Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Zork, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages TENEX and Don Woods (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/July 31, 2015[edit]

A summary of a Featured Article you nominated at WP:FAC will appear on the Main Page soon. It mostly follows the lead section; how does it look? - Dank (push to talk) 00:18, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

@Dank: Excellent summary! One suggestion though, moving/modifying one sentence...

Airborne Interception radar, Mark IV, was the first successful air-to-air radar system, used in Britain's Bristol Beaufighter heavy fighters by early 1941 in the Second World War. Early development of the Mk. IV was prompted by a 1936 memo from the inventor Henry Tizard to Robert Watt, director of the radar research efforts, who agreed to allow physicist Taffy Bowen to form a team to study the problem of air interception. The team had a test bed system in flights later that year, but progress was delayed for four years by emergency relocations, three abandoned production designs, and Bowen's increasingly adversarial relationship with Watt's replacement, Albert Percival Rowe. The Mk. IV had many limitations, including displays that were difficult to interpret, a maximum range that decreased with the aircraft's altitude, and a minimum range that was barely close enough to allow the pilot to see the target. Yet the the Mk. IV played a role in the RAF's increasingly effective response to The Blitz, the Luftwaffe‍‍ '​‍s night bombing campaign. The Mk. VIII largely relegated the Mk. IV to second-line duties by 1943. (Full article...)

I've moved the part about the Blitz down, so it reads more chronological.

Addition to NS320xx[edit]

Hello Maury, could you do me a favor? Can you please add the following sentence to the article NS320xx : "Since June 2015 an FPGA implementation of the NS32000 architecture is available at www.opencores.org project M32632." ? Best regards, Udo Moeller — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2003:63:2F0F:4444:5D0C:28E6:2273:11D5 (talk) 09:32, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

@2003:63:2F0F:4444:5D0C:28E6:2273:11D5: I looked for any independent 3rd party article for this, but couldn't. The only thing I found was in the headers in the OpenCores source, and the tribute page (which is you?) Do you know of any? Any links to articles or anything like that?

AI Mk. IV radar[edit]

Hi Maury,

Nice job in getting AI Mk. IV radar up to featured status! I have posed a question on the article's talk page and would be glad for your input.

Neelix (talk) 01:06, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm here to add my congratulations, especially when I see you had rather exceptional difficulties at FAC. It's interesting to see how some very experienced and accomplished reviewers were having quite serious problems with some rather straightforward technical matters. Anyway, it's good to think non-technical people were willing to help point out the difficulties they were having and, I'm sure, improving the article in the process. I was fascinated reading the article which seems to me to have been very perceptively written. (And, yes, I'm another failed physicist!). Thincat (talk) 10:07, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

@Neelix:@Thincat: Thanks for the kind words everyone. I was camping in a park with no internet for the week, so I missed it all! C'est la vie. Thincat; I found the non-technical reviews to be the best, there were some very good suggestions on re-ordering that significantly improved the article. I've taken this to heart on newer articles - chronological ordering generally works best, and if it doesn't read well then there's likely something wrong/missing in the content.
