Expanded Archive 5[edit]

I just expanded my Archive5 to include March and April of 2012. mbeychok (talk) 05:54, 19 September 2012 (UTC)


When you comment your edits of references using numerical numbers. It's kind of moot because the numbers aren't persistent across changes. Better to name it using the title/host/author etc.. Electron9 (talk) 16:28, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

File:Reflux(2).JPG missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:Reflux(2).JPG is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:09, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

De Laval Nozzle[edit]

In the Exhaust Gas Velocity section, why do the variables in the last few paragraphs need to be bolded? It's not hard to see them if you read that section, and I think it looks pretty annoying as it is. They should either be un-bolded or put into math format, but I'd like to leave them as HTML. AllHailZeppelin (talk) 05:53, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

I completely agree with you that the variables in the text should remain as HTML. However, I disagree that they should be unbolded. In my eyes, the variables being bolded makes that text section much easier to read and to understand. Perhaps, we must just agree to disagree. Regards, mbeychok (talk) 14:28, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
...So that means it should be your way? AllHailZeppelin (talk) 04:32, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
The variables in the text were in bold font for many years before you decided to "math-ize" the variable list and then also decided to to unbold the variables in the text. I am simply of the opinion that the variables in the text should remain in bold font as they were for many years. I have no preferences regarding your "math-izing" of the variable list ... but, as I said just above, the bolded variables in the text make it much easier to read and to understand. Perhaps that is why no one unbolded them over the many years that they have been bolded.
Just as a matter of interest, those variables in the text have been bolded since April 2006 (six years ago). mbeychok (talk) 05:42, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
Ok, fair enough. AllHailZeppelin (talk) 06:49, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Activated sludge control[edit]

I wanted to thank you for editing my activated sludge control addition i made a couple of days ago. I, and other california operators, are trained with the " Ken Kerri courses". Cal state university sacramento dept of civil engineering. I shoul probably make an account but haven't yet.

By the bye, i tried to correct/edit the Sewage treatment sectin in Bioreactors and it was "undone", it has little to do with wastewater but instead tissue culture.

Perhaps, you could intervene — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:23, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

A message from William.....[edit]

Civility, is a great thing. I will not engage in any negative, counterproductive "edit wars" or messages with you. I will however promote and improve Wikipedia in a positive environment, comrade. Please don't forget Wikipedia is a public place. Your negative, personal attacks do no justice here. Positive thoughts, positive actions, positive words. :D Respectfully, William Cozzycovers 00:19, 9 November 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cozzycovers (talkcontribs)

Orifice Plate[edit]

Sorry didn't know how to use this talk thing this is the first time I've made an edit. Would have done this before just undoing the edit. I see now that Equations 5 and onward were all based off of the other (pretty sure incorrect?) equation for Y. I don't have the time to look at changing those until next week, not sure what to do about simplifying the mass flow equation anyway... (talk) 15:06, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Regret for Editing Cooling tower section[edit]

Troubleshoot of cooling towers,will help to manage the public about the defects and guide in troubleshooting of cooling towers. We need not publicise our website and no need to do so also . our approach is to help the public.

Hope you do understand amd go thru section first and then Edit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:40, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

When an anonymous newcomer to WP makes only one edit, the addition of a link to his/her company's website, the odds are that he/she are only interested in advertising that company's website. I did read your trouble shooting guide and found that it contained very little of real value to the Cooling tower article.

Milton R. Beychok[edit]

I have started the article "Milton R. Beychok". Do you wish to suggest improvements?
Wavelength (talk) 19:37, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your offer, Wavelength ... but I feel that it would not be "kosher" for me to help write the original version of the article. Perhaps, after it has been written, I could then offer some comments.
Some brief biographies, that you may find useful, are available at:
The bottom section of my website's home page at
The top section of the homepage at
Both of those sections include a photo of myself and you are free to make use of it if you so desire. I am now 91 years old and that photo was taken about 8 years ago.
Best regards, mbeychok (talk) 01:15, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately, the article was tagged for speedy deletion because of not demonstrating notability, and later it was deleted, possibly before you could see it. Here is a copy of the last version minus the speedy deletion tag. (I adapted the copy for this talk page by revising the level of the headings, and by using a colon before the category.)

Milton R. Beychok was a captain in the U.S. Army, a manager of process design at the Fluor Corporation, and an independent consulting engineer.[1]


He received a Bachelor of Science in aChemical Engineeringa from the Texas A&M University, but during his student years he served the U.S. Army during bWorld War IIb in France and Germany.

Manager of process design[edit]

From 1950 to 1970, he worked for cthec Fluor Corporation, managing the chemical engineering process design of petroleum refineries, petrochemical plants and natural gas treatment plants.

Honorary award[edit]

The Beychok-Montemayor Award honors Milton R. Beychok and Art Montemayor. [2]

External links[edit]

Category:American non-fiction environmental writers

Thank you for suggesting those two links. I still hope to start an article about you again, but it seems to me that the information provided by those links is insufficient to satisfy the criteria that are used by editors who patrol new articles. If I could use information from a newspaper interview, then probably that source would be eligible as being an independent third-party source. Please consider offering to be interviewed by the Los Angeles Times and pointing to this discussion to show that the idea came from me. If the interview becomes available on the World Wide Web, then you can leave a message on my talk page with a link to the interview.
Wavelength (talk) 20:37, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
I revised your first sentence so as to mention my army service, my work at Fluor and my consulting work in their correct chronological order. I also added a few words marked by enclosing the three of them with superscripts a, b, and c. I further added some wiki internal links "process design", "U.S. Army", "World War II", "France" and "Germany".
As I mentioned earlier, I am now 91 years old and my wife and I are living in an assisted living facility. I seriously doubt that the Los Angeles Times would be interested in interviewing me. If the Wikipedia Editors do no accept your article about me, then so be it. It is not that important to me and thanks for your efforts.
mbeychok (talk) 02:16, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. Your revision of the article "List of American non-fiction environmental writers" motivated me to do what I could to be sure that the new entry qualified for inclusion. (Related guidelines are at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lists and Wikipedia:Red link and Wikipedia:Write the article first.) If that entry stays in that list, then other editors might claim the need for equal treatment for other entries without articles (regardless of notability or the lack of it), and the list might become unmanageable. I hope that you would not be offended by my removal of that entry.
In the history of the article "List of environmental books", I removed entries without articles at 16:22, 13 October 2011, at 16:25, 13 October 2011, at 02:51, 8 July 2012, at 15:48, 13 July 2012, at 01:50, 3 October 2012, at 15:39, 6 April 2013, at 15:44, 6 May 2013, and at 14:39, 4 July 2013.
Your revision of the article "List of environmental books" at 16:28, 12 June 2014 does not have that problem, because the added entry has an article already existing.
