Diagrams for Computation of CRC[edit]

Hallo Regregex. Please can you describe some more of the diagram that you would like to have made for Computation of CRC? Cuddlyable3 (talk) 10:43, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Hallo again. Did you really see and fix moire on the Fibonacci LFSR diagram? It really IS 351 not 350 pixels wide. Cuddlyable3 (talk) 13:58, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes, but being only 1 pixel out it's a giant, subtle moiré. I saw the sides were sharp but the middle was blurred. It's more noticeable on LCD screens. -- Regregex (talk) 10:10, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
At offset 6h: in the header of LFSR-F16.gif the word 5F 01 i.e. 15Fh states that the width is 351 [1]. It happens that this diagram started life as LFSR-F16.bmp in which it is easy to count the pixels (because no compression) and was later converted to a .gif (lossless compression) for Wikipedia using The Gimp. (A .png was also possible but .gif was the only format for the animated diagram.) -- Cuddlyable3 (talk) 19:23, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

I'm not disputing that the image file Image:LFSR-F16.gif is 351 px wide. I haven't changed it in any way. I only edited the image tag in the article from 350 px to 351 px so that its width matched the width of the image. Prior to that the server was scaling the image and displaying 350px-LFSR-F16.gif (URI is from the HTML page source of the previous revision.) The blurring is a permanent feature of that thumbnail. If I hadn't looked at the source .gif I would have found out it was 351 px wide by trying 349 px and finding the moiré got worse. HTH. -- Regregex (talk) 23:28, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

I have put 2 animations at Computation of CRC. Cuddlyable3 (talk) 14:45, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

They look great, thanks again. -- Regregex (talk) 22:14, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

High bit omitted in Cyclic redundancy check[edit]

I suggest, if I may, adding something like "High bit omitted" to the representations column title in the crc table. I googled into the table without reading the entire article and missed that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.118.76.130 (talk) 06:45, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Regarding an edit summary in Cyclic redundancy check[edit]

Regregex, In response to your question, I am not interested in becoming a regular contributor so I have not set up an account. Two years ago I noticed in the discussion that someone asked what code CRC 32 IEEE represented. I answered the Hamming Code. Someone else copied that response and put it on the page. At that time the page cited my paper with Joe Hammond as the source of the CRC. That is true. This week I noticed that someone had changed that to Joe's Rome Air Development Center (RADC), now called Rome Labs. report. So I edited it to put in the full set of sources. Joe and I had separate AF contracts so we had to produce separate final reports but we worked together, each doing a part of the work and then we published a joint paper in the open literature. Joe and I were co developers and I wanted that to be clear. I am ok with your edit relocating the discussion. Signed: Kenneth Brayer —Preceding unsigned comment added by 146.115.95.96 (talk) 23:24, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for the illuminating info. Happy editing, however much you wish to do! -- Regregex (talk) 11:16, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/London - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at gmail.com.

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 23:47, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

The Contribution Team cordially invites you to Imperial College London

Why I deleted DOI 100.2/ADA014825 from Cyclic redundancy check[edit]

http://www.dtic.mil/srch/doc?collection=t3&id=ADA014825 states this: Handle / proxy Url: No Full Text PDF Available So, the military has not actually assigned a doi for this. You are right, that if it had a doi, then it would be 100.2/ADA014825. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AManWithNoPlan (talkcontribs) 21:46, 24 February 2011

Disambiguation link notification for January 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Disc Filing System, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Macro (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.

Machine-readable postal marking[edit]

I have created a disambiguation page for machine-readable postal markings. (Originally I created it as a redirect to category:postal markings.) The U.S. postal service uses 5 types that I know of:

Please feel free to add a request for this fifth one to WP:RA. Bwrs (talk) 05:44, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:09, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
