systemd in Ubuntu[edit]

You reverted my edit

As of December 2014 (possibly earlier), the daily builds have switched to the systemd init system instead of upstart.

With the reason

unsourced and inaccurate, systemd was used in 14.10

However, I do believe systemd was NOT enabled by default in 14.10. For example, [1] says systemd was a feature of the experimental "Ubuntu Desktop Next", which can only mean it was not enabled in non-experimental 14.10. As for sourcing, the source is in the text itself - just go try out the daily builds, as I did (in a virtual machine). As for the "unsourced", we do not require a footnote for everything, when the claim is obviously checkable by downloading freely available open source software. As an analogy, we don't require an explicit source footnote for every non-controversial statement in a Wikipedia book article summary either, since the source is obviously the book itself, which you can go read. Thue (talk) 21:02, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

I am running Lubuntu 14.10 and it has systemd, (apt-cache policy systemd systemd: Installed: 208-8ubuntu8.1 Candidate: 208-8ubuntu8.1) so yes to make a claim like this you would need a very clear ref cited. - Ahunt (talk) 21:09, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
Installed by default, or did you install it manually? (Also I just noted that you made that claim without a reference, but from from installing the software yourself :P ) Thue (talk) 21:31, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
Nope, it is installed by default. Here is the Launchpad ref that shows that systemd has been installed in Ubuntu since 14.04 LTS. - Ahunt (talk) 21:46, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I am pretty sure that 14.04 LTS did not use systemd as init system by default, so I think you are misreading something here. The fact that a systemd package exists in the repository is not the same as being used as the default init system. See for example here [2], [3]. Also, I think I have also been tricked :), and the 15.04 daily build does in fact not boot systemd even though some systemd components are installed; for example, journalctl has empty logs, which I don't think would be the case if systemd was really the init system. Thue (talk) 23:43, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
I think all we can tell from apt-cache policy systemd and from Launchpad is that it was installed starting with 14.04 LTS, but not what it has been used for. Is it being implemented in stages? Who knows? - Ahunt (talk) 23:50, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
This is fun, a check of LXTask shows that while Lubuntu 14.10 has 8 running upstart process, it also has two systemd process running continuously, so systemd is implemented and doing something. - Ahunt (talk) 15:35, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Mailing lists...[edit]

Hey! I saw your like. You might also be interested to know that I'm about 13 of the way through writing a new userscript that may interest you. User:Technical 13/Scripts/UpdateMailingList.js collects a list of users who have edited a page, collect a list of users currently listed on the page in the {{Mailing list member}} template, check the contributions and logs of each user in the list, and return an updated list. This will make it easy to see when the user was last active or if they are blocked and will update the template accordingly.  :) Happy editing! — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 15:10, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your note here. I saw that, it looks useful! - Ahunt (talk) 15:11, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Direct Fly sro[edit]

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Direct Fly sro requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

A discussion on the Linux distribution talk page[edit]

Hello! There's a somewhat lengthy content-related discussion in Talk:Linux distribution § Information on GNU/Linux that would really need input from more editors. It's about an ongoing disagreement on how should a Linux distribution be described, required level of coverage by references, and partially about the way article's lead section should reflect the article content. If you could provide any input there, I'd really appreciate it! — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 02:08, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Sure, let me have a detailed look! - Ahunt (talk) 03:24, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Thank you very much! — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 03:28, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done - Ahunt (talk) 19:28, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Thank you! Going through the whole lengthy discussion, and especially through the recent article history, was a quite time-consuming endeavor. :) Appreciate it! — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 06:33, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Glad that was helpful. The fact that I was at home sick for the day yesterday made it possible. - Ahunt (talk) 12:43, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Hope you're feeling better today. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 12:51, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, thank you. It seems to have been just a 24-hour bug. - Ahunt (talk) 12:53, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Good to hear, such "bugs" aren't that bad. :) — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 12:56, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Thankfully this one wasn't! We have H3N2 flu going around, so I am glad this wasn't that! - Ahunt (talk) 13:00, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Those flu "mutants" are scary things, to say at least. Ugh. Glad to hear you haven't caught it. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 13:29, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Strojnik S-2[edit]

Thank you for your comment and caution.

I believe that I have exercised appropriate care with the information I've inserted into the article, as I do with all my edits and new content.

It is an interesting fine line, however, when, a) the information is important, b) I am connected to it, and c) I'm THE expert. In this case, as the pilot for the speed record flight, I am the only source of information in the world about many aspects of the flight. I'm one of two people in the world who flew the airplane--the other being Professor Strojnik--and the only one still alive!

How does one go about preserving such information for posterity (the purpose of Wikipedia) in the most direct manner possible, at a reasonable cost to one's self in terms of time and effort invested?

Having said all that, if you still believe there is some bias in my edit that is a reflection of my connection to the subject, I will gladly receive your advice!

