WikiProject Malware[edit]

Hello DanielPharos,

I'm just wondering .. as I'm a new member to the project, what ever happened to WP:Malware? It seems, 'dead' in some sort of sense. Malware is one of the only topics I specialize in, and I'd like to assist with getting it off the ground if possible? I'm really on a constricted schedule and seeing as you made so many posts there .. I was wondering if you or some other editor could assist me?

I thank you for your time.

Kind Regards, blurpeace (talk - contributions) 00:53, 1 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Hiya Daniel,

I think I might have made my message come on the wrong way. I was asking for assistance with the general production of the upgrade to the WikiProject, not for mentoring. I know how WP works. :)

Check the WP:MALW talk page for further information on my current work.

Thank you for your time.

Kind Regards, blurpeace (talk - contributions) 23:28, 2 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, I completely agree. Malware is a wide range of information .. and it is a devoted to field with Information Security. Leaving it out would be taking 1/4 out of the puzzle of security.
I've agreed with the other recommendation given for making it a task force. Hopefully this will turn out well .. I'm more than sure this will help centralize things between the two projects and make the overall system a lot easier for all of us. Kind Regards, blurpeace (talk - contributions) 21:42, 3 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

WP:CSEC[edit]

DanielPharos! Thank You for your assistance with WikiProject Malware! To better serve Wikipedia, this project has been closed.

David Brumley[edit]

Dan, does this dude really merit an article? Is he encyclopedic or just up and coming? I will accept your verdict, but if you agree he stays, they have to make the article look a little more presentable. Regards, the Botendaddy (talk) 04:23, 13 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

I'd say yes, he's notable. His papers are pretty famous: [1] I even heard of this particular one through the Security Now! podcast, I think. Also, most of the articles on the first few pages on Google [2] are either written by him, or are about something he wrote. I would think that qualifies. (Especially as long as his work doesn't have any articles of its own.) --DanielPharos (talk) 10:44, 13 October 2009 (UTC)[reply]

One final word on it. It still reads like a resume and does not look like an even moderate-quality Wikipedia article. That would tend to detract from the value of the article. Take a look at the page on Bletchley Park cryptographer Arthur Levenson to compare and you'll see what I mean.

Gameguard[edit]

Forums are not reliable sources no. And even if those reports were "current" you haven't provided any sources for the rest of the unsourced text. The threshold for inclusion is verifiability not truth, and 4 year old bug reports that haven't been updated to reflect any current versions of the software don't support that.--Crossmr (talk) 15:49, 20 December 2009 (UTC)[reply]

KDE-Gnome interoperablitity[edit]

You can always install KDE application on Gnome and the other way and it'll pull all required components automatically. It is also possible to exchange the entire desktop environment from Gnome to KDE or to have both, like here. Of course, such massive changes require a bit of configuration to make applications consistent, but this is usually nothing more than a checkbox or maybe a drop-down list. I personally usually spend much more time exploring the options. If you want more specific information, there is vast amount of information in ubuntuforums.org and linuxquestions.org.1exec1 (talk) 18:58, 8 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Ah, awesome, I never knew that! Thanks. So that means on the GUI side, there isn't (necessarily) a 'platform-split'. Although Linux distributions lacking any GUI at all would still be a problem. (Also, see reply below.) --DanielPharos (talk) 00:08, 13 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Considering compilation, if your applications involve playing with low level stuff or so, it's hard to maintain compatibility for such a long timeframe as decade. But it's possible. All what's needed is to use available options smartly. For example, always use dynamic linking. And never use low level interfaces directly, use at least one dynamic library implementing access to them (even if all what it does is forwarding). Here's the reason why: when the low level interface changes, you can adapt only the library without recompiling the application. Similarly, you don't have recompile libraries if something deep in the system changes. Generalizing, it's possible to achieve perfect compatibility this way. The only problem is that not every one uses available options smartly. That's why I was so strongly defending my opinion regarding this subject back at the talk page.1exec1 (talk) 18:58, 8 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]

