Yes, it is pathetically true — I managed to exceed the wiki limits with my archive and page and it is now split into pieces. These are the older comments.

2010-10-27 12:50:46   I'm probably jumping the gun in asking this, but what's with the Wednesday, October 27, 2010 linkies up there? —TomGarberson

2010-10-27 13:00:05   Haha gotcha... when you put it that way, I agree, it's a hilarious visual. —TomGarberson

2010-10-28 09:26:07   Haha very fair guess... but that one wasn't me. —TomGarberson

2010-10-28 11:15:58   I don't know her, it just looked at first glance like someone was removing information for no particularly good reason (obviously that wasn't the case). She does appear to have her contact info on the facebook page, which is linked, but I'm trying to stick to a policy of "only one revert per page per incident", so I'll leave it up to others to decide if there's some form of that sentence that they feel is appropriate. —JoePomidor

2010-10-30 15:49:18   Thanks for catching the tag on the allegre page. I just remembered that it was still there. —TomGarberson

2010-10-30 22:10:12   Yes! Thanks. —DonShor

2010-11-03 12:28:43   I will concur with Fruit/Veg/Talk paragraph deletion as "opening up;" I just wish the higher-ups might allow more than 1/2 hour per week for the wiki-side of things. There's been significant community-thinking about it over the past week and the limited response was disappointing. —JudithTruman

2010-11-03 12:50:37   Wok hay, in kitchen vocabulary, is the "breath of the wok," the additional smokey flavor you get when the wok is HOT and the steam from the moist foods is able to evaporate readily, so it is cooked as stir-FRY rather than stir-simmer. In science terms, it's probably hydrocarbon vaporization —the cooking oils and fats are at their smoke point—plus carbohydrate charring. For chow fun, it can make the difference between stuck-together noodles and seasoned separated noodles. and reveal that "chow" refers to frying, and "ho fun" are the wide flat rice noodles. —JudithTruman

2010-11-03 21:04:22   Thanks, it's what our logo actually looks like. —Davidlm

2010-11-05 10:39:11   It is time for William Lewis to be banned from Davis Wiki. —DonShor

2010-11-05 20:19:49   Thanks for fixing up the AggieTV page for me, it looks great! And I added that it does receive funds. —SaherR

2010-11-05 21:36:56   How are you and Sarah liking Nashville by now? I only spent a weekend there, and most of that was academically oriented, but it seemed like a really amazing city. —TomGarberson

2010-11-09 14:15:13   Right, that's why I don't want my reply to Adobe Management to be moved to the talk page. The talks seem much less relevant. Han has already agreed to that. I have not agreed to deleting my reply to Adobe Management though. —anonpincher

2010-11-09 14:16:46   **PLEASE** ban anonpincher and end this misery. —PeterBoulay

2010-11-09 14:30:20   Sorry to upset you JW....anon has been allowed to go to far and someone had to stand up for the multiple people who agree with my opinion. You basically did exactly what I wanted to happen. Thanks —PeterBoulay

2010-11-09 14:36:42   Alright, sounds good Jabber. Seems like Peter is happy, which is odd since the material he was squabbling over is still there. But hey it's good to see he's happy now. —anonpincher

  • Don't speak for me,'s locked-I have no choice. pb
  • You just said that Jabber did exactly what you wanted to happen. Are you saying you're unhappy now with something? ap

2010-11-09 15:09:42   I don't follow man. Whatever it was, it certainly wasn't on purpose. It's probably because I lack the Wiki know how...I think Tom may have tried to tell me how to do a better job of that, and I haven't gotten around to reading it fully, but it's not like I'm doing that to hide anything. —anonpincher

2010-11-09 16:58:47   Yea I just don't agree that it would appeal to more people necessarily. It would satisfy detractors, but we don't know who these detractors are, or what their interests are, so who are we really satisfying? —anonpincher

What do you mean by "we don't know who these detractors are"? Every single person who has chimed in on the issue has agreed that the comment holds virtually no value as-is. The only disagreement is whether that's reason to remove it. We know that the "detractors" who think details would give your comment value include myself, Peter Boulay, Joe Pomidor, William Lewis, Kemble Pope, Brett Hall, and Covert Professor (maybe others, not going to look carefully). Of those, Covert Professor is the only one whose actual identity we don't know, and (s)he has done a lot to establish identity here. —TomGarberson

