To misquote George Orwell, all editors are equal but some are more equal than others. In my own case, after a prolonged disagreement with one particular article squatter over whether neutral point of view should include some material from the universe of centrist opinion and not just a compromise between garden variety animal rights sympathizers and bomb throwing lunatics, I dropped out for a long time then returned to a greatly reduced scope of editing, confined to topics which don't have a great amount of dissent (or at least whose advocates do not normally burn down schools and hospitals and assault people on the streets).

Work IP numbers[edit]

These are my present IP numbers at work: (talk) 18:41, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

I edited from this IP today following a browser crash. Trilobitealive (talk) 03:33, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

However apparently this server has multiple IP addresses so if you think that I may have made a problem edit reply here and I'll check. Trilobitealive (talk) 19:16, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Here is another one that I found then I was accidentally logged off during an edit: Trilobitealive (talk) 05:46, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Library access tip[edit]

Saw a comment of yours about not having access to JSTOR due to being far from your public library. If you are able to travel once to your public library to register for a library card, it generally is valid for life. Thereafter, you will be able to access JSTOR and other databases from whatever computer you use to access Wikipedia.

Call them and ask if they have any outreach programs like Bookmobile, Books-by-mail, or Remote Access Patrons (RAPS). Ask them when the next Bookmobile visit to your area is, and whether you can sign up for a card at the Bookmobile. Hope this helps, Mathglot (talk) 04:24, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. That is very helpful. Trilobitealive (talk) 02:21, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

I think I'm missing something on the .308 Winchester page.[edit]

Hi,Thanks for your message. The problem was in the infobox. Someone entered erratic load data that did not show up on your screen because of wrong formatting.--Francis Flinch (talk) 08:45, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. I've done what I think may be the correct changes on the page. BTW I was following your talk page where I posted the first comment. Keep up the good work!Trilobitealive (talk) 15:58, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
The infobox is limited to 5 loads. That will give a decent representation for a chambering muzzle velocity en energy performance using light to heavy projectiles. I corrected an energy error of load 1 that conspicuously differed from the other E0 values. For DYI kinetic energy (E_\text{k} =\tfrac{1}{2} mv^2 ) calculations you can use online tools like
