Template:WelcomeRW Hi, and welcome PH.--Bob M 09:07, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Good to see ya mate. SuperJosh 10:06, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. It was worrying to have the site go down after being on holiday for two weeks. Phantom Hoover 11:38, 22 August 2009 (UTC) (No! My fancy sig!)
Shame it didn't go down when you were on holiday, then you wouldn't be missing anything if you didn't have net access anyway.
By the way, Proxima Centauri is trying to warm relations between LP and RW. You don't need to do anything, but I just thought I'd mention it to you as you have a userpage there. SuperJosh 11:45, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Read the user page. In my defence, I was irritated by the appalling quality of some of the articles there. Phantom Hoover 17:46, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
What'd you expect, it's all written by PC. Also, checking the history of your userpage there was amusing. As well as PC trying to be witty here Nx 17:57, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I love "Libereapedia". I choose to interpret that as meaning a wiki about Liberia. Phantom Hoover 18:27, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I see she's playing her usual power games on WikiIndex as well... Nx 19:03, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Let's start a WIGOPC to demonstrate just how ineligible she is to hold power. Phantom Hoover 19:19, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Awww, you got blocked first. And I had a threat and all. Oh well. Phantom Hoover 19:47, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Her justification: I knew removing content is a blockable offense because I edited your talk page where there was a warning. Also, editing through proxies is not fun. Nx 19:48, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Tried Tor (though it has a considerable bandwidth cost)? Phantom Hoover 20:02, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Not yet. Nx 20:05, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
You can get it through apt, I believe, though it may be necessary to add another source — I can't remember. Phantom Hoover 20:08, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Please inform miss Centauri that I have sent Mr. Stanton and Mr. Ernst emails regarding this situation. Also inform her that if I'm not unblocked by tomorrow morning 8:00 CET, RationalWiki will be down forever for her, and she will be more than welcome to read about Conservapedia or improve articles at Liberapedia meanwhile. Nx 20:18, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Blocking her from viewing RW is rather draconian, and I doubt Trent would allow it; it would also give more credence to her claims of cyberbullying. Phantom Hoover 20:26, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
Eh, you're right, I'm a bit pissed, so I overreacted a bit. But I will desysop her (she's incapable of using the tools) Nx 20:29, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Edit button!

I saw that stuff on your Liberapedia userpage ages ago and told PC it was out of order, although I don't know your turbulent past relations with her. Just letting ya know I thought that was well below the belt, although I can't help but defend PC as she's an old friend. SuperJosh 12:55, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I have moved on from that; now she's embarrassed herself on Wikiindex. I have to go and write an article on it sometime. Phantom Hoover 12:57, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I read all that shiznit at the Student Bar. Good job on the Great Exodus article by the way. SuperJosh 13:18, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
But I only wrote the header... Phantom Hoover 13:22, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah but... I can tell that you were thinking all that stuff and just... got other people to write it... SuperJosh 13:28, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Got a moment to drop over here.--Bob M 18:06, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, got to go. If you go to this siteand enter this string:

<phoneme alphabet="ipa" ph="tɛfəlpiːdɪə"> </phoneme>

then the "tefl" part is clearly pronounced. I think you got the latter part from Wikipedia so that should be good. I believe the programme has a problem recognising the ː which tells it that the vowel should be long (or it got messed up in my copy/paste). Anyway, the bottom line that the transcription seems to be good.--Bob M 18:18, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

No-one seems to be on the IRC channel. Phantom Hoover 18:23, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
No my time ran out. That's why I wrote the second message.--Bob M 19:04, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

I deleted the svg

I deleted the svg to try fixing Special:NewImages, but it looks like Teflpedia doesn't keep deleted images (either a config setting or because it's older MW). Can you upload the final svg again? Nx 17:42, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. There's no need to delete it as it appears exec/svg is not the main cause for the error and it's not a fatal error. Nx 20:12, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
OK. Is this a valid favicon (with the layer thing)? Phantom Hoover 20:29, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
It looks ok in Gimp (both layers are there), although I don't have a proper ico file editor and image viewers only report 16x16 (linux doesn't use ico so there's not much support for it). Anyway, it could use some tweaking. When I made the RWW favicon, I basically redraw it pixel-by-pixel in Gimp from the 16x16 svg rendering. Nx 20:38, 26 August 2009 (UTC)


PH, can you roll me up a copy of the teflon logo in which the mortarboard is roughly 120 pixels wide tip to tip, with the text the same size as it is? You can email it to me or post it here. I need it for something I am working on. Thanks! Human 01:55, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Um... It's an SVG file, so I'm not sure if I can do it in terms of absolute pixels, but I'll try. Phantom Hoover 07:53, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

The Pear tree, west nicolson st

I'll be playing there tomorrow at 5.30 (or 5.45)... Totnesmartin 06:14, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