2010-11-09 17:14:30   That's fine, but really, it's hard to collaboratively edit my opinion if it means diluting it in order to satisfy certain parties. I mean basically you get one faction that says get rid of the dang thing, and are only finding ways to get rid of it entirely. If you want to focus on adding one or two things under my comments to support or detract from the comment then that's fine. As Covertprofessor has stated, I undermine my own credibility by not wanting to change the language if it's as terrible as these collaborators say. The comment would simply be passed over if it wasn't helpful. What's happening here is akin to trying to shut the entire comment down dismissing it completely, trying to control me. I just don't agree. I don't know what you want me to add, but just add it all underneath if need be. I don't think the talks have been very helpful at all except to try and interpret the comments section and what it should have based on their own beliefs. —anonpincher

2010-11-09 17:47:30   I have included specifics, but not necessarily detailed. Intense detail is not necessary since I don't want this to turn into a let's find out who he is journey. —anonpincher

2010-11-09 18:12:07   Yea I basically cited things that I know they've done to so many other people including to me. I didn't want to list any problem that was only specific to me. It's truly an understated negative review. —anonpincher

2010-11-09 21:26:29   no worries, i'm just concerned that my valid point got lost in all of that crazy talk. —KemblePope

2010-11-10 09:22:04   No worries! I'll probably take another stab at it today. I actually didn't know it was an official form of math though. Oh well! Thank god I taught myself the right way to do it the first time I guess. Haha! —RickJames

2010-11-10 09:24:01   By the way, I like the direction it's going so far! —RickJames

2010-11-10 22:19:49   What about a page for "change of ownership"? It's not a new business that would be listed, but one with new ownership. For example consider the car wash at 5/L Streets. It didn't used to have a name. It sold, was remodeled. Assuming that it still doesn't have a name (Maybe it does.) and was just remodeled. It could be listed as having new ownership; maybe be listed as being remodeled. —BruceHansen

2010-11-19 10:46:14   Please see Current Businesses - Discussion. Thanks. —BruceHansen

2010-11-20 15:01:00   Christianity is a religion, not a family of religions. Furthermore, IDNE's representation of different Christian sects not thinking that other Christian sects are Christian is misleading. It's a small phenomena confined to a handful of groups. Please do not restore any version that makes these errors. —WilliamLewis

2010-11-22 02:11:15   RE: Your recent comment -It's not something I feel strongly about, but if you look at the edit pages you see one name... so it just felt that a sort of disclaimer was warranted in that case so as not to mislead any readers. But again, on the scale of things it's not something worth fussing over so I put in my 2 cents, and I'm done with that issue. —SteveDavison

2010-11-28 18:22:14   Please I don't know what this one entry means to you, but it means a lot for my friend who is daughter of the deceased. And she would prefer for the links not to be there. This wiki back and forth is really not interesting for me; but I'm helping a friend who would like a little control over the misinformation that was written about her father. Let her have this for her piece of mind. —GeorgiaMiner

2010-11-30 16:04:05   I went out yesterday morning and took the picture JUST for the wiki page! —DonShor

2010-12-02 13:13:08   I'm trying to have fun with it. =) *packs a few more snowballs* —WilliamLewis

2010-12-02 13:20:44   Thank you might want to consider banning AP as he's now going to b*tch that his comments have been removed and cause an edit war there —PeteBPeterBoulay

2010-12-02 13:34:25   Hyper-aggressive? Nice insult JW...cmon. You have someone who consistently picks fights with people and reverts others edits without any care to what anyone says. People repeatedly and I mean *repeatedly* try to work with him to no avail. Sure—keep him on—it's clearly obvious to me (and others) he's not going to try to work with anyone here reasonably. —PeterBoulay

2010-12-02 14:05:47   I don't think that it's nit-picking. On many occasions, ap has said, "Don't get on their bad side or they will kill you." —KemblePope

2010-12-02 23:20:08   I just wanted to let you know that I think you are an awesome dude. Fair and gracious. King of Davis in exile as far as I see it. :) —ScottMeehleib

2010-12-06 10:05:13   Thanks and sorry for not renaming the right page at that time. —BruceHansen

2010-12-07 17:15:20   Heh... yes, I thought it might be an edit clobber, but I wasn't sure. Glad you like the [sic]. —CovertProfessor

