You have nothing to apologize for[edit]

Don't worry. It's always a pleasure piping down the valleys wild in your company - I know I'll always learn something about American art if I follow in your wake. We need a hundred more of your sort in these precincts to maximize our potential. Here's to many more adventures in 2017 - happy editing, and keep up the good work! --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:47, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Ohhh, that one hurts.
By the by, I meant to mention to you: Auriel Bessemer got [a mention] in the local paper the other day. Apparently he was male - when you created the article you said he was female, and I concurred when editing. I'm wondering what the source for that is now...it appears to be one of your books which I can't check. Just wondering about the source of the discrepancy... --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 09:35, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
Ahhhhhh, OK. No worries - I made the same assumption myself when I first saw the name. Just wondering if someone had said the wrong thing somewhere, and if we'd need to chase it down and beat it with a stick. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 18:34, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Back to Gettysburg[edit]

The National Park Service changed the URL for nearly every one of its battlefield monument pages. So I went thru all 1,162 pages, and fixed the links to the Wiki monument list. I was planning to stop at 300 for today, but it turns out about half of the NPS pages are for buildings & structures or informational placards, not monuments. Interesting, to revisit the list a couple years after. And watching the news would only raise my blood pressure. Hope you're well. Best, == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 03:43, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Those swine! probably something that needed to be done to their way of thinking and since the NPS is probably about to lose 9 tenths of its funding on Monday they probably decided to do it now. You on the other hand have no funding so are once again going beyond the call of duty. I am better in that i did get a new (2008) car. The good news is that I did locate a car driven by a little old lady since 2008, under 50,000 miles on it, with all new belts (including timing) hoses, tires, wipers, the works, so I am happy about that. After taking Gabe to the dog park on a rainy day I managed to mess the car up in one day more than she did in 8 years, but this is no surprise to those who know me. I am also going to try and get to the March in downtown Phoenix on Saturday, see if I still have what it takes to take to the streets. That should be, hopefully, uneventful. Et tu?
I would normally watch an inauguration, no matter what. But I was surprised at how much anger I felt watching only a bit of last night's ceremonies. I think the TV will remain off for the day.
NPS seems to have been revising the Gettysburg part of its website over the past couple years. Unless I made mistakes, the links should now all work.
Sounds like you got a creampuff. Congrats. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 14:47, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
I think leaving the TV off is going to be a trend today. Keep the ratings down. Carptrash (talk) 16:10, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the disambiguiating definition of "carp"! Webavant (talk) 05:32, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the history![edit]

Thanks for posting the very interesting history of your wiki-name on my talk page. Fascinating to learn where the carp comes from, and that it has nothing to do with fish! And yes, the website you referred to is still there, I checked it out. All the best ABF99 (talk) 15:50, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

Evergreen Cemetery gatehouse[edit]

Okay. I need to be less wishy-washy. Thanks. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 19:36, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

I have never found your approach to things to be ineffective. Or "wishy-washy."Carptrash (talk) 19:41, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, but on this I wimped out. Do I see a List of Cemetery Gatehouses in the United States coming in the future? == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 19:44, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
The future's not ours to see, que sera sera. Carptrash (talk) 20:17, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
In 7th grade, that song made my Spanish teacher crazy. She'd insist that it should be "Lo que sera, sera." == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 20:42, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

I'd intended to get to HSP today, or to the art bookstore in NJ, but I got sucked into Gettysburg National Cemetery. I noticed that you were one of the article's early editors, back in 2005. How did it get to be February? == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 19:07, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

More or less the same way it got to be not 2005. I was a pioneer in sculpture on wikipedia, you can find me early in a lot of articles. It's one of my vanity spots. Oh vanity, vanity, thy name is wikipedia editor. Carptrash (talk) 20:15, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
Vanity? perhaps. But the rest of us benefit. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 20:48, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
Well doing it is not vanity, bragging about it is. Only I gain from that. Still have not found my Ulysses Ricci slides. I wonder if I posted enough here?Carptrash (talk) 21:48, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Quit it[edit]

Stop deleting Tom Perez endorsements. Put endorsements on other candidates if you want. Nothing is stopping you at all. By all means go for it. Nobody else has a problem but you 2602:304:B226:54F9:4C7:AFE4:63C0:494B (talk) 00:36, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

If you were an editor who had edited at any article beyond Tom Perez I might be inclined to be more tolerant, but this is just BS, wikipedia is not part of his campaign literature. Or should' be. Carptrash (talk) 19:06, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
Hi I happened by this and agree with you. Also note that this ip6 user is deleting the comments of other editors from Tom Perez' talk page that he does not like. All of the potential candidates have their endorsements listed at Democratic National Committee chairmanship election, 2017#Endorsements in a nice collapsed list anyways.
