Edit I made to djbdns[edit]

Since, as the author of MaraDNS, I have a conflict of interest, I have notifying other editors that I have just made a minor neutral edit correcting a factual error. The article stated that there exists three forks of DJBdns; I know of at least five, so I changed the wording to “a number of”. Here is the edit:

My personal opinion is that N-DJBDNS is the best fork out there; yeah, it’s GPL, but it’s the only fork I know of that is current with all known security issues in DJBdns (which, of course, is very secure, with only five issues coming up in its 15 year of existence).

It seems that you have been editing Microsoft-related articles, so why don't you consider joining WikiProject Microsoft, not to be confused with WikiProject Microsoft Windows. WikiProject Microsoft is a group of editors who are willing to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Microsoft, its technologies, Web-based sites and applications, its important people, and share interests regarding Microsoft. This WikiProject is in the process of being revived and is welcoming any and all editors who are willing to help out with the process. Add your name to the list at Wikipedia:WikiProject Microsoft/Participants and/or add the userbox {{User WikiProject Microsoft}}. Thanks! STJMLCC (talk) 18:04, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Sam Donaldson Talk Additions, and Edits[edit]

Dear Anastrophe:

   Sorry you did not like, or could not use, the comments I left regarding Sam's career at ABC news.  I was not trying to be conversational, merely letting you know my recollections.  I actually liked him ... and was sorry to see him slip into the background as a news reporter.  I tried to offer some reasons... Anyway, you might want to keep what I have written, on reserve, as a reference of sorts.

Old business[edit]

Hello, Anastrophe. I hope this post finds you well.

I would like to invite you to confer with me on the federal AWB talk page to finish up some old business that stalled some months ago. I believe we had nearly reached some agreement on the "Criteria of an assault weapon" section of that article. Our last discussion is archived at Compromise on cosmetic.

RSN notice[edit]

I have started a discussion at RSN called Gun show loophole that you may be interested in. Lightbreather (talk) 00:16, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

A favor, por favor[edit]

I can't initiate a Good Article reassessment of Gun violence in the United States because I'm not allowed to create the necessary page. Would you be able to do that for me? I think this is the link:[1], or there's one for "community reassessment" at the top of the talk page. Here's the reason I'm asking for a reassessment: (five tildes gives a timestamp).

  • The article has not been reassessed since 2006 and there've been a lotta changes since then. Two big problems: the intro doesn't summarize the article, and it contains repetitive, non-neutral text. [[user:]] ~~~~~

If it's a request you'd rather not fulfill I'll ask someone else next time I'm logged on here. (talk) 18:20, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

There's more! After it's created it needs to be transluded:
  • 3.Transclude your review onto the article talk page by adding {{Talk:ArticleName/GAn}} to the bottom of the last section on the article talk page: you need to replace ArticleName and n by the name of the article and the subpage number.
That should be {{Talk:Gun violence in the United States/Wikipedia:Good article reassessment/Gun violence in the United States/2}}. I hope. This is more work than I thought. Sorry! All the more reason to blow it off. (talk) 18:29, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
I'm no longer an illegal alien on Wikipedia. I should be able to handle this myself now. Pardon the bother. Felsic (talk) 15:15, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
