Synapse <-> Windows Media Connect[edit]

Would it be worth mentioning this little similarity? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zevensoft (talkcontribs) 13:59, 16 August 2006

No—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 02:36, 21 September 2006

I removed "but once open source" remark since it is not correct. Red Hat Linux is still open source and it will always be. Once open source, forever open source.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 22:44, 6 April 2007

IP Addresses of the satellites[edit]

Milo goes to the studio where his friend works.
There he want to broadcast the scene using Synapse.
But guess what! The IPs of the satellites are LOCAL AREA IPs, so he can't connect, even if nora or what's her name is hadn't put out the connector! [...]
So he can't connect to any satellite if he isn't in the LAN Network. --ToasterOS 08:11, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

I spotted this too but I think the principle may be ok here. Listening to the DVD commentary the producers took a great deal of advice on technical issues from experts in Silicon Valley. Given that they used the dish from the local TV station as an uplink I would guess that would put them on the same subnet as the satellites and therefore able to use the private IPs noted. Compare it with a webserver at a hosting company; the public connect via an internet IP and you manage it using a VPN to its private address.Jaseoldboss (talk) 11:34, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
Well, they have these things called "routers" that can do cool stuff like send packets to other networks. --Richardhkirkando 20:30, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Cleaning up and sourcing[edit]

I'm doing some work cleaning up and sourcing this article. Please forgive the ugly partial-cites. I'll do full, proper cites later. Right now, my focus is on keeping the good, verifiable information, citing it, and removing any OR and/or untrue information. Once I'm done, then I'll go back and clean up the display information for the cites -- unless someone wants to beat me to it, of course. spazure (contribs) (review) 09:28, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Startup is the name of the movie in german --ToasterOS 20:32, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

The truthfulness of the fact is not in question. The issue is verifiability through reliable sources. We have yet to find any reliable third-party sources that say "Startup is the title for Antitrust in other countries". I can confirm its factual accuracy through the fact that I own a copy of the DVD, and that if you look at reviews for Startup, you'll see a cast list and a movie poster that look similar to this movie. Nonetheless, the issue is verifiability, not truth. I'm not removing the information, of course, but it is important that we locate a source for the information. I may find the source in the next day or so, but while a source is not present, it is appropriate to have unverified information tagged as such. spazure (contribs) (review) 03:40, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

was redest du für einen dustbin? wir müssen nicht beweise dass der Film auf deutsch Startup heißt, er heißt einfach so schau einfach auf den deutschen wiki link und spam den artikel nicht mit quellen zu --Toaster —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:03, 31 August 2007 (UTC)


I rebuilt the article, as well as the {{film}} template on this page. I self-assessed as "B" status, as I feel it meets the criteria listed in the template. If anybody should feel otherwise, please feel free to bring it up here. Thanks. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 22:23, 26 February 2008 (UTC)


I found several free images of SFU available on Flickr, and uploaded what I thought were the best to Commons. I know the SFU article has similar images, but I didn't care for them in lieu of the image I chose. That being said, I've galleried below all the free images that could be used in this article for the purposes of illustrating SFU, and if anybody feels particularly strongly about changing it to something else, I'd just wanna know your opinion if you're so inclined. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 04:18, 28 February 2008 (UTC)



Photo accompanying allusions to Microsoft,of Tim Robbins is misleading. The picture shares no resemblance to Bill Gates, but in the film the similarities are quite obvious. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:30, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Well, the paragraph and source(s) don't refer to any physical similarities between Bill Gates and Tim Robbins, just the similarities between their persona or characters. The pictures are merely illustrative, and neither meant or captioned to infer physical similarities. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 22:29, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Open Source Trailer[edit]

Seriously? What's wrong with QuickTime? Isn't it available for free download? If I'm not mistaked, there are encoding tools out there that can be downdloaded freely to convert videos into QuickTime movies. | 6:19, 27 Frbruary 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

The QuickTime format is not an open format, as opposed to, say, Theora or other formats listed at Category:Free multimedia codecs, containers, and splitters. — pd_THOR | =/\= | 06:51, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
Sometimes a de-facto standard is the best you'll get (see H.264/MPEG-4 AVC). -- (talk) 02:23, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Citation style[edit]

Discuss these changes to repeated citations and Pd Thor's reversion of them. --Lexein (talk) 06:43, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

This is not Bill Gates[edit]

In 2006 it was written at this wiki that it was very hard to think this was not about Bill Gates. Why has that been deleted? I assume people like to think good things about the extremely rich. But harvest Wikipedia for example about Arfa Karim a child prodigy working herself to death just to not disappoint Mr Gates. It is sad that about Foxconn suicides are reported but about Microsoft and their programmers jumping from the Lincoln Town skyscraper are not. Usually the Microsoft suicidal wraps himself in sheets from a bed and puts his hands together with a rope at the back and then commit suicide by jumping wrapped off the skyscraper. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:53, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Lincoln Town Skyscraper[edit]

Usually suicides of programmers happens from public sites. Like the Lincoln Town Skyscraper. Make no mistake. When you google for these suicides in Seattle know that most of the times there is a relationship with Microsoft. At the time Gates and Ballmer where chief. (Not Sadya Nadella). I have only found 38 Microsoft programmers who commited suicide e.g. jumping in front of trains or jumping of buildings. Or hanging themselves. In all cases the formal investigations are pending. This is not hard to imagine. When a new Microsoft programmer gets his job there is a lot of security involved. Most new programmers even get special assisted police officers protecting them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:09, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
