Hi Guy Harris.

NVRAM, NVMEM & NVDIMM[edit]

NetApp using non-volatile memory for NVLOGS in two forms: with low end systems as NVDIMMs (DIMM memory connected to memory bus directly) for example FAS2240, 2552, 2650, 2750. And as NVRAM in mid-range & high end systems (PCI card with memory on it obviously it is connected to PCI bus). For example FAS3220, 8040, 8200. NVRAM & NVDIMM are quite similar things and both used for NVLOGs in NetApp FAS Systems but yet a bit different entities: Starting with A800 NetApp decided to ditch NVRAM in it's systems and replaced it with NVDIMMs. No NVRAM will be used because PCI is more slow compare to memory bus and with All Flash FAS systems it become noticeable. Since old & new systems in past used NVDIMM & NVRAM it might confuse some people so it would be easier for readers to refer both of this technologies under single name.

@Qdrddr: The single name for the hardware is nonvolatile memory. The NVLOG (a software concept) is stored there. Guy Harris (talk) 22:09, 16 May 2018 (UTC) Ok. lets keep it nonvolatile memory — Preceding unsigned comment added by Qdrddr (talkcontribs) 01:26, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

re Windows Subsystem for Linux[edit]

Using {{cita web}} produces errors. {{citar web}} does not.--Auric talk 17:18, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

@Auric: Neither does using {{cite web}} if you fix the references to be in English.
And, as the documentation for {{citar web}} says, "The Template:Citar_web runs 20-25 per second, but users should translate to {{cite web}}, as time permits." It didn't take much time, so I just fixed them.
(The template documentation for {{citar web}} also says "The Template:Citar_web handles Portuguese-language (or Catalan) parameters for {{cite web}}", so if the parameters are in Spanish, that's the wrong template to use.) Guy Harris (talk) 17:23, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
Spanish and Catalan are related enough that {{citar web}} works. I was working to translate them, but I got a conflict when I tried to publish. I looked and saw that you had already done this. Thanks for helping!--Auric talk 17:30, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