JohnDWashington (talk) 13:37, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your note here. I just wanted you to be aware of some of the cautions involved in writing about yourself, hence the note on your talk page. The web page you cited, which looks like you wrote it and is therefore WP:SPS and not really acceptable as a ref and is missing a few keys facts about the record flight, like the pilot's name, which is why I removed those sections from the article. Ultimately Wikipedia's policy says that if information hasn't been noted in independent third party references then the information isn't notable enough to be included in the encyclopedia. Essentially we need some reliable third party sources.- Ahunt (talk) 14:21, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

By longstanding consensus the term "GNU/Linux" is considered POV and not used not used on Wikipedia[edit]

There are 1140 articles using that term, this is not a credible assertion. ~~ Xb2u7Zjzc32 (talk) 21:33, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

By longstanding consensus operating systems that use the Linux kernel are called "Linux" on Wikipedia, as per WP:COMMONNAME. "GNU/Linux" is considered a minority POV term used by the FSF and its supporters. On Wikipedia the term is only used to describe distros when the distro itself is called "GNU/Linux" and then only when referring to the distro itself. If you want to change this consensus then the way to go about is not by trying to insert the term GNU/Linux into articles on distributions. You should read Talk:Linux including all the archives of that page, to get the history of the problem as well as Talk:Linux/Name as this is where past consensuses have been formed. You will also want to read GNU/Linux naming controversy and its talk page as background as well. When you have the history of the consensus read then you can present your case at Talk:Linux to try to convince the other editors that all references "Linux" other than to the kernel itself in Wikipedia should be changed to "GNU/Linux". Be advised that this has been brought up dozens of times there, including recently and has always been soundly and conclusively opposed. - Ahunt (talk) 01:07, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Also, please see MOS:LINUX, which belongs to the Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Computing that lists "guidelines for creating and editing articles on computers, software, networking, the Internet and information technology". — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 11:48, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Manjaro Linux ‎ (Writing "HACKED!" means nothing to readers.)[edit]

Writing "HACKED!" is an attempt to be concise in the infobox. The explanation is evident in the footnoted links, you did not refer to them before undoing my first edit. "This site may harm your computer" is a higher level of warning. "ref provides an opinion only, no evidence" These are determined by the googlebot system, the most relied upon opinion on the internet. ~~ Xb2u7Zjzc32 (talk) 21:48, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

In fact I did read both your refs and, as I said, it provides no evidence or even an explanation boiler plate text, just . If pages were replaced or altered then it should be trivial for Google to show the diffs as a reason. Writing "Hacked!" in the infobox will be meaningless for most readers, is totaly unclear as to what it is referring to and therefore is not helpful in an encyclopedia. Regardless whether Google thinks the website might have been hacked, I don't believe that possible website issues are notable enough for inclusion in an encyclopedia article, see WP:NOTNEWS. - Ahunt (talk) 01:14, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Cessna 310[edit]

Ahunt, what a strange thing. I won't quibble, but it's odd to me that project guidelines recommend standard phrasing without any regard for verification--or whether it's even true or not. There is no need for a cn tag? The way I read those guidelines they apply to every single aircraft (despite the "specific aircraft types" in the lead), even if only one was ever built. Odd. Drmies (talk) 15:46, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

It is a consensus standard wording, but is applied with some discretion and experience by the WikiProject Aircraft editors. In the case of most light aircraft built in large numbers, like the Cessna 172 or Piper PA-28 it is really analogous to a WP:BLUESKY sort of statement. For one-off aircraft, homebuilts, microlights, gliders and other types some desecration is used as it wouldn't apply. This measure was put in place a few years ago, primary to stop spamming, as we had people adding links to their small aviation companies operating fleets of light aircraft as a form of advertising. - Ahunt (talk) 14:21, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Netkiosk-CS Deletion[edit]

Trophy.png Netkiosk-CS Deletion
Not sure where to type a message for you as like with some many sites Wikipedia is also not that easy to use.

Not sure why you removed the Entire information about Netkiosk-CS as it is all factual. You have other businesses showing that also require citation. That is why I added the citation part to allow a reputable source to add a reference.

I know it is often easier to press delete then to properly verify, do some reading and checking and then edit it.

I am open to all help and assistance in making sure listing are accurate and relevant. Simply deleting a listing is not helpful to anyone.

You have this one for example

CoolNovo, called ChromePlus prior to January 2012, is a Chromium-based browser for Windows and Linux. It adds features such as mouse gestures, link dragging and IE tabs.[127] (Last version: 29 August 2013 with core version 27.0.1453.110[128]). Jtmkiosksystems (talk) 16:05, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Happy kids' memories playing at the Manston plane graveyard[edit]

First moved to Margate in 71. I was about ten. Me and a kid called Luigi used to make Airfix kits and play on the planes in the graveyard before they were burned. I "flew" almost every front line and transport plane in the RAF inventory from the 50s and 60s. Once a complete Vulcan bomber was there. I stood on Luigi's shoulders but we still couldnt reach the underbelly hatch. We were about 11. One summer day we were "flying" when a big RAF sergeant cop turned up. He gave us a stern but not unfriendly lecture, using highly technical terms, about little boys getting their legs and arms removed by still active "control surfaces" because the "hydraulics" were still functioning. (Had to go home and look the latter up) We never went back. Then moved to Ramsgate which was even nearer, that was 74. Was sad to see the big black plumes of smoke. They would rise what seemed like miles. Sorry to clutter up your T/P, just brought it all back. Cheers mate! Irondome (talk) 18:17, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
