Named anchors not working...[edit]

Hi Hv - the new bug referred to in bug #383 was reported as bug #399. The resolution was that this was a bug in Internet Explorer (5.5 and possibly earlier versions). --HappyDog 14:26, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

Ah, ok, that isn't it then - this is to do with in-page links when previewing a subsection edit, and I'm using Mozilla. Thanks, Hv 14:51, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

Category:Integer sequences[edit]

Hi, replied to your question on my own talk page; it was housecleaning, and if you have better ideas, let me know. linas 16:47, 24 July 2005 (UTC)

Wiktionary: WS:TR [edit]

Thanks for your response. Yes, I had forgotten about dick. I've reworded my question there. --Connel MacKenzie 03:14, August 8, 2005 (UTC)

OEIS linking syntax[edit]

Cool, I've responded there. Hv 02:05, 19 August 2005 (UTC)

quasi-Open Source games[edit]

Hi, there!

I'm not entirely sure what term to use for that kind of software. I've been pondering that question for the last couple of days, actually. :) The games are certainly "freeware," but that term doesn't express the fact that the source is available. At the moment, I can't do any better than "freeware games with available source code." Maybe somebody should start a discussion of this on the category talk page, because I know there are still more games in there that need to be looked at.

For the record, it's actually not the FSF that defines the term "open source"; it's the Open Source Definition from OSI: [1]. The two groups are somewhat at odds with each other, and they have competing definitions (there is a Free Software definition). In practice the definitions are basically the same, although rarely one group will deem that a license meets their definition while the other will not. Apple's Darwin was like this for a short time: the Open Source Group certified the license as meeting their definition, but FSF did not certify it as meeting the Free Software definition. Eventually Apple addressed whatever FSF's concern was, and met both definitions.

Yes, there is definitely a vernacular since of open source. Microsoft tried to paint their "Shared Source" initiative as being open source for a while, I believe, or at least they encouraged everyone to think it was the same. But the official Open Source people are as concerned about the rights to what you can do with the source code as they are about just seeing the source code itself. One thing that specifically is allowed in the definition is commercial use (or any other field of endeavor). Jdavidb 15:49, 30 August 2005 (UTC)

Dirichlet prime deletion debate[edit]

I see you once asked for a reference on "Dirichlet prime" at User_talk:Giftlite#Dirichlet_primes. I just wanted to inform you of the ongoing Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Dirichlet_prime. 195.82.216.113 15:49, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

You're right; the typo's been fixed. Ugajin 04:21, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Mathematics CotW[edit]

Hey Hv, I am writing you to let you know that the Mathematics Collaboration of the week(soon to "of the month") is getting an overhaul of sorts and I would encourage you to participate in whatever way you can, i.e. nominate an article, contribute to an article, or sign up to be part of the project. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks--Cronholm144 21:39, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Gray code#Constructing an n-bit Gray code[edit]

Hello, Hv. I put up a possibly nicer iterative construction of Gray codes in the talk page for that subject, if you want to look at it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 147.26.161.144 (talk) 20:53, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
