Thermodynamics[edit]

You should check the main article on thermodynamics.

I redid it a little bit: people tend to confuse thermodynamics with heat transfer or they take a semantic approach (the dynamics of heat energy or something).

I redid that part to express the first law of thermodynamics E=W+Q and second law S=INT(dQrev/T) but I would like somebody to check it.

As a ChemEng for people, nowadays, to say that "thermodynamics is about the transformation of "heat energy" into other forms of energy" is excruciating!. --Crio de la Paz (talk) 05:59, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Re.: Vile vortices[edit]

I have a copy of Charles Berlitz's book, The Bermuda Triangle and it has a map depicting these things. They are appearrantly real, and if you overlay the major shipping and flight paths taken by shipping and the major airlines and/or the military on these, they may present a danger. I have done this, thus I'm stating that there may be a danger to shipping and air travel from these things, which may even be wormholes for crying out loud. Just awaiting further evidence.

Answer to your question to Paddles[edit]

Hi. In answer to your question, no I'm not that Tim Anderson. I know people from those three categories (engineers, UNSW students, Moore students) and even one who fits all three, but I don't fit any of them. Maybe one day I'll expand my profile but it's not a high priority at the moment. Regards, Paddles 09:37, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

Sydney Anglicans[edit]

The discussion seemed to have been dormant for some time, and other diocesan articles were already titled "Anglican/Episcopal Diocese of X". It was a matter of consistency. Of course, its not an irreversible change if there is significant dissent. Carolynparrishfan 12:21, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Journeyman, have you considered joining WP:Anglicanism? While I realise that Sydney is largely Anglican in-name-only, you might help to counterbalance the considerable liberal Catholic membership we currently have. Carolynparrishfan 18:54, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Granted, but classical Anglicanism is both Reformed and Catholic. Innovations like lay presidency and free-form liturgy are entirely outside of the Anglican ethos. But all of this just goes to show why we need you. Welcome aboard! Carolynparrishfan 14:00, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Re Anglican Chuch in Sydney[edit]

Journeyman,

What you are writing is a justification for the Sydney way of doing things. What I am trying to write is an explanation, for non-Sydney people, of the way in which Sydney substatially differs from Anglicanism, as practised in England, where Evangelicalism leads to a very different style.

It wasn't me that wrote the description of Calvinist and so on, background, but I must tell you that leaving it out greatly diminishes the understanding of other eductaed Christians as to the style of Theology in Sydney.

Your paragraph about Broughton Knox and Moore is valuable and should stay in. So is your comment about people identifying with their local "meeting", but the very fact that you call it a "meeting" separates you from Anglicanism in general. Please remember that we are talking about the Anglican Church, for a world-wide audience. There are understandings as to how anglican church performs and is conducted. You are writing as if Sydney presented the 'norm'. The term "Eucharist" is widely used and understood by Anglicans, world wide. It is only considered a sign of Roman Catholicism in Sydney.

I am about to reinstate what I have written, incorporating some of what you have written. And let's be honest about what happpens at youth services. Perhaps where you are there is some sort of respect for the basis of liturgy, but don't imagine it's universal.

--Amandajm 07:37, 14 June 2006 (UTC)


Would you mind leaving things in context? I didn't write the bit about the Church being associated with th early days of the colony, but it's essential to an understanding. To say "because of its age" is nonsense. There are other dioceses that date from the 7th century. This doesn't make them wealthy. What makes Sydney wealthy primarily is its real estate, and that situation goes back to its association with the founding of the colony. You seem to be chopping out anything that you feel might reflect negatively upon the diocese. There is a great deal of dissatisfaction among older Sydney Anglicans. You are aware of this, of course. It needs to be reflected. It is not the evangelical focus upon God's word that offends them, mostly, bbut the arrogance with which traditional Anglican (and Christian) practice is tossed aside.

Frankly, I am appalled at the fact that many young people do not know the Lord's Prayer. It is the thing that more than any other church tradition unites Christians, because, regardless of our background, we can pray it together.

