Hey Jengelh, you are absolutely right about the timestamp on the article. My bad for misreading it and missing the timezone. I ad assumed it was in the timezone of the feed. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by And65 (talkcontribs) 02:21, 31 March 2007 (UTC).

Your edits to ReiserFS[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, adding content without citing a reliable source, as you did to ReiserFS, is not consistent with our policy of verifiability. This is especially important when dealing with biographies of living people, but applies to all Wikipedia articles. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia.

Image copyright problem with Image:Vw.png[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Vw.png. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Jusjih (talk) 01:31, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

I have undeleted it and you have seven days to tag it. Thanks for your message.--Jusjih (talk) 01:03, 24 March 2008 (UTC)


Hello. Regarding your request for comments. The fundamental components of the OS known as Linux and/or GNU/Linux, were designed to be compatible with UNIX. They are not identical but the intention was to make the system able to run Unix programs and to make it easy for people using Unix to switch to the new system. It is for this reason that most of the literature and online sources refer to it as a Unix-like operating system. The use of this term is not based on just one feature. It is based on the way the whole system operates. I don't want to get into writing a long message but if you wish I could try to send you some further references. --Grandscribe (talk) 09:46, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Quotation marks, Michael Jackson[edit]

Hello Jengelh. I undid your revisions to the Michael Jackson article, where you changed the style of quotation marks from simple double quotes to the "fancier" typographic quotes. Please see the "Quotation Marks" section in the Manual of Style, where it states that double quotes should be used and typographic quotes should not. Thank you. -Sme3 (talk) 14:13, 19 August 2009 (UTC)



You have changed from "int main()" to "int main(void) " in my program .

I see you are C programmer, so can you write something about this change. I'm amatour so your comment is wellcome. If you see any weak parts of this program pleas ad comment or propose better version.

I was trying to make my program multiplatform, and as I know even old version could be run on win, linux and mac.

Change to context switch[edit]

According to Task State Segment, Linux only uses TSS in a very limited manner (one per CPU, not per process) and doesn't use the hardware task switch. Granted, it's not sourced there either, but do you have a reason for doubting it on context switch? I'd prefer a reference one way or another, but it's not uncommon for Intel (and others) to provide hardware support for a feature that is better done in software, leading to that hardware going unused. —ShadowRanger (talk|stalk) 19:20, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

FYI, I found a reference for Linux as well. Assuming I add it, are you okay with the "mainsteam OS" claim in general, even if it doesn't cover everything? —ShadowRanger (talk|stalk) 19:23, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of DJ Deep[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article DJ Deep has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Hi. Please do not add unsourced personal observations or speculation on pop cultural references to articles, as you did with your edit to Funnybot, as this violates Wikipedia's policies of Verifiability and No Original Research. Where cultural references in works of satire or parody are concerned, the source must explicitly mention the work's use of it. Relying instead on personal interpretation or observation is original research, and using sources to form original conclusions not explicitly in those sources is synthesis, which is a form of original research.

Rerouting check modification on the ipfilter page[edit]

It seems that the rerouting check is performed after nat.OUTPUT chain. That makes sense, as you want to route based on the address updated by NAT. I think that filter.OUTPUT is probably also run before the reroute check, though I do not have strong evidence =) I did a change on 01:16, 10 October 2013 and moved nat.OUTPUT and filter.OUTPUT before the "Rerouting check" block [1]. But it was undone on 02:15, 28 February 2014 by your change [2]. Was it accidental, or there is a reason for that? IlyaBobyr (talk) 23:32, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

The revert was unintended (I have a local copy of the file I use as master), but correct nevertheless. A rule like `iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -d -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to` is non-functional because the packet is scheduled for the wrong interface (and then falls prey to rp_filter). j.eng (talk) 08:41, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
What do you mean by "scheduled for the wrong interface"? Do you mean that the interface is still selected based on the original destination IP? Or you mean that the return IP would be incorrect? I think that I did have a case were it was important to understand at what point exactly re-routing is happening and I came to a conclusion that it is only after nat.OUTPUT chain, as rules written with an assumption that it happens before did not work. It could have failed for a different reason, and I do not remember exactly the problem to show it right now. IlyaBobyr (talk) 23:56, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, the selected interface is unaffected by NAT and therefore retained. j.eng (talk) 06:56, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

What about virtual interfaces? Such as eth1.1?
Here is an example where outgoing interface is changed by selecting a different routing table. If the packet is not rerouted after OUTPUT, I think, this solutions would not work.
I did not try specifically this one myself.
P.S. Is this the best place for a discussion? Let me know if there is a better place. IlyaBobyr (talk) 23:26, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

In general, the kernel and its components make no distinction, also because figuring out what is "virtual" and what is not, is undecidable. For example: If eth1 is a USB dongle, then eth1.1 will disappear when you remove it, so is it perhaps “real” and not “virtual” as you say? Another definition of “virtual” is about the presence of a MAC layer (Layer 2 in the OSI model), something that does have an impact for software. tun devices have no layer-2, but tap devices do. “Implemented purely software” is another possible definition for “virtual”, but then again, is eth0 inside a virtual machine real or virtual? So there is not really anything that depends on the “virtual”ness because it can't be known; but the layer-2 thing is important for some software (like DHCP) nevertheless.
Philosophy thoughts aside… That which is described in the link is functional from a quick glance. This is because changes to the packet in the mangle table are explicitly documented to involve a reroute check at the time of mangling. An appropriate box is already shown in the schematic image we are talking about.
I do not mind the place of discussion, maybe you prefer the Netfilter user mailing list ( ). Since I currently do not read posts on the netfilter list, but only on netfilter-devel, you would have to explicitly include me in the Cc: field. (Email address at ). j.eng (talk) 00:03, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Japanese verb conjugation[edit]

Hi! I'm afraid you are wrong. Kusaru and nasaru are both 動ラ五(四). Nasaru is a respect form of nasu and the causative is not used because it's a respect word. Nasaseru is a causative of nasu. My example might not be a good one, but you mix up two different verbs. See Honorific speech in Japanese#Types of honorific. Oda Mari (talk) 17:55, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

You were changing the row for v5aru from くださる to くさる. However, くさる is not v5aru (cf. the EDICT database). 腐る [くさる] /(v5r,vi) (1) to rot/to go bad/to decay/to spoil... 為さる [なさる] /(v5aru,vt) (hon) (uk) to do/(P)/EntL1157090X/. j.eng (talk) 02:58, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry that I didn't know about v5aru as it is included in v5r/動ラ五(四) in Japan. When I first saw くださる, it looked simply unnatural and wrong to a native speaker's eyes as I have never heard and used it. But thank you for understanding causative is not used with 尊敬語. Happy editing! Oda Mari (talk) 09:03, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Your edits to Parallel ATA[edit]

Please not make edits that do not affect the rendered text, such as many of the edits you recently made to Parallel ATA.
