Panasonic FZ5[edit]

May I ask how you like your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5? [1] Have you taking any images of animals at maximum zoom? Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 19:09, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

I thought I replied on your talk page already, but I guess not.  :-) I can send you a couple of sample pictures of an American Goldfinch if you like. What is the best way to contact you? Nevermind I just saw your email address. I'll send the photos there. Cheers! --W0lfie 00:49, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
hrm... I tried your email address listed on your user page, but it bounced back. I'm thinking of uploading the photos to the Commons anyway in case somebody wants another picture of the bird. --W0lfie 14:29, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Carduelis tristis dorsal markings.jpg

here you go. I cropped out the birdhouse that filled up the rest of the photo (original 2560x1920) --W0lfie 18:51, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Divided Pedal[edit]

Re: Split Pedal. I know of two organs in England that have the divided pedal, I imagine there are more, but I can only be certain of Gloucester Cathedral and the Father Wills at Truro Cathedral. The Gloucester Cathedral had the system added in the major overhaul/rebuild in 1999. David Briggs was the organist overseeing both rebuilds, so the device is a favourite of his, no doubt a useful improvisatory tool. Mdcollins1984 09:24, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Ripon Cathedral the system too on its nave console Mdcollins1984 09:27, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Stochastic matrix[edit]

You seem to have knowledge on how Stochastic matrix works. If you could please get back to me on the talk page of the article, that would be wonderful. Thanks. --Obsolete.fax (talk) 20:31, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Pipe organ FA nomination[edit]

Hello… I think Pipe organ is about ready for another FA nomination. I just completed a thorough copyedit, and I was wondering if there was anything else you'd like to change before we proceed to FAC? —Cor anglais 16 23:26, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

WP:PipeOrgan needs you![edit]

Hi everyone.

In case you haven't spotted it, Pipe organ is a featured article candidate. If any of you can lend a hand to address the concerns, the WikiProject PipeOrgan would be indebted to you. The article itself is in pretty good shape, there are some concerns about the referencing at the moment, so if you have any reliable sources that may be useful, please have a look at the article.

Many thanks, –MDCollins (talk) 00:52, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Reviving WikiProject PipeOrgan[edit]

Hello, W0lfie! I'm attempting to revive Wikipedia:WikiProject PipeOrgan. As you are a member of the project I hope you would like to participate in its revival if you have time. Kind regards, Danmuz (talk) 11:30, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks back![edit]

I drop by once a month or so and very much appreciated your comment.

The Media Viewer discussion is one of the most painful and saddening that I can recall, and I've been an editor (under various logins as jobs/lifestyles have changed) for most of WP's history. To watch WMF simply archive and ignore a strong, consistent, rational, well-reasoned and well-explained consensus in favour of a Trust-Me-I'm-a-Doctor approach is much like finding out that The Great And Powerful Oz is nothing more than a carnival huckster who couldn't steer his balloon. My first edits were in 2003. Main Page, WYSIWYG, English v English, There Is No Cabal (and it's sudden reversal), even the Jesus Wars and The Great Censorship Campaign -- after a long list of little wars that made me laugh, cry or rant, this is the first that made me seriously doubt the viability of Wiki's core "consensus development" model. We have lost incredible editors each time and I always wondered, "Can't they SEE the bigger picture? Have they forgotten what we're building here?"

Interesting... now that I think of it, I have not made a single edit in several months, not even to correct grammar and spelling errors that I spot (and I'm an unrelenting grammar freak). Wikipedia was (and I'm using the past tense deliberately) the great work of our age, akin to the volunteer-driven OED at the close of the 19th century or the convergence of plate tectonics, meteorology and palaeontology a few decades later -- largely the work of amateurs and dilettantes but destined to change our understanding of our world. Perhaps this is how such efforts always die; those who create are marginalised so "real professionals" can get on with the important work without interference. Maybe those editors of old DID see the bigger picture and, rather late in the day, the penny has finally dropped for me. An interesting thought, and I sincerely hope I'm wrong.Kevin.159.53 (talk) 15:32, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