--Amandajm 08:40, 14 June 2006 (UTC)


Hi, Journeyman, This article is beginning to look really good, thanks to your extra work, a few additions and some editting. Now as long as nobody chops it up...

I would rather like to write something deeply personal and probably inappropriate about the long process of searching for a place to go, and the frustration of older people who want to do the whole Anglican bit, but who don't want bells, smells, icons and copes. Some of us love singing the Te Deum and have to visit another Diocese in order to do it. I've just been to visit a friend in Newcastle who reminded me of how she and I used to walk around the upper corridors of our high school singing the Te Deum. It's still a regular part of my home worship, and my Moslem neighbours often comment about me singing my prayers.

Fortunately, at Mt Kembla Soldiers and Miners Memorial Church we do the 1662 Common Prayer once a month, with sung canticles, AAPB Communion, and the 1662 Communion, on the Fifth Sunday. We have lay readers twice a month.

I agree with your comment re the confusing nature of the prayerbook. I think AAPB is worse that BCP in that regard. I feel that the best way to avoid the problem is to have heavy-duty printed service sheets rather than books, and run off another sheet with the collect, readings and psalm for the day. At St Stephen's Newtown during the 80s and 90s we often sang a more modern variation of the psalm, or had a cantor and response. The music for the response was written on the sheet for the day, and (since a lot of the church members could read music and those who didn't all caught on fast) it always worked well. You couldn't do that everywhere. There was often a Taize chant for during communion, and when people returned to their seats, they'd join in.

Hope the conference goes well!

Deletion of Lost constellation info[edit]

Hello, You asked why I reverted the reference to constellation info in this edit. The included reference was not from an official site, but rather from an Australian Yahoo site, and it contained speculation and original research, not word from the producers, etc. Also, the link I deleted was from thetailsection.com, a fan site. We've agreed that fan sites will not be referenced as source material. Regards, PKtm 13:08, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Page move debate opinions needed[edit]

Hi, user DIV (a chemical engineer), i.e. User talk:128.250.204.118, and myself (a chemical engineer) have been debating over the name of the Gibbs free energy article for seven months now. DIV is demanding that both the Gibbs free energy and Helmholtz free energy articles be moved to “Gibbs energy” and “Helmholtz energy” per IUPAC definitions, and is continuously rewriting all the related articles in Wikipedia on this view. According to my opinion, as well as others, e.g. 2002 encyclopedia Britannica, 2006 encyclopedia Encarta, 2004 Oxford Dictionary of Chemistry, 2005 Barnes & Noble’s The Essential Dictionary of Science, the 2004 McGraw-Hill Concise Encyclopedia of Chemistry, Eric Weissteins World of Physics: Gibbs Free Energy, etc., Gibbs free energy and Helmholtz free energy are the most common usages. If you have an opinion on this issue could you please comment here. Thanks: --Sadi Carnot 20:11, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

New Challenge for Oceania and Australia[edit]

Hi, Wikipedia:WikiProject Oceania/The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Australia/The 5000 Challenge are up and running based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge which has currently produced over 2300 article improvements and creations. The Australia challenge would feed into the wider region one and potentially New Zealand could have a smaller challenge too. The main goal is content improvement, tackling stale old stubs and important content and improving sourcing/making more consistent but new articles are also welcome if sourced. I understand that this is a big goal for regular editors, especially being summertime where you are, but if you'd like to see large scale quality improvements happening for Oceania and Australia like The Africa Destubathon, which has produced over 1700 articles in 5 weeks, sign up on the page. The idea will be an ongoing national editathon/challenge for the region but fuelled by a series of contests to really get articles on every province and subject mass improved. The Africa contest scaled worldwide would naturally provide great benefits to Oceania countries, particularly Australia and attract new editors. I would like some support from existing editors here to get the Challenges off to a start with some articles to make doing a Destubathon worthwhile and potentially bring about hundreds of improvements in a few weeks through a contest! Cheers.♦ --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 02:12, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
