- Fair enough, sorry that I reverted without a good understanding of the subject. (For the record, here's the revert) -- intgr [talk] 14:32, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
I see no difference between a relevant resource from Secure Data Recovery versus one from Data Cent Professional Data Recovery, which by the definition of the rules is a site meant to "attract visitors to a website or promote a product".
If other service sites can add their resources in a reasonable way, I should be able to add mine in a way that makes sense for the page as I did when I originally replaced an outdated reference on a subject matter the page I suggested was immediately relevant to.
If resources from websites offering a product are truly prohibited, then the Data Cent Professional Data Recovery link along with the Graff Data Recovery link in the External Resources section should be removed as well. Should these links be allowed to remain, perhaps I can provide a more information rich piece of content to the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FlockofSmeagols (talk • contribs) 18:12, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
- @FlockofSmeagols: Your comment suggests that you have a conflict of interest and it's clear to me from your behavior that you're not here to improve Wikipedia, but trying every approach possible to add links to securedatarecovery.com; that's sufficient reason to keep reverting your attempts to insert this link. Also, the datacent.com website is by far less spammy than the link that you're trying to insert.
- For what it's worth, I tried also removing the other links, but it was re-added by another experienced editor and it didn't bother me enough to open a discussion. -- intgr [talk] 08:39, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
Now that is the thing, I was trying to improve this Wiki page. Initially, I replaced a BROKEN reference link with a relatively similar resource that I found that I thought would be helpful to the page. When that reference was reverted to an archived version of the old page I replaced, I thought that was understandable so I sought out other ways that would be more acceptable to include a resource I genuinely thought could make the page better.
What came off as aggressive editing on my part was merely me trying to figure out a way to add something I thought was useful to the page in a way that was acceptable to the moderators. You can see why when I see other informational pages from data service companies included in the external resources section, that I would think that that would be the appropriate place to put add the disputed resource. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FlockofSmeagols (talk • contribs) 15:49, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
Hallo, I spotted your pagemove (I'd put the article on my watchlist to see what happened next, after doing a major cleanup while stub-sorting it). I'm sure you're right, but I've raised the point at Wikipedia_talk:Naming_conventions_(Macedonia)#Disambiguating placename article titles that it would be helpful if there was some note there about how to disambiguate article titles, especially as there's a link to that page from Wikipedia:Naming_conventions_(geographic_names)#Macedonia.

- Thanks, I've replied there. -- intgr [talk] 11:25, 22 February 2016 (UTC)
i'm dsambiguating, fyi ;-)
i was Special:Contributions/184.108.40.206. i linked IMD and IMDS to each other because, at the time, imd asked "Did you mean: Imds?" with no mention of IMD. i somewhat feel that IMD and IMDS should still link to each other because, even though it's true that there are lots of disambig pages only one letter different, in this case the single differentiating letter is the S-at-the-end so often used in pluralization (like alien and aliens). i understand why you got rid of the hatnote, though. Just thought i'd mention why i put it there in the first place. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:01, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
Removal of info under "misc" of the disamb. page
Can you tell me why you removed my info from this page...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOI ...The info is correct, there just ins't a page on it, yet.
- @Derpagon: The main purpose of disambiguation pages is to link to existing Wikipedia articles that have similar names (see MOS:DAB), but your entry did not introduce a link to a WP article. Further, only common acronyms should be added to disambig pages, see WP:DABABBREV and MOS:DABINITIALS. -- intgr [talk] 13:57, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
Edit war on mpv page
Hi, just letting you know that 2601:18b:8001:5419:f8fd:e01a:41a8:c3ea is kuchikirukia (so he is citing himself). He has been harassing the mpv issue tracker since yesterday and has repeatedly created new accounts to circumvent bans. He's now taking it to Wikipedia, obviously to push his personal agenda, since the issue in question actually affects at best 0.01% of all mkv files in circulation. He is one of the few people producing files that are affected by the issue. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:36, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks. It's clear to most Wikipedia editors that such content does not belong on WP. Anyway, the edit warring seems to have died down. -- intgr [talk] 23:14, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
Re: Restored citation at Direct memory access
Thanks, the reworded sentences look good to me. The clause I objected to was (emphasized):
- Newer Intel Xeon chipsets include a DMA engine technology called I/O Acceleration Technology (I/OAT), meant to improve network performance on high-throughput network interfaces, in particular gigabit Ethernet and faster.
It sounds like we're on the same page:
- The claim in Wikipedia wasn't supported by the citation and I changed the text in Wikipedia
I still find the graf about Grover's findings from 2006 a little misleading—it has a place in a longer segment, but maybe not 50% of a short blurb about the technology. For example, it isn't the very second thing I'd choose to tell someone about IOAT who has never heard of it before.
MIXMAX statistical tests
@Intgr: @Intgr: As I understand you would like to know if MIXMAX has passed statistical tests. The U01 test was performed for the MIXMAX generator. The results of these tests are published in the article already refereed, K. Savvidy (2015) "The MIXMAX Random Number Generator". Comp.Phys.Communic. 196: 161–165. The article is also available in an open-access site: http://arxiv.org/abs/1403.5355. The Table 1 of the article represents the necessary data. In the last column of the Table 1 one can see that the MIXMAX generators of the dimension N bigger than N=88 are passing the BigCrash suite of tests (the U01 test). The default dimension recommended to the users is N=256. Sincerely George Savvidy (George Savvidy 19:30, 21 April 2016 (UTC))
- Hi, I have replied at Talk:MIXMAX generator. I prefer to keep article-related discussion on the article's talk page, so other interested editors have a better chance of joining in. -- intgr [talk] 08:08, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
Merger discussion for Decentralized autonomous organization
An article that you have been involved in editing—Decentralized autonomous organization—has been proposed for merging with another article. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. Jtbobwaysf (talk) 17:42, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
