SteveDavison is the elusive mastermind behind the original creation of the Buffets page! Welcome to the Wiki, Steve! —PhilipNeustrom

Thanks, Phil! :) —SteveDavison (I'm elusive???...)

"The Wiki is the best thing going on the web today. It's what the web was meant to be." —SteveDavison

How do you find me? I'm the guy who's always promoting the Davis Wiki -especially the Events Board.

When I first came to Davis people asked me why I chose Davis (it wasn't because of school or a job). At a point in my life I realized I'd never be able to own a car, so I did a bit of research and found that Davis was the "most bicycle friendly city in the U.S." It is said to be the "second most educated" city in the U.S. That, plus a great climate (no snow, not too hot), not too far away from Silicon Valley and San Francisco, it has a five-star university, and it's in an agricultural area (never go hungry) made it sound perfect. It wasn't too far from Burning Man, the world's greatest art festival. But the real reason was a last-ditch effort to attract a female. In the end, girls are all that matter in life. In fact, they're the most important things in the universe. This is all still true, however the dark side is: the cost of living here is so high that it's highly stressful. Living under so much stress that you can barely sleep at night is no way to live. Perhaps there is a place where one can live cheaply, although without the other advantages. I've heard Fresno is the poorest city in the U.S. (presumably that means a low cost of living), but people who have lived there say the disadvantages outweigh the advantages, so I've stayed put so far. Perhaps out in a forest? Or in the desert (cheap land, but what about water -there must be a reason nobody else lives there) On a boat or raft (but what about storms, lack of space)? In a school bus or mobile home? That also sounds expensive. We're all the same; we're all trying to find our place in the world. A cosmic musical chairs.

On food: I practice the Seefood Diet. I see food, I eat it. I prefer [wikipedia]eating plants to animals. My lifelong dream has been to have an open account at a food store, such as our wonderful Davis Food Co-op. In this fantasy whenever I wanted food, I could get it at DFC and just have them put it on my account. I'd always have great food, and never be hungry again. I suspect this fantasy is shared by the majority of Earth's population. As it is, all my food either comes from dumpsters or closely related places. But, as I go, so will the rest of Earth's population.

On the students who live in the Domes and the On campus Co-ops: They are so beautiful, so beautiful, so beautiful. I have dreams about them.

Things I love: Grad students; they rock. Seminars. Marimbas. Bicycles. Art. Clever, creative, brilliant things. Helpful people.
Things I love...NOT: Cars and car drivers. Stupid, illogical, thoughtless things and stupid, illogical, thoughtless people.

The bicycle in the photograph was stolen. So if you see one which casts an identical shadow, please bring it to my attention. Identifying features: [wikipedia]Round things in the front and back, [wikipedia]swively thing in the front.

My roommate called both campus and the county about a bird that appeared to be dying from a nerve disorder in our yard last week, and the county said they weren't interested while campus said they might come out to take a look... nobody ever did. I posted the info on West Nile based on the CDC site, so I'm going to revert it, but you can revert it back if you have a more concrete source. —AlphaDog

2005-09-14 11:43:29   What city did you used to live in? I just saw your post (yours right?) about Douglas Theaters and I know of only two cities they operate in (one of which is Lincoln, where I'm from). —CarlMcCabe

I made Cafe Italia as a redirect on purpose because it is a very common spelling mistake by most people. It's not only non-wiki users who spell it wrong. If you do a search for it, you'll find it in a lot of comments that way. And because it exists, searching for Cafe Italia will result in Caffe Italia at the top (it didn't before I think, though it might have). A redirect is easier then trying to fix every spelling mistake made in the past and that might be made in the future about it :P. -ES

(Moving here instead of The California Aggie so it doesn't clutter.)

Incredibly though, the California Aggie is not available online. Sure, you can read some of the contents (and limited archives) at the website, but this highly abridged version does not contain the daily calendar, advertisements, classifieds, weather, and other essential features. (Come into the 21st century; just put the paper as a .pdf on the website. Possibly even have the daily calendar as a separate page, or .rss too.)

When's a good time to pick up that card table of yours, and how can I contact you? You can email me at philipn at gmail dot com. —PhilipNeustrom

Hiya. Actually, the StudentNutritionAssociation redirect served a purpose. The secretary of the club sent an email to all of our members with wrong wikiaddress (without underscores between the words, while the correct address has underscores), so I figured it would be a pretty common mistake. Thus, the StudentNutritionAssociation redirect was born! I apologize if that's a wiki faux pas. —Anna

I didn't make the Aggie Songs page, i just edited them, but you have a valid point: they don't really need their own pages. —AllisonEriksen

Nice job with the PVI additions! —CraigBrozinsky

2005-10-31 23:57:08   On what page were the wiki weekly get-togethers mentioned? —AlexNorris