2010-12-07 17:25:26   I am glad to hear that. Thanks for so often being willing to be the one who smooths things over. —CovertProfessor

2010-12-07 17:30:58   Yep, good point. Much better to find someone to work with than to go the locking route, which is a best an imperfect solution, at worst no solution at all. —CovertProfessor

2010-12-08 08:30:09   is the wiki on fire?!? ... or it's wiki birthday. How many years now? (I don't know where the info is) —ChristyMarsden

2010-12-08 09:09:44   Do you want "Webmaster" to stand as a username? I wouldn't think that would be a good idea. —CovertProfessor

2010-12-08 12:56:02   Ah, ok — that makes sense. I was also thinking of listing it under Wiki Community/Organizational accounts/List, but perhaps that doesn't make sense if it's a one shot deal. —CovertProfessor

2010-12-08 14:07:23   ... I feel so ridiculous right now, haha! OF COURSE the wiki isn't on fire. How ignorant of me :(

Thanks for the info :D —ChristyMarsden

2010-12-08 14:21:10   I was actually planning to revert the resizing and link the version so people could look at it and decide. Feel free to do so, or go ahead and bump the B&B icon on down like you had it. Sorry about the cross-editing —TomGarberson

2010-12-08 17:53:48   edit collisions are great

what is that strawberry jam barcode for? —StevenDaubert

2010-12-08 19:09:13   That kind of day, for some reason. —CovertProfessor

2010-12-10 17:22:35   Hey, just saying thanks for the outstanding intro to the community! —danielchoi

2010-12-11 00:05:56   Your wish is my command, sir! (Seems like I owe you a few). —CovertProfessor

2010-12-11 09:46:14   Oh, I agree completely. Not only was it something you asked for, it was also the right thing to do. I wouldn't have done it otherwise. —CovertProfessor

2010-12-11 13:17:21   Very nice! I like them all. —TomGarberson

2010-12-13 10:20:50   Thanks, JW. Regarding the word "services" following the name of businesses, that wouldn't apply, would it, where the business is selling supplies, so wouldn't the "services" category fall under, for example. "B2B"? The "services" phrase could redirect to the word or words without the "service". —BruceHansen

2010-12-15 15:56:54   Haha that's a great idea! I bet we would get a lot of love from the Vampire Weekend crowd. —JoePomidor

2010-12-18 13:25:54   JW-I really think Elizabeth's Pet Sitting needs to be reworked. It's obvious she's gone beyond the just-having-a-page-on-the-wiki. She really is using it specifically for advertising and all the pics are out-of-hand IMHO. —PeterBoulay

  • That was already done on the 13th....Elizabeth's Pet Sitting/Talk —PeteB
  • Going to you because you had a lot of say on Luci's issues...and to me the graphical content on Elizabeth way out-does Luci's. -PeteB

2010-12-19 13:09:25   I went over to Pet Sitters International and clicked "find a petsitter in your area"—it's on the top bar on the page on the right hand side. Searching for 95616 got half a dozen hits for petsitters in Davis/El Macero, most of whom are on the Wiki. I couldn't find Elizabeth in this way. Her claim may be valid, and I may have been too hasty there. Reading through petsitter wiki pages vs their own websites, I was struck by the tendency for Wiki to be selfwritten and sparse with a "CONTACT ME!!" flavor, where their homepages are rich and chatty and full of info—with linkbacks to Pet Sitters International, yes, but the overall tone is "here is everything about me and oh yeah, PSI" rather than "here's my degree! and PSI!" which in contrast seems forcefully bona fides-waving. As long as there's a group effort happening on one petsitting page, pushing some of the others up the "recent changes" list makes it seem like we're updating the category rather than attacking one. —JudithTruman

2010-12-20 22:33:07   There's a "you're instead of "your" on the locked real estate page.... —Angel.York

2010-12-21 20:31:23   Has anyone mentioned how abhorable the new line set-up between comments seems to appear... love ya man, but your page is a prime example of how distracting and convoluted the new line appearance makes a page seem. —Wes-P

2010-12-22 13:24:09   I'm not seeing anything different, but for some reason I never see any notices that I have a new message, not even that little one that used to pop up next to my username at the top of the page. I do have an adblocker running (adblock plus in firefox), so that may be why it doesn't show. —JoePomidor

