Thanks Elipongo, always nice to get cookies from strangers. I am a year-round cyclist too! You can see some of my bike efforts at Bicycle CARcass, Bicycle Bee, Pedal Revolutionary Radio Show and VeloRuption. Peace and thanks for the treats. ifny (talk) 06:54, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Jennette[edit]

Hiya Ifny, out of curiosity, what made you revert your edit to Jeannette Piccard? The resulting sentence could really use a reference, but on the face of it, the edit appeared helpful...

Hi there Ohms law, well, /me is red in the face...basically I followed a trail of breadcrumbs that led from Auguste to Jeannette, and missed Jean entirely (I assumed that the author was referring to Jeannette as she was popularly known at the time, in the familiar 'Jean'). The section reads quite differently in that context. Characterizing Jean's removal from the project for being "annoying" is too vague; I intended to clarify it by contextualizing it within the rest of the section. Upon further reading I realised my mistake and reverted post haste! But I see my scratchings didn't go unnoticed darnit. Hopefully someone will be able to expand on the subject of how husband Jean specifically "annoyed" the powers that be. ifny (talk) 23:39, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
Ah... I think that I understand. I must admit that I'm not terribly familiar with the subject, but I have some interest in the subject area which her bio falls under (NASA related articles). I'm keen on seeing the article continue to improve is all, which is all that drew the edit and reversion to my attention. No need to be embarrassed, at least you were able to catch (the mistake?) it and revert it yourself. Face-smile.svg

Yes, I'm relieved to have caught it myself first, saving others the trouble. And glad to satisfy your curiosity :P As for myself I'm interested in unusual figures who 'go against the grain', and follow the legacy of women of scientific inquiry. At any rate, nice to make your acquaintance and see you around the neighbourhood. ifny (talk) 21:00, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