2005-11-01 03:35:32   I like your quote about the wiki —GeoffJohnson

2005-11-05 10:37:54   Hey dude, me and Norris are up for it next week, he's gone this weekend. So, yeah, definitely, we'll give it a try. Got any ideas where you want to stop first? —JohnDudek

2005-11-05 11:09:29   Huh, I see that I did set the starting point and I did a translation too so the origin was in the center, if I am looking at the right file and it renders fine too. So maybe it was a bug in Ghostscript that got fixed in an automatic upgrade since I did it before. I see that gs-gpl has been upgraded at least twice since then. I learned about PostScript at a LUGOD lecture Micah J. Cowan gave on [WWW]2005-02-01. For some time before then I had had this desire to generate pentagrams and it was in June that I realized Postscript would be perfect for this. So I got the tutorial and reference manual from Adobe, and since I had forgot most of the stuff from the lecture, they really helped. It also helped me learn about postfix which was really cool too and now I want an RPN calculator. So yeah, Postscript is great. I haven't done much with it since then, but I just read about how the NeXT display system was based on Postscript and now the OSX display is based on PDF and that is really awesome too. I wish there would be a free vector display system so I could use it in Linux. Cool stuff, and thanks for the tip. —NickSchmalenberger

2005-11-07 14:42:17   Hey, I liked the original wording on DQU - "Few people are aware that there is a university in Davis". It's witty and fun — moreso than a simple "there are two universities". Disclaimer: I wrote it. Good updates, though. —JabberWokky

2005-11-07 21:14:59   Thanks for setting the Hacking Society time and date. Look forward to seeing you there. —DavidReid

2005-11-13 08:25:23   Steve's law of democracy: The difficulty of organizing a group of people is equal to 2 to the power of the number involved minus 1. d=2**(n-1) —SteveDavison

2005-11-13 10:54:33   haha, thanks! —ES

2005-11-14 21:59:37   Hey, I just went over a thousand edits! —SteveDavison

2005-11-14 22:08:06   I'm so proud, Steve! 1000 edits, that's a great landmark. I'm not even up to 200 yet... —JohnDudek

2005-11-14 22:12:01   One of the major achievements of my life, for sure... —SteveDavison

2005-11-19 23:05:15   hey, dude, we didn't end up going out, because of our lack of coordination. Me/Norris were thinking this Wednesday, and your choice of place is good. I'll give you a call on Tuesday. —JohnDudek

2005-11-20 11:21:50   Older fellow isn't offensive, IMO. It doesn't imply an "us" at all. It's relatively commonly used and more respectable then 'older man' or anything like that, and doesn't imply as much age as using the word 'elder' in there. Newspapers also use 'older fellow' at times. I'm surprised you'd think Scooter Man as a title isn't respectful. He did edit that page a bit, and it's what most people see him as. If he was offended I'd imagine he'd do or say something about it. That's the point of the page. No one would see him ride by and know his name is Daniel. Likewise, that's why there's a Visor Lady page. Seen her through a very visible feature, but know nothing about her. Though I'm also surprised you didn't find offense at it saying she 'waddles' around campus. —ES

2005-11-21 11:05:09   How do you guys decide where to eat for the review? sounds like fun :) —ES

2005-11-23 09:18:16   Interested in GRASS? —DylanBeaudette

2005-11-23 23:09:39   I don't think the spare changer page needs a template table at the top. It's not a part of any template, and two of the fields in that table were empty (and easily seen in the following paragraph)? —PhilipNeustrom

2005-11-27 20:23:01   Old habit (mailto macro) I guess. If you look at the old version, there was some weirdness in the email anyway. Is the circ you posted for davis only, or the total circ? —ArlenAbraham

2005-11-27 22:15:43   The old email address included the mailto: and showed up like a wiki nospam macro shows up, but with the mailto: as part of the link. [MAILTO]mailto:someone@example.comArlenAbraham

2005-11-27 23:50:39   Looks like you're going through pages and making a sort of standard layout for hours and whatnot, thanks! Perhaps a page describing the format used should be in order, to help others in your crusade... —TarZxf

2005-11-28 00:53:57   Was the homeless guy in Jack in the Box the one with the long beard? If so, I think he's a regular and he occasionally barks at people. —CraigBrozinsky

2005-11-28 01:15:57   It's multiple choice between the most common answers, with an option for write-in responses if the choices don't match what people say. The question asked was "What do you call a traffic situation in which several roads meet in a circle and you have to get off at a certain point?" As I just edited on the page, this leaves open the question of whether regions willy-nilly use these terms, or there are in fact more roundabouts near Davis, and more Traffic Circles elsewhere. Oh, and BTW, I coincidentally took the updated version of that linguistic survey a few days back, and happened to remember that question when you brought up the distinction between the two! —CraigBrozinsky

