I have unsubscribed to The Bugle. I appreciate the effort put into it, however I prefer that this talk page contain dialog and conversation rather than automated announcements. My listing was: CQ (talk · contribs) (American Civil War Taskforce; Interested in all things American Civil War especially operations around the confluences of the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee and Cumberland rivers and other Border state aspects). I also opted out for the WikiProject United States newsletter. Again, thanks for all the efforts. I welcome human comments, questions, thoughts... Charley • Q^#o • 13:30, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

CQ, CQ This is CQ Over,[edit]

First, please forgive me if I have messed up your formatting in some way. The workings of Wiki-Formatting is somewhat strange to me :P

And, long time no see bro!

This is Codename: Aetern, you might know me from a dynamic book called "secretus" wished to be kept classified at this time.

We are working on a project, and wanted to give you an exclusive inside look at a VERY rough draft of this confidential project in editorial review (think beta test).

We may be finished with the project before I am able to respond, so we'll make it apparent to you in some method or another. It is an exclusive documentary about a golden record on a space voyage. It is a transforming outlook on life, involving math, language, AI, possible alien communication with math, history and space exploration.

We would be honored if you accept our invite try this beta code: ljOrP-OU23g On youtube.

If you have difficulties reaching the information because it is classified, contact the channel operator, and we will assign need to know status for your user name.

When ready, feel free to try out the new "dynamic" beta test of a very large quest.

If you want in on the beta, we will deliver it for free, so that we can improve our "work". If you miss the beta, we will deliver the final product to you at no charge anyway, unless you do not want it.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Don Nix, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Going Down (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.

Thanks FloNight. I would love to attend, but alas, I have no transportation. If there's a channel open I shall try to tune in from way out here in Ballard County. • Q^#o • 17:49, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Sorrt that you can't attend. If there are other interested people close to you, we could plan a future nearby where you live. I don't mind to travel. Sydney Poore/FloNight♥♥♥♥ 20:17, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
That will be great, Flo! I'm toying around with organizing a "sustainability fair" in Paducah, Kentucky probably at The Coke Plant and/or the Park across the street. I'm pretty much a lone walker/wolf/ranger/star around here since I have no car and live out in the country. I can travel at the speed of light but only as my avatar ;). My non-profit is OzoneFarm .org and our v:Paducah2020 project is the work sheet if you wish to get involved. (I can't ethically conscript anyone, but I would be thrilled and encouraged if you drop a note here.) Thanks! • Q^#o • 18:24, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Solomon 666[edit]

Hi I saw one of your comments about Solomon 666 on the "Number of the beast" wiki page. Yes it is Solomon which leads back to the modern country of Israel. Israel is the 666. Jews dominate wiki so good luck getting it added to a wiki article.


Revelation 13

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is WISDOM. Let him that hath UNDERSTANDING count the number of the beast: for it is the NUMBER OF A MAN; and his number is Six hundred

threescore and six.

666 is mentioned 3 other times in the bible

Ezra 2:13

13 The children of Adonikam, six hundred sixty and six.

and

1 Kings 10:14

14 Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold,

and then the same thing again in 2 chronicles.

2 Chronicles 9:

13 Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and threescore and six talents of gold;

WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING of Solomon

1 Kings 3:12

12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a WISE and an UNDERSTANDING heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

1 Kings 4:29

God gave Solomon WISDOM and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore. 30 Solomon's

WISDOM was greater than the WISDOM of all the men of the East, and greater than all the WISDOM of Egypt. 31 He was WISER THAN ANY OTHER MAN,

including Ethan the Ezrahite--wiser than Heman, Calcol and Darda, the sons of Mahol. And his fame spread to all the surrounding nations. 32 He

spoke three thousand proverbs and his songs numbered a thousand and five. 33 He described plant life, from the cedar of Lebanon to the hyssop

that grows out of walls. He also taught about animals and birds, reptiles and fish. 34 Men of all nations came to listen to Solomon's WISDOM,

sent by all the kings of the world, who had heard of his WISDOM.

So king Solomon is the 666 from ~1000 BC, he ruled ancient Israel on the same land as modern Israel/Palestine. In Islamic and jewish kabbalah tradition took the hexagram symbol as his sign to cast spells and do witchcraft when he went apostate in 1 kings 11 so it became known as the seal of Solomon. So 1900 years since the book of Revelation was written a kingdom arises on the same land as ancient Israel with the star of Solomon on its flag so the modern state of Israel is the kingdom the 2nd beast in Revelation 13 will rule.

