Please exaplain your edit of Master boot record[edit]

Hpa, can you please explain with a reference(s) why on 6 July 2007 you changed the value of 0x500 as the amount of memory used by a booting PC for system data to 0x600 instead? This should be cited in the text with a good source, and I'm having some difficulty finding an appropriate one. This also affects some clean-up I want to perform on the article. (If I find a source first, you can ignore this or certainly add another.) Daniel B. Sedory 23:19, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Your edits to RS-232[edit]

Thank you for adding useful, well-referenced information! Jeh (talk) 06:55, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

I appreciate your thank you for the work I did on the RS-232 article. Apparently User:Wtshymanski thought it was all stupid and deleted it all. I'm rather upset. Hpa (talk) 21:48, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
Well, that happens sometimes. Like it says on the edit page, if you don't want your stuff mercilessly edited, don't contribute it. I get upset about it too and I chafe a lot at the rules that seem to exclude a lot of useful content. Maybe if there's a way to reformulate the info or give it more background it can be restored. Remember that everything is preserved in the edit history, so restoring your material isn't much trouble as long as not many other edits have been made to the same section. Hope this helps...

NowCommons: File:Newmenu2.png[edit]

File:Newmenu2.png is now available on Wikimedia Commons as Commons:File:SysLinux.png. This is a repository of free media that can be used on all Wikimedia wikis. The image will be deleted from Wikipedia, but this doesn't mean it can't be used anymore. You can embed an image uploaded to Commons like you would an image uploaded to Wikipedia, in this case: [[File:SysLinux.png]]. Note that this is an automated message to inform you about the move. This bot did not copy the image itself. --Erwin85Bot (talk) 16:18, 7 August 2009 (UTC)


You put a citation needed tag about the number of drives required for the levels of raid. Might I inquire as to which levels you doubt are accurate? The only ones that I'm no sure are correct are levels 2 and 3, so I will look for a source, however the rest are all perfectly accurate.

Only if you disregard valid degenerate cases; see the Talk page. Hpa (talk) 20:16, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
