Fibonacci Number[edit]

Okay Zac, are you ready for this? I've reverted your changes on Fibonacci Number, not because they're false, or vandalism, but because of WP:VERIFY, and WP:MOS. I think there's a great opportunity to grow here for you, so that's why I'm doing it this way. If you have any questions, feel free to ask :) McKay 06:11, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of SAF-TE[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on SAF-TE requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. KurtRaschke (talk) 17:27, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Your edit to AT Attachment[edit]

Thank you! A minor point, but it's valuable to be complete in these things. Jeh (talk) 20:48, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Kickstart/Workbench[edit]

Doesnt OS4 still have separate Kickstart and Workbench? You load Kickstart files from the disk and then you can boot into Workbench or boot without WB. Xorxos (talk) 17:02, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, the section is titled 'ROM' and that part is different for AOS4. Without ever having seen OS4 in action, I presume it uses U-boot to boot the Kickstart image from HDD and then continues pretty similar to OS3- (Workbench scheme). The main difference is that Kickstart is booted and the firmware is for hardware initialization, POST and booting only. Found some details on [1] which seem to support this theory. Of course there's also OS4 for Classic, but that's (probably) a two staged startup process; either way, ROM Kickstart isn't used later on. Zac67 (talk) 17:31, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
On Amiga 1000 you had to load Kickstart separately from the disk. But I am ok with it as it is now. Xorxos (talk) 20:36, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
Good point. Early A3000s use a 1.4 beta as boot ROM - I guess the section needs an entire rewrite as there are many variants of the general scheme. Zac67 (talk) 21:24, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Serial ATA, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Isochronous and Power connector (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.

Akiko[edit]

Zello Zac67,

Not sure this is the right place for answering, anyway let s see if it works. I worked out the infos I added about Akiko by comparting the CD32 schematics with the A1200 schematics (http://www.amigawiki.org/doku.php?id=en:service:schematics). It seems to me that Akiko was C='s attempt to cut down the Amiga line production costs by integrating into a single VLSI chip all that logics that historically had been scattered around multilpe chips due to the limitations on the max number of gates per chip of the '80s era. However, I woinder if Akiko included all the functionalities of Gayle and teh CIAs or just a subset thereof. For example, did Akiko contained the logic to drive IDE discs and floppys ? I guess this would be an interesting topic that deserves further investigations. Attilio.fiandrotti 17:00, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

convert Data redundancy to disambig[edit]

Hello! Can you please clarify what was meant in this edit?

Here is how I'm seeing it:

What else left? As you can see, this list is not small and "Data redundancy" was already covered by most of the articles.

I suggest to convert Data redundancy to disabig because there so few statements and they are far better covered somewhere else IMO.

What do you think? Ushkin N (talk) 21:27, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

(Discussion move over to Talk:Data redundancy#Convert it to disambiguation please)

Fake paper?[edit]

Thanks for noticing the reference using what looks like a fake paper in the Ethernet article! Seems to me that there should be a worse word than plagiarism when the actual paper doesn't make sense together!

I am wondering if the whole college is fake, but decided to send a note to a dean about it.

I will tell you if I get any replies.

Gah4 (talk) 22:58, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

I guess the authors just wanted to write some "important" paper without actually having much knowledge on the topics and resorted to stealing from here. Melissa Highton must've been looking for sources by search engine and stumbled onto this – important to check the dates though! You're right, the paper doesn't make any sense – the process mentioned in the abstract isn't detailed at all, just some topics thrown together. --Zac67 (talk) 23:25, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
Reminds me of Sokal affair, but I suspect that it is closer to what you say. Is it possible to build a whole college on fake paper writing? I suspect that I might sometimes add references based on the title, but I don't think I have been quite this fooled. Gah4 (talk) 23:51, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Legend colors in PCIe pinout[edit]

Seems the colors of the input and output pins are swapped in the legend of the PCIe pin out diagram on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express. Input should be pink and output should be purple in the legend to match the pin names in the diagram. HSI pins are inputs that receive data and HSO pins are outputs that transmit data. The legend colors are backwards from the rest of the diagram. I figured it was just a typo and swapped them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.201.242.130 (talk) 23:08, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

The colors were correct, check the legend: the 'Input' and 'Output' directions are from the perspective of the add-in card while the descriptions' 'Receive' and 'Transmit' are from the perspective of the motherboard/chipset. This is somewhat counterintuitive and should be made smarter. --Zac67 (talk) 11:02, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Parallel SCSI[edit]

(Changing an article often results in a fast response, discussion pages rarely. ;-) ) Is there a source for this? (proprofs may have copied the info from WP.) The T10 documents are for "members only". I have never heard of such a setup, but I have seen devices that were supposed to have this, turning out to have two busses with a Y-adapter. Have there ever been devices for 2x50pin (IDC50 or HD50) split bus? If not, stating this would be useful. --Mopskatze (talk) 23:37, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

You're right, this should be sourced but I can't find anything. I've got the SPI-5 standard which doesn't seem to mention it. However, I've seen twin Narrow C50 cables for (very early) Wide SCSI in action (1995?) and (later on) twin Wide cabling for 32-bit SCSI offered by a vendor. The latter may have been a dual bus setup in reality but it did say "32-bit SCSI" (between server and storage enclosure in a set). Possibly, these setups were not by standard at all or only by an older SPI version but they did exist. --Zac67 (talk) 08:14, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
