Hello Safwan[edit]

  • Happy to see you here :) . KEMU page was the page that always came when i searched for RxPG. On seeing that RxPG doesnt have a wiki page, i made one. After that i always wondered, why do KEMU page come up in the list always when i search for RxPG? So just went through the article and found that there is a reference about RxPG in the article. So added an internal link to RxPG there. KEMU article is good, Did you make it? Binoj Mathew 22:15, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Re:

  • RxPG is registered in Australia & the Website founders are now in UK. And the RXPG team is spread in US,UK,India & Australia. So RxPG is truly spread all over the world and belong to every nation. I am thankful to RxPG to bring two people from 2 nations in conflict together as friends :) All the best pal. May all ur dreams come true.. Binoj Mathew 16:35, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Linux[edit]

Hi. Sorry it's taken so long to reply to your question.

> I have a question regarding Linux: Nobody gets paid to write code for the GNU and Linux, how practical is that?

There are two answers to this question, corresponding to the two sources that contributions to Free software come from.

The first answer is that a good part of GNU/Linux code is written by paid developers. Red Hat, for example, operate a Professional open-source business model; whereby they provide their own Linux distribution along with applications and management solutions, as well as support, training, and consulting services. Since their main product is their Linux distribution, it is in their interests to make it as good as possible. Now, Red Hat are a reasonable size comany, with something like a thousand employees; most of whom are probably programmers. So they improve the Linux kernel and the various GNU applications according to bug reports sent in, their customers needs, etc. But here is the main point: GNU applications and the Linux code are distributed under the GPL, which requires that any changes made to the code be released under the same terms as the original code. The improvements Red Hat make are contributed back into the main Linux kernel, where anyone can use them. Which means that any company selling Linux distributions not only gets the improvements they themselves make, they get all the improvements any company makes The end result is that all the companies win, since all their products are much, much better (and better able to compete with, say, Microsoft) then they would be if they had to develop everything all on their own.

The second answer is simpler: hobbyists. A lot of programmers enjoy tinkering around with the software they use, to get the features they want. For example, if a GNU paint program does not have, say, a spraypaint tool, but Joe Coder wants one, he can write one himself, and recompile the software. S/he gets the tool he wanted, but S/he also contributes that code back to the main program maintainer, so it can be permanently built into the program and everyone else can take advantage of it -- and maybe contribute their own patches and improve on it. Again, everyone wins.

> I figured this when i myself used Linux and found that it lacked the consistency that Windows provides

Consistency is always going to be a problem if you've got so many different people with different needs, but the situation is improving: for example, if you get a distribution that uses, say, the GNOME desktop environment, and only use programs designed to be used with GNOME (i.e. using the GtK toolkit), then the level of consistency is excellent.

I think the biggest gap at the moment between Linux and Windows/Mac isn't consistency (which, after all, isn't exactly steller on Windows and Mac OS -- Windows Media player and Quicktime, anyone?), but the X Window System; which is fine for basic setups, but a pain to configure for anything more complicated, such as dual monitor setups (something that Windows has been able to do with ease since Windows 98). But even this is getting better: the next release of Ubuntu, for example, includes a shiny new configuration utility for X Windows.

Will Linux ever be as good as, say, Mac OS is now? Yes, undoubtedly. But will it keep up with the commercial software's development pace? Only time will tell.

Copyright problem removed: Wound dehiscence[edit]

Hello. I'm afraid that content you placed in this article seems to have duplicated one or more previously published sources. The material looks like it was copied from [1] and the subsequent pages in that series. Their publication predates our use, since it was posted on that website at October 30, 2010 and not placed on Wikipedia until 21 November 2010. I realize that it is possible that you were the author of the content in the blog. Even if you were, or if you have permission from the author, however, there are complications, as some of the material used in that block was previously published in a copyrighted journal.

Take, for example, this text published at page 2 of the series:

Appearance of a pink, watery discharge through the wound a week or so after operation. This is blood-tinged peritoneal exudate escaping through the deeper layers of the wound, and its appearance is strong evidence of imminent complete dehiscence. Recognition of the significance of this discharge should make it possible to resuture the abdominal wound before the frightening and potentially dangerous complication of complete rupture is allowed to occur.

This was previously published in the British Medical Journal in 1966 [2]:

An important diagnostic pointer which should be taught to the nursing and house staff is the appearance of a pink, watery discharge through the wound a week or so after operation. This is blood-tinged peritoneal exudate escaping through the deeper layers of the wound, and its appearance is strong evidence of imminent complete dehiscence. Recognition of the significance of this discharge should make it possible to resuture the abdominal wound before the frightening and potentially dangerous complication of complete rupture is allowed to occur.

Other content was closely paraphrased from a 1982 report in the same copyrighted journal. For example:

Drains are inserted through a separate stab away from the incision and a colostomy or ileostomy is always fashioned through a separate incision

The 1982 report says:

Drains, when used, are inserted through a stab wound away from the incision, and a colostomy or ileostomy, when performed, is always fashioned through a separate incision.

I do not know how much more content may have been copied or minimally altered from that journal source.

The article has been returned to an earlier state. We cannot use the material from this blog unless it is duly released under a compatible license (it is currently licensed for non-commercial use only) and we can verify that it does not itself contain unlicensed content. (For more information, please see "using copyrighted works from others" if you are not the copyright holder of this material, or "donating copyrighted materials" if you are.)

For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or published material unless we do verify permission; such additions will be deleted. It is legal under the US copyright law that governs Wikipedia to take facts from sources, but not language. For that reason, contributors may use copyrighted publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences or phrases. Accordingly, the material may be rewritten, but only if it does not infringe on the copyright of the originals or plagiarize from those sources. Please see our guideline on non-free text for how to properly implement limited quotations of copyrighted text.

Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with these policies. Thank you, and please feel free to let me know at my talk page if I can clarify any of these concerns or the processes for dealing with them. Moonriddengirl (talk) 16:23, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited King Edward Medical University, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Rehabilitation (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Computer simulation. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you. Old Moonraker (talk) 12:52, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:KEMU1.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:KEMU1.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:27, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

September 2016[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Fellow of College of Physicians and Surgeons Pakistan a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you.
