Relocation (computing) image[edit]

Hi Peter, regarding real-time computing, I was thinking of manual braking, but anti-lock has the computerized ABS anti-lock braking system, which does mean it qualifies as a valid example. It's the speed sensor monitoring that qualifies it in real-time. Good call. MM MightyMaven (talk) 06:53, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

I've just been reading the Relocation_(computing) article, and noticed a minor error in this nice table you made:

Relocation example.tif

The first address in the first machine code box should be 0, not 1.

As it's an image rather than text, could you please fix this when you have the time?

TOS 360[edit]

There wasn't a lot of comment, but it seems like your TOS 360 merge idea is approved (See Talk:TOS/360). Due to a huge 3-year backlog, WP Merge is not able to perform it for you. So, please go ahead and do the merge yourself. The general process:

  1. I would suggest that you open each article in tabs on your web browser, and hit the edit button on both.
  2. Cut content out of TOS 360 and paste to DOS 360.
  3. Once the content has been moved, save DOS 360 with the edit summary "Merged in TOS/360".
  4. On TOS/360, delete everything and replace with "#REDIRECT [[DOS/360 and successors]] {{R from merge}}". Use "Redirect after merge to DOS/360 and successors" as an edit summary.
  5. On Talk:TOS/360, add "{{merged-to|DOS/360 and successors|date you merged}}" to the top of the page.
  6. On Talk:DOS/360 and successors, add "{{merged-from|TOS/360|date you merged}}" to the top of that page.

The merged-to and merged-from tags are important due to our copyright (see WP:Merge and delete), which requires that page histories are always preserved as long as they are used in articles.

Thanks, D O N D E groovily Talk to me 12:38, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

IBM 2741[edit]

The code chart is a nice add. Do you have the codes for shift in, shift out, space, circle-C, etc.? How about the "correspondence" code? I'll do the table work if you can ship me a reference chart... I ditched my 2741 manuals decades ago. Jeh (talk) 00:54, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

The charts are in the manual that's the first external link. I have plans to add the control codes, but probably won't do the other code charts for now, so if you want to do it, have at it.Peter Flass (talk) 11:41, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

A question about Grand Union Hotel (Saratoga Springs, New York)[edit]

I noticed your edit noting the proposed hotel at Congress Plaza. The coordinates on the article show that the hotel was on the site of the current building, 321 Broadway aka Congress Park Centre, which houses Cold Stone, the Gap, etc. I don't think the Grand Union was at the Congress Plaza site because that is not on Broadway, it is set back about a block. Do you have a source confirming the location? Listroiderbobtalk'tribs 03:27, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Henry Walton[edit]

I added an image to Henry Walton (American painter), which i think would be a nice addition to the article on the gold rush itself. thanks for creating an article on this artist.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 20:14, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

SSRR[edit]

Hello Peter, I saw you posted a pix of one of the aquducts of the old Saratoga and Schenectady RR. I am trying to find other engineering pieces of the old road and could use your help. I cannot find a map that shows me the old route that could be traced. Do you know of one? Thanks DonDrittner (talk) 18:52, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Interrupts[edit]

Hello there, and thank you very much for your correction on the Interrupt article! Simply awesome, and I'm so glad that someone actually reviews all those changes to the articles. :) — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 11:59, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

About Software Engineering Associates, Inc.[edit]

Hello Peter_Flass! I've noticed that you have created an article about the company mentioned in the heading of this section. At first, it seems to me an article compatible with the A7 criteria for speedy deletion, because the article "does not indicate why its subject is important or significant". Since you are an experienced editor, instead of just requesting a speedy deletion I'm contacting you to understand whether the article could be modified to provide one or more hints about the importance or notability of the discussed subject. Best regards! LowLevel73(talk) 03:50, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

"Is this BE"?[edit]

Not unless BE stands for Bad English, it isn't… thanks for reverting. Bishonen | talk 13:14, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

PIC code -- your recent edit[edit]

The entire article is religious and thus should be removed according to your NPOV policy... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.73.228.23 (talk) 23:22, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Honeywell Level 6[edit]

Thanks for creating the Honeywell Level 6 page, which I've contributed to today. I joined Honeywell "L6TAC" (Level 6 Technical Assistance Centre) as a graduate in 1984 and worked on this series through to when I left to join IBM in 1991, still have good knowledge and fond memories of it. I'm also still in touch with many co-workers from this time so I think it's possible to contribute a lot to this article from our collective memories. I'll spread the word. The main challenge is being able to find suitable citations from this pre-WWW era. The only reasonably detailed and accurate citation for the Unix coprocessor is blacklisted on Wikipedia (have added it to the talk page for now).

An anecdote for Christmas: The GCOS 6 Office Automation System (WP6 / OAS / ONE Plus) word processor was actually written in an interpreted language created specially for the purpose, called "Gospel". Needless to say, the interpreter, built into the word processing executable, was called "The Preacher". Best wishes Sandvika (talk) 17:34, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

File:WhiteSulphurSpring Springhouse.jpg[edit]

Hi Peter, I am attempting to add coordinates to the article White Sulphur Spring and saw your photograph. Can you identify where the photo was taken?  B E C K Y S A Y L E 20:25, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Microprocessor versions of IBM S/360[edit]

This is probably TMI for System call, but there were microprocessor versions of the S/360 line of processors; I believe that the P/390 and R/390 were the last ones. Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz Username:Chatul (talk) 21:09, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Bära, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Prim (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