2010-12-22 19:39:04   Perhaps it is just a difference between the Firefox appearance (which I used previously) and the Internet Explorer (which I am currently using after upgrading my system) I will have to check out Firefox to see if this is the case. My Main beef is with the Messages though.. the bar takes up over half of the DavisWiki title bar and does redirect (at least it redirects me) to the wikispot and then has a link saying "You can find Wes-P on DavisWiki." which redirects back to our local wiki... it's annoying as heck. —Wes-P

2010-12-23 08:26:12   Can you leave a comment on my page? I haven't actually seen the new markup in action yet. —CovertProfessor

2010-12-24 16:23:42   Merry Christmas —Wes-P

2010-12-26 20:05:19   I'm perplexed with your comment to me. To clarify, perhaps, there are 3 links: user name, settings and logout. The over link banner has only a link to the messages page, right? —BruceHansen

2010-12-26 21:03:15   In summary, we're agreed. To explain, firstly, because I didn't look closely enough when I clicked on the occasional Messages banner to make an appearance, I referred to it as a messages page instead of the InterWiki Links page. I was narrowly focused on getting to my message. Secondly, I'll take your word that the previous messages link was the same. (Just offhand I don't know how to check it out now.) Early on I started clicking on my user link. Speaking of InterWiki Links, where are the Wiki Leaks? —BruceHansen

2010-12-26 23:04:53   Guess it is the same. If you look at my comments in the Talk section you can see my posts. I have always just clicked my name when I had new messages, hence a bit of the confusion. The overpowering top bar, however has to go. I wouldn't mind a different message alert, just not a bar that literally takes up the entire top portion of the Wiki (as can be seen in the images I posted). I appreciate the hard work you are putting into this though. If I could do it, I would help, but I am a programming noob. sigh —Wes-P

2010-12-26 23:10:05   Again, glad to help. I must admit that I was stubbornly holding onto the view that the link had changed (how, I didn't know) until you posted that FAQ item from 2008. Nothing like incontrovertible evidence to make one change one's mind. :-) So, once I knew that the link hadn't changed, I was forced to come up with an alternative explanation because I was pretty darn sure that I hadn't clicking through to my interwiki bookmarks! And then when I saw the location of the old flag on wikispot, it clicked. —CovertProfessor

2010-12-30 15:51:02   Sure, glad to help. And thank you for coming up with a way that we can handle other lawyers' pages. I like it. I also finally took a look at that PDF, and I am convinced more than ever that something should be on the page. Unless that lawyer fell into a hole or a coma for two months, there seems to be no excuse for what happened. —CovertProfessor

  • I have a feeling this PDF image will be quashed on the Wiki soon. Can't help but wonder what legal ramifications there may be for the wiki if this lazy (read: heartless) attorney feels it is hurting his "business". — Wes-P

2010-12-30 16:26:41   On the right, is that two monitors on a stand? At first I thought it was an ultrawidescreen, and was trying to figure out the size. I love my current work set up too :D I've got a 23" wide and a 20" square that I tend to rotate. Love my monitors, though I wish I had a 27". —EdWins

2010-12-31 05:51:17   The Amtrak page seems pretty rediculous to me now. On the one hand, William puts up a phone number that Amtrak doesn't want published for any Tom, Dick or Harry to call. On the other hand, you removed the Wikipedia train link, that might interest some people. I'd venture to say that most people don't know everything in the article. So while it's true, as you stated, that most people know what a train is, it is roughly equivalent to say that most people know what Amtrak is and so, the Amtrak page should be removed also. It wouldn't make much sense to restrict info about Amtrak (unless Amtrak asks for a restriction) by deleting the page and it doesn't make much sense to not let a person have the option of having a link to get more information about trains. Besides, the wiki links are so neat. —BruceHansen

2010-12-31 08:54:37   That's really cool! When I was at CVEC in '05/06, one of the lab groups had dual 24ers - at the time I was amazed because it seemed pretty rare for a lot of people to dual-screen, much less have them that big (in 05/06). I would looooove a triple monitor setup, by just adding a 27" to be my center display. I do a lot of microscopy, and recently bioinformatics, on an actual workstation-class computer, and dual-screening is a neccessity. I need to spread things over big displays and need screenspace so that I avoid scrolling and zooming out. Interestingly, I tend to prefer the 20" square monitor over the 23" widescreen. Microscopy images tend to be squares, so the widescreen's lack of height becomes an issue. Also, a standard monitor rotated vertically is still good at reading papers/pdfs, but feels less extreme than when a widescreen does it, mainly because I can't get used to it and don't have the patience to try. —EdWins