2005-11-29 17:18:22   I noticed you've been changing the time format on every page you hit to ":00" for the top of the hour, and the am/pm notation to caps. What's up with that?? I realize it's a stylistic decision, and each of us has our own preferences, so perhaps we could just keep it as it's been for those of us traditionalists in the pack. Just noticed and thought I'd float the suggestion. —AlphaDog

2005-12-06 02:09:18   That was, I think, the funniest typo I've ever seen. —SummerSong

2005-12-17 21:30:26   Excellent info on the Ikea page, well done —DomenicSantangelo

2005-12-18 09:53:45   Good rewrite - I was just concerned with clearing out all the Yuppieville links, not the references. —JabberWokky

2005-12-20 01:04:44   yeah the wanted pages are kind of hard sometimes. i feel like i haven't done anything worth while on the wikiw for months so i decided to tackle wanted pages. some i know i've seen forever so i just deleted them, if someone wants to make a page they can. there's always a few that simple need to be changed, ie they were linked to the mis-spelling of a page, or need to be made into a redirect. but with list pages, like frats, sororities, and plants, i just delete. hopefully those groups or items will come by and make a page. —MichelleAccurso

2005-12-21 23:38:40   You've always been a stickler for [wikipedia]SI units, Steve. —ArlenAbraham

2005-12-23 17:53:00   Steve, I got that circ. number from the front of some junk mail that was sent to my house. —ArlenAbraham

2005-12-26 00:07:04   I like the street divisions. If you were really ambitious, you could split things up, West and East sides of the street. Actually, that's a bad idea. Nevermind. —ArlenAbraham

     Fake Indent

2005-12-26 00:12:30   I've also proposed a "Wiki Walk", where a small party of Wikians might go down a street and get accurate data for everything. Think Sketch Crawl, except Wiki Crawl. —SteveDavison

2005-12-27 23:06:21   Steve, why don't you IRC with the rest of the the IRC Folk? —TarZxf

2005-12-31 21:04:30   Steve, could you please revert your changes to JK microsystems. You changed the 'm' to 'M'. It is properly lowercase. You can check the website to confirm. I fixed the text within the article, but I can't figure out how to fix the heading. Thanks. —[GrumpyoldGeek]

2006-01-14 08:29:47   re: Davis Psychic I removed them (or rather, agreed with "DavisWikiGnome", whoever that is) because they are content free comments, and don't really add anything to the entry — RocksAndDirt's comment being the only possible exception, which should probably be an edit directly to the page. I don't have a strong opinion on the matter — I'm just voting my mind by doing one revert. If you revert it back, I'll disagree, but I won't revert it back the other way (although I might rewrite the comments into the main entry — which is difficult in this case, which is an indicator that the comments don't add anything to the entry). To sum up, my revert was a mild vote of agreement with DavisWikiGnome's original deletion. I don't feel particularly strong about it either way. —JabberWokky

2006-01-16 04:09:26   "it was kind of lighthearted, and I enjoyed it. Sometimes things can be off-topic, yet valuable for other reasons." — I agree. That's why I wasn't strongly against them, just mildly on the side of deleting them at the time I did it. If you feel strongly about it, restore them; I'd leave it alone — I'd save an argument for something that I *do* feel strongly about. —JabberWokky

2006-02-06 21:31:48   Steve, I don't see what the harm is in including the international country code in the phone numbers for e.g. YEEP. Including that information benefits people from outside North America who might have reason to contact the entity in question, and it doesn't prevent people in this region from doing the same. Whenever I contact entities outside the US, I always find it frustrating when they don't include the country code. —GrahamFreeman

2006-02-09 10:38:59   Thank you for the glowing compliments on the SNA page. —AnnaJones

2006-02-12 15:23:35   At Guadelajara, did you get the regular burrito, or the super-burrito? its much larger, costs less than a dollar more and is still cheaper than most other davis places. —CraigBrozinsky

2006-02-16 00:25:49   Hey Steve, did you get your shirt yet? I'm in charge of distribution now, so leme know (email) if you still want to buy a shirt. —ArlenAbraham

2006-03-06 21:14:23   Google does have info on Farmtown, see [WWW] Furthermore, Farmtown is mentioned on the Ray's page of this very website. Maybe later I will make Farmtown it's own page, I have some stuff I could put up. Here is another page from google: [WWW] and another [WWW] Kind of weird that this Canadian webpage had a list of California video stores, but okay: [WWW] If by "google can't find that" you were referring to, that is not true either: [WWW],-95.677068&sspn=45.957536,81.914062&q=farmtown+davis I'm surprised Google Maps didn't find this one: [WWW]

2006-03-09 19:48:15   Thanks for entering the Yolo County Church of Religious Science page. I'm leaning how to create a website for the church. —BarryBolden