Sellingstuff (talk) 00:41, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

The really weird thing is that a whole other world is underneath the superficial world of buying, selling, owning and believing. Very little academic research has been done on this particular topic, so yeah.. it may be awhile before people get the full message of Christ Jesus. • Q^#o • 17:18, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

What's New in WikiProject Louisville? (Nov 2015)
Thank you for your continued membership in WikiProject Louisville! Our project is still alive and mildly kicking after over 9 years in operation. If by chance you're not up-to-date with what's going on in the project, here's some of the more recent goings-on:
  • We have over 6,100 articles included in the project and almost 17,000 pages (including talk pages) overall.
  • Our list of project tasks have been moved to a project subpage. This was done because the project's main page was getting rather long and perhaps difficult to digest. "One-stop shopping" for our project's tasks!
  • Our Membership department has been revamped. A lot of membership-related things have been clarified.
  • Did you know:

If you would like to opt out of receiving WikiProject Louisville newsletters, please add your name to the "Opt out of newsletters" list on our Active participants page.

Signpost exit poll[edit]

Dear Wikipedian, you recently voted in the ArbCom election. Your username, along with around 155 other usernames of your fellow Wikipedians, was randomly selected from the 2000+ Wikipedians who voted this year, with the help of one of the election-commissioners. If you are willing, could you please participate (at your option either on-wiki via userspace or off-wiki via email) in an exit poll, and answer some questions about how you decided amongst the ArbCom candidates?

  If you decide to participate in this exit poll, the statistical results will be published in the Signpost, an online newspaper with over 1000 Wikipedians among the readership. There are about twelve questions, which have alphanumerical answers; it should take you a few minutes to complete the exit poll questionnaire, and will help improve Wikipedia by giving future candidates information about what you think is important. This is only an unofficial survey, and will have no impact on your actual vote during this election, nor in any future election.

  All questions are individually optional, and this entire exit poll itself is also entirely optional, though if you choose not to participate, I would appreciate a brief reply indicating why you decided not to take part (see Question Zero). Thanks for being a Wikipedian

The questionnaire[edit]

Dear Wikipedian, please fill out these questions -- at your option via usertalk or via email, see Detailed Instructions at the end of the twelve questions -- by putting the appropriate answer in the blanks provided. If you decide not to answer a question (all questions are optional), please put the reason down: "undecided" / "private information" / "prefer not to answer" / "question is not well-posed" / "other: please specify". Although the Signpost cannot guarantee that complex answers can be processed for publication, it will help us improve future exit polls, if you give us comments about why you could not answer specific questions.

Once you have completed the usertalk-based exit poll answers, click here to notify the Signpost copy-editor, leave a short usertalk note, and click save. The point of leaving the usertalk note, is to make sure your answers are processed and published.

The point of leaving the usertalk note, is to make sure your answers are processed and published (not stuck in the spam-folder).

Processing of responses will be performed in batches of ten, prior to publication in the Signpost. GamerPro64 will be processing the email-based answers, and will strive to maintain the privacy of your answers (as well as your email address and the associated IP address typically found in the email-headers), though of course as a volunteer effort, we cannot legally guarantee that GamerPro64 will have a system free from computer virii, we cannot legally guarantee that GamerPro64 will resist hypothetical bribes offered by the KGB/NSA/MI6 to reveal your secrets, and we cannot legally guarantee that GamerPro64 will make no mistakes. If you choose to answer on-wiki, your answers will be visible to other Wikipedians. If you choose to answer via email, your answers will be sent unencrypted over the internet, and we will do our best to protect your privacy, but unencrypted email is inherently an improper mechanism for doing so.

User group for Military Historians[edit]

Greetings,

"Military history" is one of the most important subjects when speak of sum of all human knowledge. To support contributors interested in the area over various language Wikipedias, we intend to form a user group. It also provides a platform to share the best practices between military historians, and various military related projects on Wikipedias. An initial discussion was has been done between the coordinators and members of WikiProject Military History on English Wikipedia. Now this discussion has been taken to Meta-Wiki. Contributors intrested in the area of military history are requested to share their feedback and give suggestions at Talk:Discussion to incubate a user group for Wikipedia Military Historians.

Both Tonelli-Shanks and Cipolla's modular square root algorithms can handle powers of prime modula (not just primes)[edit]

I looked up Dickson's History of Numbers vol 1 p215(Tonelli) and p218(Cipolla) and Dickson clearly shows that both modular square root algorithms can handle powers of prime modula (whereas the Wiki articles say they can only do prime modula).

I've updated the TALK pages of both articles with the relevant Dickson math, along with numeric runthroughs with Mathematica code.

However, I am not a professional mathematician so I hesitate to update the articles.

Perhaps yourself, or someone else in the Computer science field could update the relevant articles with this information from Dickson.

The articles in question are:

Tonelli–Shanks algorithm
Cipolla's algorithm

April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.
