depends heavilly on that. At any rate, if the Swiss patent does not suit, the WIPO/EPO patent could, and that would put the reference filing date on May 16th, 1991, and expiry on May 16th, 2011 together with the EP patent. As of "designating", I understand this as the statement to the patent office of what foreign patent the applicant ask shall serve to establish the start (and end) of the protection period, which is to be performed as required in section 120.Fgrieu (talk) 05:37, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

EM6600 core[edit]

EM Microelectronics, part of The Swatch Group makes a series of ultra-low-power 4-bit microcontrollers, the EM66xx series. These are Mask ROM microcontrollers, although higher-power EEPROM versions (EM65xx) are available for development purposes.

These processors have 16-bit instructions, 12-bit ROM addresses (up to 4096 instruction words), and 7-bit (128 nibble) RAM space, of which up to 96 nibbles are available as general-purpose RAM.

The instruction set is accumulator based, with most instructions operating on the accumulator and a specified RAM locations. Additionally, two RAM nibbles (0x6E=IXLow and 0x6F=IXHigh) make an index register which may be used as a pointer register to select arbitrary RAM locations.

3 12-bit program counters make up a hardware stack. This allows one level of subroutine calling plus an interrupt, or up to two levels of subroutine calls when interrupts are disabled.

A status register provides Z and C flags. All registers which write the accumulator also set the flags. Logical and move-to-accumulator instructions clear the carry bit. Stores do not affect the flags.

The only instructions which depend on the carry flag are the conditional jumps.

Non-immediate operands come in two forms, dependong on the value of the I bit:

  • If I=0. the operand is specified by the 7-bit register field.
  • If I=1, the operand is specified by the IX register pair. The mnemonic has "X" appended, and no register operand is provided. (E.g. ADDX)

ALU operations may also be modified by the S bit. If this is set, the menmonic has S appended, and the instruction performs a 5-bit rotate right through the carry bit after the ALU operation. The carry in is from the ALU result (0 for logical operations), and the carry out is the lsbit of the ALU result.

The 32 ALU instructions include all 16 2-input binary operations. Not all are documented, but it is clear that 4 bits of the instruction are used as a lookup table.

Instructions use an 8-bit register specifier field. Values up to 127 select registers in RAM. If the most significant bit is set, the index register is used, and the register operand is replaced with an X suffix on the opcode. Because conventionally unused bits are set to 1, indexed instructions always end in hex FF and it would be easy to extend the architecture to 255 nibbles of RAM by assigning addresses 128–254.

Yes, please go ahead; these things can happen when someone like me sees a partial change before the entire change is made and takes it as a complete change. Luckily, it does not happen often but it can happen without ill purpose from either the writer or editor. My initial message is still largely valid: My mistake. I jumped the gun. Go ahead and complete the work, which will undoubtedly fix what I thought I saw in the partial change. I apologize for the inconvenience and delete the warning.