2010-12-31 09:02:12   Also, this was from years ago and done quickly (didn't tilt images in photoshop to make it perfect). Coworker got a new monitor that he couldn't set up til the afternoon, so I borrowed it for a few hours. "pic link". I think it was a 22" next to a 17" square. (At the time, I had 2x17"). Boredom and procrastination! —EdWins

2011-01-01 01:12:39   Just to head off anybody: no, I did not miscalculate the time in putting up the logo. I just happened to put it up close to exactly an hour late. I was moving a ton of stuff in our barn because the window broke and there is a wind storm with bursts of rain. Bleah. Light as the Nashville snow and weather has been, I miss either the valley fog and northern California winters or the crystal skies and predictable showers of a South Florida winter. NorCal's late summer heat and dry grass beats hurricane season for the win. —JabberWokky

  • Geez, would people really complain that you weren't up to change the logo at 2 AM your time, on the dot? We're a pretty sorry lot if so. Sorry to hear about your window. —CovertProfessor

2011-01-01 16:40:50   Happy New Year! Hope it is filled with wonderful and amazing things both personal and professional. —Wes-P

2011-01-02 06:14:50   Okay, thanks for the info. —Wes-P

2011-01-02 07:14:35   I now pronounce you to be the first true editing addict of 2011... —Wes-P

2011-01-02 07:16:59   Have you seen the Legal Services/Talk page yet. Your input there would be nice. —Wes-P

2011-01-02 10:36:20   Wow, new streamlined page with a pathfinder! Very cool. Thanks for doing all of those calbar links. —CovertProfessor

2011-01-11 19:13:02   Thx for the kudo on The Ramble Apartments. —PeterBoulay

2011-01-12 10:29:58   Haha that photo is a great idea, unfortunately the first time I could get out there between work and other plans is Sunday. Oh, and I'd need to buy a camera. —JoePomidor

2011-01-12 13:06:31   You're mentioned in my replies to WilliamLewis and EdWins. 39 years ago I met in Oklahoma an Arab-American translator of the Rubaiyat who had met Mark Twain. —BruceHansen

2011-01-18 11:07:22   But fools seldom differ from this case. —hankim

2011-01-19 20:05:48   Thanks bro... I'm sure I'll figure it all out someday :) —DylanSchaefer

2011-01-20 12:40:00   Hahaha... yeah, I thought I remembered it being Renter's, but a little googling indicated otherwise. —TomGarberson

2011-01-20 19:14:10   Please correct my errors then....there was so much going on that I obviously got confused. —PeterBoulay

2011-01-20 19:40:04   Jabs-I think I repaired my error. Sorry-was just trying to stop the chaos. —PeterBoulay

2011-01-21 12:31:35's just the flu but we can't fly with her feeling like this. It's not worth it. No worries. —PeterBoulay

2011-01-21 13:27:39   One Yoga Religious and Spiritual Organization that's been in and through Davis is Ananda Marga. There must be others as well. —BruceHansen

2011-01-22 16:31:33   Thank you! And I totally understand why you deleted the yoga category earlier when it didn't have any relevant details about Davis. —ScottMeehleib

2011-01-25 16:06:03   Thanks for the flower. —PeterBoulay

2011-01-25 19:29:48   Jab—with the way William has acted towards me (and others) in the past, what I said didn't even approach nasty. —PeterBoulay

2011-01-30 20:55:35   check out the show "Better off Ted" season 1 episode 12. It is on netflix streaming, it is a Jaberwocky themed episode. —DagonJones

2011-01-31 03:01:14   Yo Jabberwock! thanx for the dots! _Chibi

2011-01-31 11:04:47   yeah, you got the episode right. Im glad you saw that one, of course I thought of you when I first saw it. —DagonJones

2011-01-31 14:52:31   Thanks for the link! Looks interesting, although frankly I'm skeptical that any of the courts would take much interest in anything that isn't developed by some court system. How cool would it be if they did, though? —TomGarberson

2011-01-31 15:30:45   Ok, good. We'll see how it goes. —CovertProfessor

2011-02-01 17:01:33   Haha yeah I wouldnt have caught it either except for hankim's edit doing basically the same thing somewhere else on the page. —JoePomidor

