Notes to myself[edit]

REALD cinema[edit]

Farry you made the following edit on the REALD cinema page quite a while ago.

Real-D however uses a single projector that alternately projects the right-eye frame and left-eye frame, and circularly polarizes these frames, clockwise for the right-eye and counterclockwise for the left-eye, using a liquid-crystal screen placed in front of the projector lens.

There are two conventions with regard to the definition of clockwise and counter clockwise. Refer to the article on circular polarization. Here are some quotes.

Circular polarization may be referred to as right or left, depending on the direction in which the electric field vector rotates. Unfortunately, two opposing historical conventions exist. In physics, astronomy, and optics, polarization is defined..........In electrical engineering, however, ..........To avoid confusion, it is good practice to specify "as seen from the receiver" (or transmitter) when discussing polarization matters.

I'm personally assuming it is from the view of the projector, but the sentence is not absolutely clear on it.

I am writing an extensive article on it for WikiAnswers.

Could you please clarify this for me and maybe give me your source.

Thank you

Sorry, I didn't give the source because it was somebody's blog (as I said on the talk page). I'd have to Google it to find it again, and you're likely to have as much success as me. I put it in Wikipedia on the principle that unsourced questionable info was an improvement over what it replaced which was unsourced misleading info. --Farry (talk) 09:53, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

I mailed the inventor last night, he didn't know off hand but said that he might get back to me. However if nothing turns up, I think it should me removed as an unknown blogger isn't quite enough,(in my opinion). I personally took it at faith and may have lost time. That being said, my article depends on it and if I have to somehow test a pair of glasses, I will.

Thanks again. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dave3457 (talkcontribs) 16:55, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Davenport Lyons[edit]


I saw you'd reversed all the edits to the Davenport Lyons article made from a London based IP address sometime in July. There's another series of edits from the same IP address between 30 September 2009 and 27 November and the opening of the article currently reads like a brochure for the firm. I'm new to this so wanted to check before I did anything - should I remove the edits again?


(Furtled! (talk) 04:21, 29 November 2009 (UTC))

It's not as bad as the last changes from that IP, but I think it should be changed back, yes. Go to the page history, click on the date of the last edit before those changes to display that version, click edit page, in the edit summary put something about that IP address as having been previously identified as Davenport-Lyons staff, and save it.--Farry (talk) 16:14, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, I've reverted it back and will keep an eye on it. :)

I apologise for that edit. A few dubious edits occurred while I slept, and I just put it back to a version which seemed 'clean'. I admit I haven't read the Polish stuff closely. Ohconfucius ¡digame! 02:32, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
