Hi G-W Re: Your edit [1] I'd suggest the original was more accurate. See the discussion in the Other Names section of the article. Thanks, LeadSongDog 15:21, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your suggestion.
"World War I" is one of several names applied long after the end of the 1914-18 War, that was contemporarily referred to as the "Great War". That usage became unusual until re-introduced by the late 60's TV series of that name, I suspect. Rather a lot of meaning to pack into the change from "also" to "then", I admit. I was trying to minimise the word count, pending further discussion. Incidentally, did you see my entry in the WWI Discussion page: [2]?
I had missed the Other Names section and will review my suggestions accordingly, later.

AYRS[edit] that I see "Giles" and "AYRS" in the same sentence, it stirs up dim memories--were you a participant in the AYRS mailing list that Dave Culp used to run back around 1997? scot 18:43, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes GilesW 21:40, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
Right, the Bernard Smith related self-stabilizing hydrofoil stuff (I kept a copy of all the messages I had from the mailing list). Now how did I manage to remember that for a decade, with my crappy memory? scot 22:00, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
Right again, congrats, I'm flattered I think! Time I did more about it & put some videos of it working on YouTube. My email address is in the latest AYRS Catalyst if you have that.GilesW 22:07, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Nuclear Rabi frequency?[edit]

Hi G-W, I notice you are a regular contributor to the Nuclear magnetic resonance article; I wonder if you could help clear something up for me. A while ago the following paragraph was added (by an unregistered user) to the article on the Rabi frequency:

"In the context of a nuclear magnetic resonance experiment, the Rabi frequency is the nutation frequency of a sample's net nuclear magnetization vector about a radiofrequency field. (Note that this is distinct from the Larmor frequency, which characterizes the precession of a transverse nuclear magnetization about a static magnetic field.)"

I am only familiar with the Rabi frequency in the context of atomic physics. I've done a quick google search and it is regularly mentioned on pages concerning NMR. I feel that these are two distinct concepts that probably merit separate articles. Do you have any thoughts on this? Thanks, DJIndica 19:05, 22 October 2007 (UTC)