2011-02-03 04:13:28   Hows the Racemosa development going? —jonpatterns

2011-02-03 05:31:49   Good stuff, have you ever tried editing a table on IE8? it gives me 'error on page' in the status bar - and I can't edit the table. Don't worry IE isn't my default browser ; -) —jonpatterns

2011-02-03 07:47:12   Haha good call on making that a bit bigger :) —TomGarberson

2011-02-03 07:56:02   By the way, I've got an ongoing problem with the message notification. It's not showing up on my account, and hasn't for at least a week now. I've tried multiple browsers (Chrome, Firefox, and IE) and computers. Any ideas? —TomGarberson

  • If you remember from a month ago or so, it's *never* worked for me except once iirc (I saw it from the Wikispot when I used a non-logged in edit). -ES

2011-02-06 19:22:21   Hmm, not sure I buy that answer!!! You know what I mean?? —CovertProfessor

2011-02-09 15:27:02   JW-I haven't been able to access SyracuseWiki for 2 days now. Can you see what's up please? Thx —PeterBoulay

2011-02-09 20:55:11   at least someone gets it ¬_¬StevenDaubert

2011-02-09 21:30:20   Like the new background...nice! —PeterBoulay

2011-02-11 17:55:52   Thanks, but the redirect won't even show up when I type "plants" into the search. Maybe the parentheses messes it up? :( —ScottMeehleib

2011-02-16 12:12:08   Hey JW...request for help dealing with reneng cc'ed below-maybe a ban would be a reasonable consideration as he is publically attacking them again. He's obviously not going to stop—PeteB

2011-02-16 11:24:58 That Reneng guy is trolling again... Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks! —Richard —AllegreApartmentsPeterBoulay

2011-02-16 12:40:06   I guess I don't know how to do that and my way of asking for help is asking the more seasoned editors to do it for me. I personally don't feel comfortable going and banning others, but I'll go do it once I learn how. Thank you! —Richard —AllegreApartments

Richard—only Admins can ban people—why you and I are not-that's why I posted to JW. I think Reneng has gone far and beyond in showing that a ban on him would be reasonable and prudent. The final decision, however, is not mine. —PeteB

2011-02-16 14:24:54   I just felt like saying howdy, sir. Next time you are in Davis, I'd be quite honored to meet you. I'll booze ya up if you let me. —ScottMeehleib

2011-02-20 20:41:32   Hey man I strongly feel the I fix electronics thing should not be all caps. Its totally unfair to every other listing on the page. What to stop me from changing my name to "REAL COMPUTERS & FREE DIAGNOSTICS" and getting benifits from all caps? I mean .. if I simply need to make the name of my business be in all caps for this kind of thing to be ok then I will do exactly that ... Please change it back. —RealComputers

2011-02-20 20:44:30   Hey look .. if you go to the acutal website for "IFix Electronics" you will find that this "IFix Electronics" is how they made theor own name on their own website. I see no indication that "caps" is how their name is. Based on this I am going to change it to what is on their website. —RealComputers

2011-02-21 09:47:54   We all know that Brian just cares about minimizing any perceived advantage his competitors might have over him on the wiki. He does not care about the wiki itself. All caps in a list stands out, so that can't stand! But all caps on the business' page? It's not distracting people from Real Computers, so that's fine. —WilliamLewis

2011-02-22 19:32:18   Are you sure about that link on the JC Scandal page? After all, even the rumor-monger deleted it, presumably having second thoughts. When I first saw it, I even thought it might be a black hole candidate. —CovertProfessor

2011-02-22 19:59:20   That all makes sense to me. It just seemed to me that it could be a potentially harmful rumor about minors (but I am not sure about their ages). I also don't see that the events are puzzling without this information. One tamer story is simply that the girls were not, according to the coach, team players, and when the coach tried to talk to them about it, they dropped the f-word, etc., walked out of the meeting, and rest of the story ensues. As for why no one wants to talk about the reasons for the firing — the Vanguard hinted at one point that the coach may have been fired because the girls were of a minority race and when the mother complained to a person of the same race, the coach got canned. As I suggested, there are a lot of stories flying around. —CovertProfessor

2011-02-22 21:32:05   But that wasn't the talk page that we were editing... —CovertProfessor

