A new Oxbridge user box[edit]

Alksentrs...I am currently in the process of writing a user box for all of the colleges that are part of Oxbridge. This template is meant to replace your current college template. Please take a look at the work in progress and comment on it. My main concerns are college abbreviations and color choice. I am using scarf colors for the colleges. Thank you. - LA @ 18:10, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]


As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

C operators[edit]

The added links are okay, but in case you weren't aware of it, % is a remainder operator, not strictly a modulo operator. (There is a distinction for negative arguments.) Just FYI. — DAGwyn (talk) 10:51, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Vector space[edit]

Thanks for your note, I am loking into this. Rich Farmbrough, 14:03 3 February 2009 (UTC).

Loop invariants[edit]

What was it? It seemed so obviously wrong to me? Am I the idiot or was it wrong?

SimonTrew (talk) 01:36, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Your changes weren't wrong (I think). It just wasn't a very good example. (In fact, it was a really weird example, and I've been meaning to replace it for a while. Your edit just reminded me.) Alksentrs (talk) 01:46, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
It'sOK as you can imagine a particular sentence was put there, not maliciously, but with the intention to get it fixed. Which it has been though not entirely to my satisfaction. I have been editing the obfuscated code article that took me two hours to do two lines of code. And I have spent three days finding a bug in Intel's compiler. These examples kinda seem like written by academics who have never actually written any real code. I am not saying that is true, just saying it seems like that.

Proposed deletion of C str (C++)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article C str (C++), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Non-notable member function of a class template. Substantial content has been merged into String (C++).

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. decltype (talk) 03:40, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Mathematical symbol[edit]


I have seen, that you made a list of missing mathematical symbols here. And I thought, that I ask for your opinion about the join operator. I really think that it should be mentioned in the table, or be listed under the missing symbols... Flinx (talk) 12:02, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

I've added natural join (⋈), semijoin (⋉) and antijoin (▻) to the table. Alksentrs (talk) 14:25, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

triple product > another notation[edit]

I've made an attempt to answer your question.--Q0k (talk) 22:29, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

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.
