Hi! Thanks for helping, been a while since I've seen you around anywhere. :) But I'd like to point out a couple things:

1) When you move a page, please go back to the page you moved (redirect=no) and click What Links Here. You need to go through and make sure there aren't any double redirects. MediaWiki only follows redirects once; if a redirect points to a redirect it'll leave you at a page with a link to the proper page. I'm pointing out the OS Alternatives sequence of pages in particular. All I did to fix it was go edit the root page to have an OS: in there as well.

2) Nostalgy is still "live"? News to me. :P Does this mean I should actually try to get the keypad routines working? :) Though I should actually be able to; I had to get a keypad working in AVR assembly in my assembly class last semester so I know pretty much exactly how to tackle it.

Nice to see you around again.

Thank you for welcoming me back. Yes, I was gone for a while, I was in a seminary in Germany, but I'm glad to say that there was a little progress with Nostalgy... I finished coding the font routines, some ION/RLE/VRLE compression/decompression routines, some string-displaying routines, and started playing around with trying to use the extra LCD RAM as temporary ram space. Of course, none of these have been tested yet, but at least there is a first draft of them, and knowing my coding abilities, they'll have to be debugged all over the place, but that's beside the point. Unfortunately, I believe I may be the only one with the most parts of the original source, as any uploads have been out-dated for a while. I have all these source parts, but they also need to be integrated into the project as a whole.

Sorry about the Wiki redirect stuff. I'm new to this whole Wiki-thing, it took me a while to figure out how to get it to do what i wanted it to... then i noticed the naming scheme in the Contributing page and tried to move it to the correct location.

BTW, why doesn't TIOS_Alternatives show up in Category:83Plus:OS Information?

Whoops, forgot the Category bit at the top. Welcome back. :) Gambit 06:37, 21 Feb 2006 (PST)

re: minor edits

(see User talk:AndyJ). Generally, I consider anything more than formatting, punctuation, or spelling fixes/changes as being a "major" edit. Anything that adds content to an article, be it a couple sentences or multiple paragraphs, shouldn't be marked as minor. Perhaps we should have an official policy page on this... Also, it only really matters that it's not marked minor because MediaWiki has an option to not show minor edits in the edit history or recent changes; I do not know if any of our users use that (since we have such a low change rate anyway), but just in case I'd like to flag edits that shouldn't be minor as not being minor. :) Andy Janata 17:16, 1 September 2006 (PDT)
