batfiles[edit]

The link to the batfiles at [ http://purl.oclc.org/net/Batfiles/ ] appears to be dead.

I found a link to a mirror at [ http://www.angelfire.com/blues/batfiles/indexus.htm ], but some of the links give me an error. Can anyone find a better mirror? --Guy Macon (talk) 02:38, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

This is the last archived version I could find:

Warning: large number of changes accidentally reverted![edit]

This edit seems to have restored a very old version of the article. Since then, many editors and bots have updated the result to fix some individual issues created, plus a few normal edits were done on top of that. This all means we cannot easily revert the rollback. As I have time, I will start fixing this, a couple paragraphs at a time, but I hope someone else can come up with a quicker solution. --A D Monroe III (talk) 19:37, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

A D Monroe III, How is my edit? This restored the content prior to the unhelpful reversion and new changes made by G.Reza Yahyavi Fakour. This also took out the section on 'compatability" that you removed here: [1]. I didn't have a suitable talk page message to place on the editors talk page to explain undoing all their changes, so I have pinged them. (If mine is not how you wanted it, feel free to tinker at will). All the best, Fylbecatulous talk 10:17, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
And now that I am looking at their contributions, I see their user page has been deleted: 21:59, 2015 June 13 RHaworth (talk | contribs) deleted page User:G.Reza Yahyavi Fakour (U5: Blatant misuse of Wikipedia as a web host), so I feel you are in good shape to carry on from here.

This appears to be an Iranian hobbyist who claims to have created two operating systems and has very limited English skills. See [ https://tools.wmflabs.org/guc/?user=G.Reza+Yahyavi+Fakour ] and [ https://fa.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=%D8%AF%D8%A7%D8%B3_%28%D8%B3%DB%8C%D8%B3%D8%AA%D9%85%E2%80%8C%D8%B9%D8%A7%D9%85%D9%84%29&action=history ], where (big surprise) he deleted large chunks of the DOS page on the Persian Wikipedia and got reverted. --Guy Macon (talk) 13:15, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Fylbecatulous; I agree your revert of everything starting with the disruption is the best way to straighten this out. I was reluctant to do this because it loses other edits, but now that I've had time to review them, it seems the other edits were basically all trying to fix various bits the massive disruption anyway. Your pinging the other editors should catch anything we missed. Thanks! --A D Monroe III (talk) 15:07, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
That is what I thought as well. I carefully reviewed the history and there was no new content added in the interim. Everything that was done was an attempt to make repairs. So going back to the last available good historical version and with this questionable editor hopefully out of the picture, I wish you happy editing. Fylbecatulous talk 15:23, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on DOS. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
