Thanks for you note about the changes in the Hendy's Law information. I had not noticed it was all gone.
I originally had a dedicated page about it but after some debate it was taken down. The main argument was lack of references - which I think now is not a problem.
I also put some stuff on both the digital camera page and on the Moore's law page but I see that has all been taken down.
In terms of references ... there are quite a few now. I even noticed recently that there is a Youtube video tutorial about it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUjBIlTuLLo
That was news to me!
A few other references include:
These are just a few I know of ...
I have also been contacted by a few researchers who wanted to know a bit more about the topic.
I have not done much on Wikipedia - at the time I posted all this i got some flaming because my user name is obviously my name. I was a bit bemused ... I thought it was a bit deceitful to create an abstract name but it seems that was preferred! i have avoided joining in the discussions as I felt I was looked at a bit strange ....
The data is certainly a bit old now. I really should up date it with some recent cameras and see how the projections look - but I know the last time I did that - a few years back - it looked surprisingly good.
I still have a copy of the content from the original Wikipedia page. If you would like to repost it so it is not in my name - that would be great .... I probably should update the data for you though?
- Hi Barry. Sorry about your bad experience on Wikipedia. We hear stories like yours a lot and many are trying to address it but it seems to be part of the culture. Maybe knowing that people bite newbies will help you not take it personally.
- I will start by restoring the text to the Moore's law article. The two issues that caused it to be removed were:
- There were no references. The references you supply above will address that nicely
- There was a claim that the exponential plot was manipulated. You redoing it might help but the real solution would be for an independent source to create their own plot. I will hold off on restoring the diagram until there's some progress on this. ~KvnG 15:03, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
You asked who would do the merge for this article. After the AfD was closed, I decided to give it a try. Feel free to check my work and make alterations--it's the first time I've done a merge and could have missed something. --Mark viking (talk) 04:43, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
- What about the Applications section of the old article? ~KvnG 15:24, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
- In List of military electronics of the United States most list entries with annotations have a short single line of description, so I created the same for AN/TAS-4. Merging in the applications section seemed like adding undue weight, but feel free to do so if you like. --Mark viking (talk) 17:06, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
Potential sockpuppet of Levineps
Recently, User:Oriole85 (contribs) has been sporadically popping up on my watchlist for category-related changes. A lot of new users do that, so it wasn't a particularly noteworthy thing for me. But then he kept showing up with a higher frequency, oftentimes making (what I thought to be) completely unnecessary over-categorizations to articles. I've been on Wikipedia long enough to know that User:Levineps (contribs) is one of the most notorious over-categorizers we've ever seen (and has the community sanctions, block records, and bans to show for it). So, I did about two minutes' worth of research and discovered that Oriole85's account was created / his edits began on November 5, 2013. When was the last edit by Levineps? November 4, 2013. That is not a coincidence IMO. I don't have (a) the time right now, nor (b) the motivation to formally open an SPI, but I'm hoping that one of the many people I'm notifying about this does. If you're wondering why you're being pinged about this, it's because I saw where you were one of the people who has left messages on Levineps' talk page at some point regarding his inappropriate editing. So now, in addition to all of the aforementioned issues with Levineps, it looks like a probably sockpuppet to throw into the mix. Jrcla2 (talk) 05:30, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
