Thanks for the message[edit]

Just read your message on my talk page - thanks! Especially for the metadata info - I began the portal, but have been neglecting it. Here's hoping that you'll be using your knowledge of all things French to improve it and all other French-oriented articles: traffic there is lacking it seems!

Take care, and thanks again,

Temporary Notes to me[edit]


The flow of heat from one region to another is called a heat current.

Conduction carries heat through solids, gels, or still liquids by the collision of molecules. In insulators, the heat current is carried almost entirely by phonon vibrations.

The Peltier-Seebeck effect exhibits the propensity of electrons to conduct heat through an electrically conductive solid. Thermoelectricity is caused by the relationship between electrons, heat currents and electrical currents.

Buoyant convection is due to the effects of gravity, and mostly absent in microgravity environments. In truly gravitation-less environments, buoyancy-induced convection as we know it is absent, although volume-changes - however slight - still cause minor convection movement. This effect would be more pronounced for fluids whose volumetric-expansion coefficient is greater.

Radiation carries heat through the emission and absorption of photons (electromagnetic radiation).

For room temperature objects (in the neighborhood of 300 K), the majority of photons emitted (and involved in radiative heat transfer) are in the infrared spectrum, but this is by no means the only frequency range involved in radiation. The frequencies emitted are partially related to black-body radiation. Hotter objects (a campfire is around 700 K, for instance), transfer heat in the visible spectrum or beyond. Whenever EM radiation is emitted and then absorbed, heat is transferred. This principle is used in microwave ovens, laser cutting, and RF hair removal.

Conduction, the most common means of heat transfer in solids, is the transfer of heat through atoms and molecules that are in direct contact with one another, when there is a temperature gradient between them. Materials with high thermal conductivity, such as metals, transfer nearly all of the heat via electrons, whereas materials with low thermal conductivity – insulators – transfer nearly all of the heat via phonons.

Radiative heat transfer is the transfer of heat via photons (electromagnetic radiation). Movements of atoms and molecules cause the emission of photons into the surroundings constantly, carrying away some of the heat. Atoms and molecules are also constantly absorbing photons from other atoms and molecules. Since hotter materials emit more radiation than cooler materials, a net transfer of heat occurs from the hotter materials to the cooler materials. For room temperature objects, the majority of photons emitted are in the infrared spectrum. Hotter objects transfer heat through emission of photons in the visible spectrum or beyond

Wikipedia's LGBT Community[edit]

Gay flag.svg

Hi, Ame Errante!
You've indicated through various means (a userbox, membership in a category, etc) that you are part of the Wikipedia LGBT community, or are interested in Wikipedia's LGBT related pages. Welcome!

You may not know that Wikipedia has both an LGBT Notice Board and an LGBT Studies WikiProject. If you haven't yet done so, take a look at both of them. They sorely need attention and participation!

Some things on the "To-Do List" that merit particular attention include:

  1. Identifying topics/pages that need attention
  2. Identifying problems that need addressing
  1. Adding the LGBT template to appropriate pages
  2. Categorizing LGBT pages

Please feel free to participate in any or all of these activities! And if you feel like it, add yourself to either the Noticeboard Members or the WikiProject Participants - or both!

Glad you're a part of Wikipedia - and Thanks! This invitation posted here by SatyrTN -- talk
Please remove it if you so desire.

Mechanical Engineering Article[edit]

One thing that I initially noticed was the bolding of terms in the article. I have not seen this used in other articles and was planning on unbolding the terms and linking where appropriate. The bolding also makes the article difficult to read as non-key terms are given importance. Also I feel that the current subdiscipline section coudl be better described as curriculum or coursework. The term subdiscipline lends me to believe that one may assume that an engineer could make a profession by knowing only one of these rather than the braod understanding that is actuallly necesarry. Do you feel that these woudl be constructive changes? I'll try to research a little into the history of Mechanical Engineering and update. Jeb8828 14:34, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

I was thinking that the "Tools of the engineer" section would lead more towards CAD programs, analysis programs, maybe a description of Mohr's circle to link the picture into the article. As for my previous comment about the subdiscipline distinction I would say that they do not belong in the Tools section. Since many of the "subdisciplines" are mentioned in the coursework section I still think it would be better to expand and discuss them there rather than the present layout. I would suggest merging this section but leaving the ending list of specialized subdisciplines as this still has value. Maybe add a line or two for each specialized subdiscipline for a brief description? Jeb8828 16:16, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

what is that picture on your user page?[edit]

is it your head from a bird's eye view?

  • Yes it is, actually. I am really not sure when the picture is from, but it was made with an inexpensive webcam in a poorly lit room. The only reason I use it here is that it puts a face to my account without giving away too much of my identity (I at least like to keep the illusion of anonymity). -Âme Errante 14:28, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Yo-Yo Ma[edit]

You changed Yo-Yo Ma INCORRECTLY, in an attempt to cut down on excess links. dont worry, i changed it back, without adding any links. pls dont change it again, the article is very accurate now.

Input request[edit]

Hi Ame Errante, there is some discussion currently going on here, and I noticed you have {{User anime}} on your userpage. If you are not too busy, I would appreciate it if you could drop some of your ideas on how to reform the portal on the aforementioned talk page. Thanks! « ANIMUM » 23:14, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Wolf's Rain GA[edit]

Hello. I left some questions/comments in response to your note that the GA is on hold. Collectonian (talk) 00:02, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry to ping again, but have you had a chance to take another look at this? dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) 08:38, 22 May 2008 (UTC)


Hi Brandon, I'll be happy to review Mechanical engineering. I have some relevant experience, but I'd like to ask for a little bit of patience, I want to finish my work on style guidelines first, and I don't know how much of a time-sink the my review on Cold Fusion is going to turn out to be. - Dan Dank55 (talk)(mistakes) 18:46, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Well, I'm finally done with the review. It's on hold awaiting improvements. I'm letting you and Fnlayson know, in case you'd like to do more. - Dan Dank55 (talk)(mistakes) 22:41, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
