Needing your help, please![edit]

I saw your name amongst those proposed changes in the Comparisons of Bittorrent Clients wiki page, thought you may be of help.

I wanted to add the function "Sequential Downloading" to the comparison points but despite the fact this is the second mostly wished function to be supported in Bittorrent clients, that is to download a torrent file of a media file, like music, or video and be able to start using it right away.

Hardly none of the client applications support this function. By the official reasoning because it would slow or kill the downloading swarm while truth is it is working. If you go deep enough to see how the system works, you'll find there's nothing about Sequential Downloading that would make any harm to the swarm. In turn, many streaming sites that makes millions of dollars for providing HD videos, for example, would die out starving as no the fuck one would pay for their shit. So this chip of information, that is we already have 1, I say again, only one client that supports downloading your torrent file of a movie and start watching it, is a war field of business. I want you to help this information stay on the wiki site loud and clear.

The function I mentioned in the first place that is mostly wished is chat function. Well, that is not strictly related to Bittorrent clients although this function is a humongous leap. Best quality, right away, for no cash. This is a big difference. But people doesn't really know it was even possible so this is the least one can do to say it out clear on an independent site as wikipedia that it exists. We needed to mention if a client had the function to chat which is, let's say, not really a relevant function in means of data sharing but we did. So how could that happen that we don't share this information if there's sooooo big need for that. Please, help protect this information on this wiki page that this function already exists and available for everyone.

Thank you!

TeleGrafix Communications[edit]

I'm thinking about merging/deleting TeleGrafix Communications. From what I can tell, and remember, the company was basically equivalent to the product, and there doesn't seem to be enough material for two articles. Did the company do anything else notable?

OK I merged and started sprucing it up a bit. See if there's anything there want to riff off of. Maury Markowitz (talk) 20:01, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

The LA Wikipedia community has three events in mid-February -- please consider attending!

First, we have a Valentine's Day edit-a-thon appropriately named Redondo Loves Wikipedia, which will take place at the Redondo Beach Public Library from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, February 14. Join library staff, the Redondo Beach Historical Society, and others to help improve Wikipedia's coverage of Redondo Beach!

Second, we have a Wik-Ed Women editing session on Tuesday, February 17 from 6pm to 10pm at the Los Angeles Contemporary Archive downtown. This series of informal get-togethers is designed to encourage Los Angeles women-in-the-arts (though all are welcome!) to contribute their expertise to Wikipedia, specifically expanding content about women artists.

Third, we have an Unforgetting LA event put on by East of Borneo in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute. Come help improve Wikipedia's coverage of LA design and architecture, and have an awesome free day at the museum -- parking will be validated for edit-a-thon participants! If you'd like to use particular books from GRI's great collection, be sure to email before 2/13 (instructions at event page).

And be sure to check out our main meetup page, because we already have three SoCal events scheduled for early March!

I hope to see you there! Calliopejen1 (talk) - via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:58, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
