Possible typo[edit]

Hello there Bubba73,

I refer to your photo upload, which is part of the sundog page: I wonder if you meant "Georgia" in the caption, where instead it says: "Sun dog with the Sun, taken in Brunswick, Georiga, U.S."

I don't live in the US, so happy to stand corrected!

Cheerio, Sal.

Yes, a typo. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 01:21, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

On the science ref desk, they're asking about machetes being carried by the Apollo astronauts. It's possibly you could add something to it. P.S. RIP John Glenn. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 22:40, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Well, they were not hard to get. Most astronauts charge for their autographs, but Glynn didn't. You could send a photo to him and he would autograph it. I have five of them but only one is on my wall. The one on my wall was also signed by Günter Wendt. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 03:40, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
Double wow! Wendt was a hero in his own way too. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 03:49, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I always felt like you wanted Gunter Wendt in your corner. I remember in an interview that he told the families that he would make sure that everything on the pad was right. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 03:57, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

    • The copyright in the US has expired for everything published before 1923 and for everything published before 1978 without a copyright notice. These markers don't have copyright notices and they are from before 1978. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 16:37, 17 December 2016 (UTC)
The Georgia Open Records Act allows using them without restriction. The historical markers are done by yhe Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Historic Preservation Division. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 00:01, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Historical markers don't fit in any of those categories. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 00:58, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

  • This site has photos of historical markers that you can use for non-commercial purposes just by giving them credit for their photo. But the photos I uploaded are mine. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 01:07, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

    • I completely agree with Bubba73 on this issue I saw where markers were just deleted from an article. This do not fall under the copy right law in fact this items are government property created by the Georgia Historical Commission Reb1981 (talk) 03:34, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

chess endgame literature[edit]

Hi, In Fine's Basic Chess Endings, in the section on rook vs. bishop without pawns, there are quite a few credits to (Maestre, 1939). E.g., for #461 on page 461, fourth line from the bottom. This is the 1941 edition. I have not seen the revision by Benko, which I just learned about on the Chess_endgame_literature wikipedia page. The Chess_endgame_literature page does not list any works by Maestre. Fine's credits are not easy to correlate with his bibliography, given in the Introduction, p. xiv. I managed to run down (Horwitz and Kling, 1851) AKA (Kling and Horwitz, 1851) as referring to a book named Chess Studies in the Chess_endgame_literature page.

Averbakh, in Rook v. Minor Piece Endings, gives similar citations but has no bibliography at all (in the English translation, 1978, Batsford).

Is the some standard reference for looking up things like this, which is why everyone abbreviates?

I could not figure out who wrote what on this page. I see you have edited this page, but I am new on wikipedia and do not know how "Talk" works, so I will not put my email here, but you can figure it out if email is more suitable for responding. Any info is appreciated.

I do not remember hearing of Maestre and there is no Wikipedia article on him, and Amazon doesn't seem to list any books by him. They may have been published in magazines. Perhaps I've seen him credited, but I don't remember. I initially wrote all of chess endgame literature. For one, I have collected just about every endgame theory book written in English, well up to about 5 years ago. And then I used an encyclopedia with an article about chess endgame literatre as a framework. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 06:01, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

NRHP references[edit]

I'm glad you're developing NRHP articles in Georgia and elsewhere. Your edits at the Smith-Nelson Hotel article, for example, definitely improved it. It's a technical point though, that the fact of the NRHP listing and its date are not attributable to the NRHP nomination document. Sometimes/rarely the listing date does appear in a NRHP registration document, when it is being written up after the fact, but usually it is a nomination, beforehand (and sometimes the nomination does not go through). The NRIS database is good for it though. So usually there needs to be an NRIS reference for that fact, and I am editing the article accordingly. Perhaps you could revisit your other recent articles about this? Or anyhow pay attention to which material comes from NRIS vs. a nomination/registration document. By the way I am sure Georgia has climbed over the 30% quality level, will show when wp:NRHPprogress is updated. :) cheers, --doncram 09:19, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Sorry if i sound a bit tetchy, i was a bit irked by suggestion i hadn't attributed things properly here. Attribution matters a lot, i am careful about it, and it's a sore subject where i have been criticized unfairly before. --doncram 09:29, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Science ref desk[edit]

There is a question about moon walking. I've got one for you: Do you recall anyone ever falling down? Also, do you know about how heavy the full suit and gear were? ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 23:46, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Yes, there are several times when an astronaut fell down on the Moon. Apollo/Skylab A7L says that the whole thing with the backpack weighed 200 pounds. But they were in the Moon's 1/6 gravity. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 23:57, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
