For leaving courteous comments when editing others' work

Awarded by all those who appreciate that sort of thing, 15th November 2005 [1]

I'm a curious person and Wikipedia is an excellent way to learn random interesting things. It is when I am doing that that I see minor problems with articles and fix them. —me in 2006 (it's still pretty accurate.)

I think I started editing Wikipedia in 2003; I officially signed up in 2005, so my history since then is recorded (except a few times when I forgot to log in).

Various notes to self:

I think I did a fairly good job with pooled standard deviation which I hadn't heard of before today, and finding sources for p-rep...

alloca needs an article. malloc refers to it in a footnote, and should have an internal link... I did a bit of (re)searching, I should put what links I found... (alloca() is an important function in the C programming language and possibly related languages).

Public domain I, the author, hereby agree to waive all claim of copyright (economic and moral) in all content contributed by me, the user, and immediately place any and all contributions by me into the public domain, unless otherwise noted.
I grant anyone the right to use my work for any purpose, without any conditions, to be changed or destroyed in any manner whatsoever without any attribution or notification.

By "contributions" and "my work" I take this anti-license to mean my edits to the main Wikipedia namespace, and perhaps similar places if they seem similar in intent.

(Why public-domain? Well, I don't like license incompatibility problems, and my contributions aren't so extensive or self-contained that it seems even potentially worth the complications. Few if any of them are even large enough to qualify as copyrightable in a court of law, anyway, I think, so, better to explicitly assure people that I won't bother them.)


References and citations are helpful for a surprisingly large variety of reasons for a variety of people...
