Core 2 Duo[edit]

Your first reference for Merom being out was the page for the announcement of the Core 2 brand, not for the Core 2 processors themselves. (Note that it speaks of Core 2 in the future tense - "When launched later this year, the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor will provide enhanced performance and energy-efficiency in mobile applications while bringing for the first time the benefits of energy-efficient performance to mainstream desktop computing.")

The Core 2 Duo specifications page lists only the E series, not the T series. Perhaps Intel has officially released Merom, and they haven't updated their Web site yet, but if nothing shows up there in the next few days, that would appear to suggest that they haven't announced Merom yet. Guy Harris 18:26, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Note also that the Intel desktop processor roadmap page lists Core 2 (and the server roadmap and workstation roadmap pages list the Core Microarchitecture Xeon 5100 series), but their laptop roadmap page doesn't. Guy Harris 18:43, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

However, Intel's press release about the announcement speaks of the T series. I've no idea why the main Core 2 pages don't mention them. Guy Harris 00:21, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

RAID Diagrams[edit]

Hi Alex,

Firstly I'd like to thank you for the diagrams you created for the RAID article - they really help get the point across and in this case the pictures (to me) say more than a thousand words. However, in that same article there are still (or again.. not sure) ASCII diagrams, which are much harder to interpret. I've considered following your footsteps and make images for those as well, so as to keep the article consistent. However, such images would probably not match the style of your images exactly.

Would it be possible for you to either create images for those other ASCII-diagrams as well, make public the method you used to create the diagrams or release the source files for the diagrams (Visio files or something like that?).. I'm sure the many wikipedians working on the article would appreciate it.

Kind regards,

Ascii art?[edit]

I see you do some work on fixing ascii art? Check out the page on ladder logic. Not that it's really worth updating... --ninjayeti

Re: Please do not destroy old conversations[edit]

Thanks for the hints but I already know about such methods, however so far there hasn't been anything worth keeping "long term" on my talk page using the methods you suggest. Certainly the recent comments by a certain user are more like stalking so that's why I removed them, the user was subsequently 3RR blocked. The history of the page is a good enough archive so far. At this point I will point you towards this diff and discussion [1] Fnagaton 09:38, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

One man's rubbish is another man's treasure. ;) I prefer to keep my talk page clean and tidy. Fnagaton 10:15, 9 May 2007 (UTC)


Sorry about that re-appearing template. My fault. Tony 07:02, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

No need to apologize. The page has just been very.... active... lately, and such things will happen. Hopefully everyone will be a bit more careful going forward. And hopefully you won't have need to keep reverting so many things. — Aluvus t/c 08:48, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

good catch![edit]

Thanks for fixing my mis-revert on motherboard. The vandals there are starting to get to me it seems :-) ǝɹʎℲxoɯ (contrib) 20:48, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

October 2007[edit]

Information.svg Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to Motherboard: You may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit was inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. richi 13:51, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

RE: Probable mistake[edit]

You probably have my talk page on your watchlist, but just in case, I'll point out my reply. Cheers! Tuvok[T@lk/Improve me] 06:56, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Once again. :) Now I'm off to sleep; no more replies 'til tomorrow, I swear. Tuvok[T@lk/Improve me] 07:50, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Talk:MOSNUM: {{delimitnum}} template[edit]

I just wanted to make you aware that I made a post here on Talk:MOSNUM regarding the new {{delimitnum}} template. See you there. Greg L (my talk) 22:14, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

About mode of execution trace cache[edit]

If you remove my link again, I am reporting you to an admin, and I am not joking. You don't even understand how the L1 Trace works, many of Wikipedia are allowed to have external links, historic data. See Instructions per second for example and citation and some of them even have terms.

Plus you don't even understand how the modes of execution trace caches works, they are cahces able programmable by assembly / macros code, the links provide the types of mode that can be supported depending on the content of macros code. Also associtivity is directly related to execution trace caceh, it is the mechanism of using TLB & decoder to descript the code into readable machine code thus storing it into the execution trace caches, without this process execution trace caches is useless, I don't need to provide citation because I am not writing only to show what this topic is about, which you are not understanding, I am not currently planning on writing this into anything major / minor in the Netburst (microarchitecture) article. --Ramu50 (talk) 23:27, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

