- Hi! I've always wanted a LEGO RCX but my user-name actually comes from the "CX" variable in in assembly language programming. The "R" in front of it means "read" in the assembler I use. (RCX 02:04, 11 March 2006 (UTC))
The Samuel Blatchford article that already exists does not concern the first president of Rensselaer School.
- Thank you for telling me this! (RCX 19:36, 16 April 2006 (UTC))
- No problem. Besselfunctions 22:33, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
RPI Wikipedia party
Hi there. I'm currently an undergraduate at RPI organizing a little Wikipedia get-together this Thursday from 2-6pm in the Nason classroom. The plan is to both introduce members of the RPI community who already contribute to Wikipedia, and also try and introduce more people to editing. If you're around you're welcome to come hang out. Check it out and let me know if you're interested. Thanks. -FrankTobia (talk) 16:32, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for asking for constructive criticism. It's an important part of improving wikipedia overall.
It's generally really tough to save weapons articles and they usually get deleted. But one thing that tends to stand up well in wikipedia is lists of characters. If you combined all of them into "list of characters in Ace Combat", I bet you'd have a stronger article altogether. That could incorporate the countries, the organizations, and maybe a brief note about where they're all situated (the map). That's why I recommended the weapons article for deletion, but felt that the other articles deserved a fair chance at cleanup. Feel free to ask any further questions at my talk page, and keep in mind that it's just my own opinion. Randomran (talk) 22:53, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
Hi rCX, thanks for your help on the MASM article, the page still needs a lot of work on it but I was wary of changing it too fast as I have seen anonymous reversion wars in the past from people who have an axe to grind on various technical issues. I added 2 links at the bottom of the Usage section, one to a more current Microsoft reference for 32 bit MASM, the other is a Microsoft document on the Portable Executable specifications.
I intended to work away on the page until it turns into a reasonable article and it does need a lot of work done to get it there. It has generally been hacked around by hicks who are not all that familiar with programming in MASM.
The reference material is almost purely manufacturers information. The Intel manuals are excellent reference material but are reasonably hard going if you are not used to the format. What I did with the Usage section was expand a number of aspects of the notations and capacity of the assembler to make the information readable. The Microsoft specific notation is contained in the reference material, both from online Microsoft data and from the original books and software supplied by Microsoft for MASM when it was still a seperate commercial product.
What concerns me with the citation process is the sheer clutter of citing assembler instructions and registers individually on a line by line basis as it would make the text unreadable which defeats the purpose of expanding the examples up to make them readable in the first place.
I would certainly be interested in any suggestions you have but there is another problem, the best reference material is my own masm forum <www.masm32.com> with years of posts from very experienced assembler programmers but that means I cannot post information from the forum as I am the webmaster.
With apologies I have just abandoned the Microsoft Macro Assembler page as it has been butchered by a guy who had an axe to grind over expanding the notation explanation. Thanks for your support, suggestions and assistance, I did my best in the time I had available but I am not going to waste my life and time arguing with people who are not technically competent in this area. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hutch48 (talk • contribs) 22:46, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is DexOS. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").
Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/DexOS. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.
Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 01:12, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
GA reassessment of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
I have conducted a reassessment of the above article as part of the GA Sweeps process. You are being notified as you have made a number of contributions to the article. I have found some concerns which you can see at Talk:Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute/GA1. I have placed the article on hold whilst these are fixed. Thanks.