2011-02-22 21:52:45   Hi, just saw your comments on my user page. I didnt notice that there were still caps on the "IFix" page. I will change them as you requested/mentioned, however I do so caustiously because WilliamLewis has set his sight on me again, coming out with fists blazing. I dont know if you read what he wrote in response to my comment on the talk page for IFix but I found it to be very rude and not at all a justified response to me comments. Still I will make the changes. To try and avoid an edit war I am going to quote your comments on my user page in the talk page for IFix, but if you would rather I do not please let me know or you can remove the text yourself. I dont want to quote you if you dont want to be quoted. —RealComputers

2011-02-22 23:26:29   love it!!!!!! —CovertProfessor

2011-02-25 08:43:35   You're aware of the new website. You might not be aware of what appeared to be an obscure place in the lower right corner of the front page in Wednesday's paper with the cryptic title of this article to announce it.

2011-02-27 08:10:45   Hiya Evan — I guess it is in the "eye of the beholder". I understand your perspective however.


2011-02-28 15:05:45   is that outage gonna take place today (the 28th)? —JoePomidor

2011-02-28 16:17:08   haha no problem i just happen to have very selective OCD. —JoePomidor

2011-02-28 17:25:15   Well done, sir. That sound you hear is me doffing my cap to you. —JoePomidor

2011-02-28 20:39:20   I don't see anything negative on Lauren Vaage Construction. Are you sure? —WilliamLewis

2011-03-01 20:46:22   So, Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards, if a page has been "DELETED", and the page name actually no longer exists (like if you write it as a link on a page it comes up with 'dash'-ed underlining, as though it has to yet be created), where do you find it? What 'titlebar'? what 'info' icon? — the whole thing is gone. —YCSifu

2011-03-01 20:51:51   I'm not at all sure that he's a Daniel or that he ever goes by Daniel. I've only ever seen his name written as Dan. —CovertProfessor

2011-03-01 21:06:40   If he signs with Dan, that seems definitive enough for me. What point is there to use "Daniel" if he himself never uses it? Plus, we have pages for "Sue" and "Joe" — so, why not Dan? —CovertProfessor

2011-03-01 22:02:34   Yes, Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards, I realized that. But then all those comments are just 'half'-conversations (like communications with no feedback, — remember how error prone computer printing used to be? — remember what solved that?), almost as bad as 'orphan' pages, ... sort of (not quite because of the link to your profile). But someone looking at my profile page, with interest in what my concerns are, would have to skip back and forth between our profiles to get the actual gist of our conversation, and I wanted to save them the inconvenience. Otherwise, why make our conversation visible at all to others? —YCSifu

2011-03-02 13:40:34   Re: BBD — Mediocre food and lots of it. I even found this to be true of the breakfasts, and it's just not that hard to make breakfast! So, in my opinion, you'd be better off breakfasting elsewhere, e.g., Delta of Venus. —CovertProfessor

2011-03-02 21:32:06   I agree! —CovertProfessor

2011-03-04 13:46:06   The story about the kids getting him a yardstick made me "Awww." —hankim

2011-03-07 18:14:15   You're cracking me up with all of your "talking". —Wes-P

2011-03-15 09:26:11   Does the PhebeEvania page seem a bit hinky to you or am I out of line thinking it seems like a scam to solicit funds for an overseas business more than a page that has anything to do with Davis or the DavisWiki community? —Wes-P

2011-03-16 02:58:27   Randomly just viewed the and was shocked to discover only 25 states have any kind of LocalWikis set up. I was thinking, since Davis is a conglomerate of students from around the nation, let alone the world, that it would be nice to have a local page here for students/residents to have easy access to the Wikispot with information on different states and cities with no wiki info that could use a helping hand from former residents... What do you think? Is this something that is already covered by the localwiki project or would it be too intrusive for the DavisWiki? —Wes-P

2011-03-17 14:49:57   whoa! that was speedy. Thanks! —jsbmeb

2011-03-17 15:18:20   Good point JW... thanks. —Wes-P

2011-03-18 18:01:45   I am so glad people like you exist who are able to bring smiles and chuckles, if not outright guffaws to people in general. —Wes-P

2011-03-19 15:17:32   I view you as being one of the most neutral and fair people out here on the DavisWiki, and as such hoped you might take the time to add your two cents to this new page: Wiki Community/AccusationsWes-P