I am not sure how you have determined what I do or do not know about anything. The link that you are attempting to insert into NetBurst is a general article about cache associativity. It makes no mention of, and has nothing specifically to do with, trace cache. It has to do with processor cache in general, much like the article CPU cache (which already includes a section on associativity). The point of external links is to provide relevant information that is not suitable (for whatever reason) for inclusion into a Wikipedia article. The information covered in the link you have attempted to insert is already contained in the appropriate Wikipedia article. There is no compelling reason to include the external link in NetBurst. I removed your link for this reason, not as some general protest against external links.
Making threats about "reporting someone to an admin" is neither productive nor wise; it comes across as bullying, and assuming that you were to make such a report, little would come of it. You would have a hard time finding an admin that would admonish me for following Wikipedia:External links and providing detailed explanations for my actions. — Aluvus t/c 01:53, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

First you remove it without any legitimate reasoning therefore it is consider a form of vandalism. I was placing link to express a similar intention as See Also, which usually connotate the purpose of letting others learn topics that are relevant. The purpose of the execution trace cache link was to allow further understanding of trace cache. Because, currently in Wikipedia nobody has proven there wasn't any evidence that states Netburst architecture had the same or different design architecture of execution trace cache, I felt people should have the options of choosing to learn that info or not without the need of learning the entire CPU cache. (Because not everybody may have interest in such as a broad topic that deals with all types of CPU caches.)

Simply saying it is irrelevant without any explanation or legitmate reasoning in the edit summary of article's history is not accepted. I am only reminding you not to do it again, not as a threat. If it was a threat I wouldn't have use that vague tone of voice of writing. --Ramu50 (talk) 20:15, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

LGA 775[edit]

Discussion you stated earlier state the move from Socket 775 to LGA775 not LGA 755. Also my attempt to move the page using the move feature earlier ended in an error. Illegal Operation (talk)

xeon die size[edit]

Thanks for that cite. Of course my math was wrong (missed a decimal place) so it's about 22mm on a side, not 70mm. That is still really enormous, though not unbelievable. A die photo would be way cool. (talk) 00:36, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Intel has provided a large (5 MB) die shot here: t/c 02:15, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Link color CSS script for Vector[edit]

Hi Aluvus. Nearly three years ago, you gave very useful advice at [2] on how to change link colors using one's stylesheet. Very soon, Wikipedia will be switching its default skin from Monobook to Vector, and the linking color fix does not work for the latter. Do you know how to fix it? Thanks, Dabomb87 (talk) 00:38, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

I would expect a variant of the same method to work, but proper testing requires me to switch to the beta skin. I'm a little concerned that switching back (in the fairly likely event it breaks something in Opera) will not be easy; do you happen to know? — Aluvus t/c 03:56, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
Vector has now become the default skin. Switching back to monobook (or whatever skin you previously used) is not hard at all; just click on "take me back" at the top of your screen. Dabomb87 (talk) 00:06, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
As I had hoped, the same method works if you simply substitute vector for monobook in the URL. So for instance, my own user CSS for Vector is at User:Aluvus/vector.css. — Aluvus t/c 06:17, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Alright, thank you! Dabomb87 (talk) 13:16, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

cpu cache - cache entry structure[edit]

I added this discussion section for a proposed changed to cache entry structure:


Jeffareid (talk) 10:10, 22 April 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for your recent revert in Talk:X86 virtualization‎ (rv; WP:OR does not generally apply to Talk). Dumb mistake on my part; I checked the history of the talk page and thought I was checking the history of the main page. (Note to self; next time, smoke crack after editing Wikipedia...) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Guymacon (talkcontribs) 03:04, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

December 2010[edit]

Please do not attack other editors, as you did at Talk:List of Microsoft codenames. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you. Fleet Command (talk) 12:44, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Avoid personal attacks[edit]

All right, Aluvus, read carefully because I won't repeat myself. Calling other people "insane" is a direct violation of Civility pillar of Wikipedia. We remove such comments on sight. Yet, not only you made such a comment, but I deleted it, you re-added it and called me "rude".

I'm deleting it again, but if you call me "insane" or use another insult, I'll report you to noticeboard. Fleet Command (talk) 20:22, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure who the "we" are that "remove such comments on sight", as WP:NPA notes that this is a disputed practice and WP:CIV specifically recommends discussion rather than deletion, stating "it may be appropriate to discuss the offending words with that editor" and "It is not normally appropriate to edit or remove another editor's comment.". In short, your own deletion was in contradiction to WP:CIV.
Regardless, now that you have identified the passage that you object to (rather than deleting the entire comment whole-cloth with minimal explanation), I have edited the text. I regret the original phrasing.
As a further note, threatening to report people to the noticeboard (or any similar threat) is basically never an effective method of conflict resolution. Particularly for what is, in the scheme of things, a quite minor conflict. — Aluvus t/c 00:29, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for removing the offending phrase. That's very kind of you. And please consider using {{talkback}} template next time. Fleet Command (talk) 04:48, 22 December 2010 (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.