hmmm, sounds like it is complicated... with enough technical "smartness" you can achieve compatiblity with every kind of system. a good platform with respect to compatiblity is one were the programmers don't need to be too smart to achieve comaptiblity (inter-, downward and forward), because it is provided by the platform itself (e.g. by following (defacto)standards). and therefore these programmers can focus their effort on the application itselfShaddam (talk) 23:25, 11 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
So the 'definition' of platform is troubled. I guess 'dependancies' IS better. On Windows, you can depend on DirectX 10, .NET 3.5, win32 or even the specific way Windows 9x handles drivers, and on the Linux side Gnome, KDE, etc. So to call the various versions of Windows a single platform is questionable; the same goes for Linux. It really depends on what your program actually needs; whether various versions are 'one platform' depends on your point of view, on your program's needs.
In conclusion: When you say Windows is a single platform, you're implicitly assuming a sole dependance on win32, and not .NET, DirectX, ... So when you DO make this distinction on the Linux side of the argument, it's unfair. One could only apply the 'platform'-term from an purely architectural point of view, but that has little to do with actually running applications on said platform.
I guess the only big difference is in the common denominator on these 'platforms': Windows has win32 (which is graphical), while Linux has POSIX (which is non-graphical). Calling that a "big win for Windows" in anything other than a sarcastic way, is silly to say the least. --DanielPharos (talk) 00:08, 13 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
I completely agree with that. 1exec1 (talk) 17:40, 14 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
hm, i agree the concept 'platform' was not clearly defined. but from intuitive understanding a good 'platform' is fitting all potential interpretations: as archtitecture, for running applications, as complete set (to contemporary standards) of functionallity and interfaces to the access the power of hardware and OS (for users and developers), as perceived stable (over time) 'base' for software. I think a good platform must fulfill all this. POSIX for linux is failing because it is incomplete (graphical, audio, input etc). LSB neither, it fails as platform for running software because the distribuitons differing still to much, various installation systems, and even when the same, installation packages are still required to be adapted and and hand-fitted for every specific distribution. but you are right i had win32 in mind, with directX as extension because it is downward compatible from 11 down to the very beginnings. speaking about directx as perceived platform "extension", this sure true until dx10 when, sadly, support for political reason was dropped from MS for 'legacy' Windows variants. directx 9.1c is available from win98 until windows 7 spanning a range of more then 10 years with hardware and software what is the reason why still many games coming in directx9 versions. i think this is forming base which can be truly called a platform. and yes, to have an stable base (for developers and users) which allows to access and utilize a modern PC systems COMPLETE power (audio, video, grpahic (3d! after 10years still a pain in linux), various input devices, GUI, network) is "big win for that system". Shaddam (talk) 16:49, 16 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
I object to your "for political reason" in relation to DirectX 10. It probably did play a (not insignificant) role, but it's not the major reason. Windows XP support was already ment to be dropped by the time DirectX 10 was introduced, and you say the entire Windows XP (and/or lower) driver model would have to be revised? Surely you're joking! Nvidia didn't even produce decent Vista drivers until a year after its release; do you think they would then spent even more time making this Windows XP++ driver too? It just doesn't make any sense for Microsoft to put in the effort of back-porting the Vista driver model to XP. (Also, they usually don't backport major features of the new OS: they're NEW major features for a reason!) I can't run XP drivers on Windows 98, but you don't hear me complaining. DirectX 10 relies on the new driver model to work; features that can't be easily back-ported: see DirectX 9 Ex (no link :| ).
Yes, that's exactly what I was aiming for. From an intuitive point of view, Windows (specifically, Win32) seems to be much closer to what a 'platform' should be than 'all of' Linux. That's why I'm asking if anybody has a decent defitinion of the word, so this can be made clear/can be settled, and out of personal curiosity. A platform seems wider/broader than a framework (which is what SDL, DirectX, WinSock etc are), but a clear workable definition of the word seems to be missing.
I like your "fitting all potential interpretations", but I'm wondering if even Win32 really does that. I mean, you already explicitly included DirectX. What about WinSock? It's (strictly speaking) not part of Win32. Or the text-to-speach functionality Windows has? You'd have to select "Windows" itself as the platform (maybe limiting it to desktop/server editions?). But then again, wouldn't Linux fit that description as well? Or certain distributions (like: Debian)? MS-DOS was considered a platform in its time: is it still one, or is "platform-ness" somehow time-dependant?
I'm actually starting to wonder if "platform" can't simply be defined as a multi-purpose framework? Something along the lines of: "A platform is an all-round framework, that allows the programmer/user to create a complete program solely depending on said framework." where "complete program" means "that's able to utilise most if not all of the available (hardware) features." --DanielPharos (talk) 21:49, 16 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Red Link Recovery[edit]

Hello. As a Dutch-speaking WikiGnome, I'd like to solicit your help in testing a new tool. For a few years now, the Red Link Recovery Project has been using the Red Link Recovery Live tool to track down and fix unnecessarily red links in articles. Recently, the tool has been expanded to work on non-English Wikipedias. A small set of suggested fixes for red-links on the Dutch-language Wikipedia have been prepared and I'm hoping to interest some Dutch-language speakers (such as yourself) to work through them.

