Categorization of articles[edit]

An article is not considered to be "categorized" just because it has a stub template on it, because stub templates are for maintenance purposes and are meant to be removed as soon as the article is no longer of stub length. An article is correctly tagged as being uncategorized, no matter how many stub "categories" are present, if it doesn't also have at least one real, permanent content category on it in addition to the stub templates.

Request for favor - coordination[edit]

I maintain a list of references at User:Chatul/References#IBM Manuals that I copy from when editing other articles. I'd appreciate it if whenever you added a citation of an IBM publication to an article in User:Chatul or added a url to an existing citation, you could make the same addition in User:Chatul/References#IBM Manuals. IAC, I appreciate your taking the time to add the url for A22-6843 to User:Chatul/IBM System/360 architecture.

Thanks. Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz Username:Chatul (talk) 16:16, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Foonly discussion[edit]

Hi! I just posted in the discussion thread on Talk:Foonly where you posted in 2008. Could I email-interview you? Kragen Javier Sitaker (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 03:25, 3 January 2012 (UTC).

Did the 2311-11 use CKD[edit]

I think if you carefully read the 2311 reference manual (e.g., p, 1-10) u will find that the controller for the S/360 M20 did write the individual sectors in a CKD format with the Count field having KL=0 and DL=270. In the S/360 version the record starts with an address mark while in the M20 version the record starts with a sector mark, otherwise they are the same (excepting end of record Gap 4). My recollection is that this enabled one way compatibility, probably allowing the 2841 to read S/360 M20 written 1316 packs, but to be honest I don't recall which way (depends upon address marks and gaps aligned to sector marks). It's probably in one of the controller references or maybe a M20 reference. So the material u deleted was correct but not particularly relevant to the section so I didn't put it back.
