Hi Kira!

I have put together a survey for female editors of Wikipedia (and related projects) in order to explore, in greater detail, women's experiences and roles within the Wikimedia movement. It'd be wonderful if you could participate!

It's an independent survey, done by me, as a fellow volunteer Wikimedian. It is not being done on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation. I hope you'll participate!

Just click this link to participate in this survey, via Google!

Any questions or concerns, feel free to email me or stop by my user talk page. Also, feel free to share this any other female Wikimedians you may know. It is in English, but any language Wikimedia participants are encouraged to participate. I appreciate your contributions - to the survey and to Wikipedia! Thank you!

Windows NT platform support[edit]

Hello, Kira

I had a question about this edit that you made in Microsoft Windows article, though I hope I am not bothering you unnecessarily. Why do you think the fact that for twelve years, Windows NT did not support any platform beside x86 is not worth mentioning?

Best regards,

Because it isn't accurate. Every major NT release has supported at least one non-x86 platform - Windows 2000 through 2008 R2 supported the Intel/HP Itanium processor. Kiralexis (talk) 22:54, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Do you know for sure that Itanium is distinct from x86? (Articles tend to treat them distinctly but so do they treat IA-32 and x64, which are both versions of x86.) Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 00:11, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
Yes. Itanium is a totally different ISA loosely derived from HP's previous PA-RISC, and is totally distinct from x86. The Itanium article already goes into significant detail on this, as does the Itanium Software Developer's Manual ( There's limited compatibility with 32-bit x86 programs using a software emulator, just like there was with Windows on Alpha. (Note: I'm also a professional Itanium programmer.) Kiralexis (talk) 00:14, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
Hello. Thanks for the info. (Actually, I did try to read Itanium article but it's too technical.) I assume it would also be inaccurate to say "for twelve years, Windows NT supported Intel platforms", so, I guess that's that. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 00:33, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to NEC SX architecture may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.