If you are interested, please visit http://toolserver.org/~tb/RLRL/quick.php?lang=nl. Each time you refresh the page you'll be presented with three new suggested fixes. I'll be happy to answer any questions on the tools talk page. - TB (talk) 21:21, 20 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Elastic Reality[edit]

Hi, you've tagged the article Avid Elastic Reality for "promotional rubbish detected". Just to add some background, this is an oscar-winning software from the 1990s that was discontinued 12 years ago, so all the pictures are actually historical documents as opposed to promotional crap or spam. It's history on the level of the Mona Lisa, for sure, but history none the less.

Proposed deletion of Qoole[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Qoole has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article about a level editor for Quake. Of the two references supplied, one is inaccessible without paying a fee, so cannot be evaluated. The other is an academic paper that used Qoole, but only because it was the "cheapest of many Quake editors" - it almost goes out of its way to describe the editor as non-notable. I don't see (yet?) the breadth and depth of coverage needed to show that Qoole is notable.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Wikipedia:WikiProject Computer Security[edit]

Dear DanielPharos,

I herewith acknowledge that I have read your addition to my Talk page of 29 August 2012.

I plan to answer your writing with respect to content as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Maarten 1963 (talk) 19:12, 31 August 2012 (UTC).[reply]


Dear DanielPharos,

In your message of 29 August 2012, you ask me two questions:

  1. Can you refer me to the discussion where consensus was achieved for the recent changes that you made to the Wikipedia:WikiProject Computer Security‎ page?
  2. Can you refer me to the rule of the Wikipedia that states that the pages of a WikiProject should be stripped of all fancy stuff?

I cannot refer you to a discussion that lead to consensus about my renovation of the WikiProject Computer Security‎ page on 29 August 2012. However, I did not need to have found any consensus among editors to have the right to edit the page. Wikipedia encourages editors to be bold, and also briefly discusses the possibility of being very bold. Wikipedia states that pages should reflect consensus among editors, but does not state that consensus should be attained before edits can be made. Instead, it presents a model of how consensus can be obtained when an edit is not agreed to by other editors. Furthermore, Wikipedia states that nobody owns a page. This means that nobody can dictate the contents of a page in relation to other editors. Consequently, objecting to an edit on the sole ground that the edit is not based on consensus is not acceptable.

I cannot refer you to the rule of the Wikipedia that states that the pages of a WikiProject should be stripped of all fancy stuff. As far as I know, the rule does not exist. However, editors are not required to retain any fancy stuff on the pages of a WikiProject.

I can refer you to Wikipedia:Be bold, Wikipedia:Editing policy, Wikipedia:Consensus, Wikipedia:BOLD, revert, discuss cycle, and Wikipedia:Ownership of articles.

Yours sincerely,

Re: Valve Hammer editor assessment[edit]

Hello,

Here is what I considered:

  • Multiple sections of content, with a properly defined structure
  • 1696 bytes of readable prose (that's without bulleted prose items), which would have been enough to e.g. nominate it for WP:DYK (where stubs are not accepted)
  • Infobox with a screenshot
  • At least some refs to "establish verifiability". What this means - as I understand it - is that it should be easy to verify that the topic actually exists, i.e. that the article is not a hoax ("No Start-Class article should be in any danger of being speedily deleted.")
  • No cleanup tags or obvious major problems

While I'm not really familiar with the subject, my impression was that the "Files and compiling" section was not strictly speaking off topic. All in all, I felt the article went beyond "a very basic description of the topic". Still, I'd see no problem whatsoever if you disagreed and reassessed the article back to stub, but in that case I'd advise adding appropriate cleanup tags.

SuperMemo: Change Delphi infobox link[edit]

Hi Daniel,

I noticed you changed the Delphi link in SuperMemo inforbox (viz). I would like to ask for your reasoning since the new link redirects to a canonical page of the old link i.e. Delphi (programming language) -> Delphi (software).

Many thanks! Kubis (talk) 02:19, 27 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Kubo2: It's to make things consistent. The "programming language" entry of the infobox should mention the programming language, not the IDE. Even though right now the programming language page redirects to the software page, it didn't used to: [3] So if the programming language page in the future is changed to redirect elsewhere, or become its own article, this link will already be correct. --DanielPharos (talk) 16:35, 27 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
