TUSC token 9971e50bd95eab9f57319ec9a0d97086
I am now proud owner of a TUSC account where I changed my password!
Here's another (active during October 2014):
This has more of the usual MO, including another fake taxobox on Talk:Syphorman, which needs a speedy deletion. There is other stuff I need to check, which seems to have slipped under the radar. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 23:35, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
I've added another 'speedy deletion tag (db-g3) to Gabon macrofossils - this page has had a few GF edits by other naive users taken in by the hoax.
- Rather than a speedy deletion, I've reverted this page back to the last good version, which was a simple redirect page. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 01:30, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
- I have implemented a six month range block covering the affected (infected?) portion of Frontier's Rochester, New York IP space. Nice work finding those! —EncMstr (talk) 02:13, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
- These Talk pages have now been deleted by User:Metropolitan90. The IP vandal has used the full name "Edward Jonathan Ostroski" in these now-deleted pages, and on googling the name I came across several more instances of WP Talk-page articles created during 2014. These have now been deleted on WP, but still exist on a WP-clone and include Talk:Pilybarea, Talk:Cerialaptecharteus, Talk:Atmospheric squid and Talk:Sword (nobyrbiacules). As the WP originals have now been deleted, I don't know if it's still possible to see the page histories and so trace any more spurious edits from those IP addresses which may still be live.

- Alas, I am slow to react. I was away on an Internet-free holiday.
- Admins can see deleted revisions. It looks like you (or someone) got them all. I have set up some more blocks:
- These pages which he created were deleted: Talk:Bloodless howler, Talk:Anatogryllscinc necronomius, Talk:Sword (nobyrbiacules), Talk:Ululanodua, Talk:Gorylaeosaurus, Talk:United Flying Object Of Alien, Talk:DickSwim
- These pages were vandalized (and reverted): COROT-7b and PSR B1257+12 B
- Thanks! —EncMstr (talk) 22:17, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Haha, you caught me.
The following paper (https://www.academia.edu/12046032/A_Survey_of_Techniques_for_Modeling_and_Improving_Reliability_of_Computing_Systems) presents an excellent survey (~115 papers reviewed) of techniques for improving resiliency and modeling and mitigating soft-errors. It is accepted in IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems (impact factor 2.17). Can we add a reference to this on wikipedia pages on Soft_error and Fault_tolerance?

- @Newwikieditor678:: Is there a particular passage in those articles you want to cite? It seems it would be more useful to add a new sentence or two based on that paper.
- I have trouble accepting the premise of the paper: I don't see computer chips being any less reliable than the computers of the 1970s, at least in the wild (after manufacturer culling). I work with a lot of SoC development and system failure seems to be due to parts other than the MPU. —EncMstr (talk) 14:04, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
- @EncMstr:: The wiki article on Soft_error has section Designing_around_soft_errors, which is exactly what is surveyed in the paper, so I will add 1-2 line to make a connection. Similarly, wiki article on fault-tolerance has sections such as redundancy, 'disadvantages' (of fault-tolerance) etc., which are amply surveyed in said paper. Reg. your question, the section "Critical charge" of wiki article Soft_error itself explains why processors are becoming more vulnerable to soft-errors. Also see ref [1,7] (among many) and Section 2 in the survey paper which corroborate this. Even after manufacture culling, high soft-errors may be observed due to decrease in Q_crit with ongoing process scaling, since soft-errors are caused due to cosmic radiation which are not affected by manufacturer culling.
678, I looked thru all your contribution is it is obvious to me that you are more interested in promoting a Mittal, rather than adding knowledge to wikipedia. Your edits will be reverted per WP:COI and WP:NOTHERE. Staszek Lem (talk) 00:12, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Speedy deletion nomination of Dantes
A tag has been placed on Dantes requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.
If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Berek (talk) 11:40, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Hello, thanks for cleaning up the references at Rosary Lakes. There is apparently a formatting error with the first reference which I was unable to fix myself. Could you please return to that article and fix it?– Gilliam (talk) 06:14, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
- I tried to fix it three different ways. I am looking at help for it, but so far not finding anyhing productive. I am hoping by it being in the citation error category maybe someone familiar with those will fix it. —EncMstr (talk) 06:17, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