2006-03-13 22:28:31   Thanks, my friends and I decided to go hang out one day, and just started taking pictures, I have a series of them on my computer. —JulienBiewerElstob

2006-03-14 02:43:58   Why did you take those slashes off the end of the urls on Ray's Food Place? —NickSchmalenberger

2006-03-18 20:18:38   In defense of the Bike Church it is finals week. The CoHo is hardly open. —ArlenAbraham

2006-03-23 07:57:00   Sorry about no one being at the Bike Church Saturday. Everyone is busy with finals and no one thought to update the wiki page. —JasonMoore

2006-04-04 16:38:06   hey steve, I'm not quite sure where you originally came up with those dates for Cow Crank, but 14 was definitely in 2005. Maybe if you review the edit history it might spark your memory as to where you got the other dates from. I think maybe you gave the slogans years as if they were 1,2, and 4- not years 11, 12 and 14. Also, other than your comment I can't find any mention of Cow Crank 15 on the page.—AmeliaCarlson

2006-04-05 13:57:18   Well I fixed the dates on the Cow Crank page... but as Ameila pointed out, all the incongruent dates had come from your editing. Only dates I mentioned were the inital 1992 and cow crank 14 in 2005. I only listed a few of the themes, because those are the only ones I can remember/have shirts for. —JevanGray

2006-04-11 17:42:55   That phone number for the Turtle House is actually for the business office of the landlord. Do you think that the page should say that, or say nothing, or what? —NickSchmalenberger

2006-04-11 18:17:47   Steve! Your phone is telling me it doesn't exist! Tomorrow! (Wednesday 12th at Noon, Delta Venus) To oppose Target! By us! Davis Anti-Authoritarians! —TobinJones

2006-04-17 19:36:42   Is the Domes -> The Domes redirect really necessary? —ArlenAbraham

2006-04-21 13:58:38   Steve, you might be interested in this article: [WWW] . —NickSchmalenberger

2006-04-23 22:57:33   Um, Stanford definitely did NOT win the Battle of the Bands. The Aggie Band-uh! would never/did not allow that to happen. We had plenty of music and musicians and were not near ready to throw in the towel. Yet again, the Aggie Band-uh won again-a. —AllisonEriksen

2006-05-12 00:25:36   about 7 months after you linked it, I just realized my restaurant reviews were linked on the top of the restaurant page! I stand by my restaurant comments, but I removed that link lest anyone perceive my pontifications as authoritative. —CraigBrozinsky

2006-05-22 17:21:09   Hi there, you asked about one month ago what it was like to live at Pacifico. I have lived in Kaweah (D Building) for six months. The meal plan is optional: you can eat alone in your room, with everyone, or have a late plate saved if you're gone. We divide weekly chores depending on the number of people living on the floors and clean the building once a quarter. You can call the office or come eat dinner with us Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday at 7 pm. The number is: 530-297-1222. —KyleHinshaw

2006-07-16 00:55:49   How does one find the elusive Steve? —MarieHuynh

2006-08-09 16:57:38   Steve, you might want to try leaving out a piece of paper on a non-spray night so you can compare them. If you want to catch dead insects, leave out a white sheet. But always make sure to do a control - because insects are always dying so you want to know the difference. —KarlMogel

2006-08-25 18:00:36   Hi Steve, I just got my new firewire audio unit - I'm moving this weekend, but this has just bumped up the tape analysis. —KarlMogel

2006-12-05 00:07:46   Please add info or corrections to the Telephones or Central Phone Office pages if you want. Thanks. —NickSchmalenberger

2007-02-12 20:54:33   Steve, I still have no idea what you're talking about on the Tim Spencer alley page. F/G streets run straight up and down. Here's a google map for [WWW]clarityArlenAbraham

2007-02-21 09:46:57   Hey Steve, what's crackin'? It's been a while, my friend. You, me, and Norris should do lunch some time, maybe call up Andrew and Michelle as well. Get the old crew back together. I'm moving off to college after the summer. —JohnDudek

2007-02-22 01:27:37   hey steve, there's no maybe about it, you should definitely call all of us for another (and i guess final) restaurant "review" :) —MichelleAccurso

2007-03-22 09:13:33   oh, I dont' want it to be final! —JohnDudek

2007-09-07 02:17:49   Hi Steve, This is a Solomon. I really miss hanging out with you and talking about circuits. I'm going to be in Davis on Tuesday, perhaps we could meet up? I would be happy to do some research for you with my scope out in Oakland. —SolomonBothwell

2007-10-04 17:16:02   yay for winning something! just look at the banner up by the stoplight at 3rd and b. pretty much the same info. i have your cord i need to give you still. chao! —JessicaRockwell

2007-10-05 20:31:13   Hey Steve, Actually, yeah, there are a bunch of people going by bike from the Davis Food Co-op. Call up the Co-op and ask for April Kamen or maybe for a manager. Someone should know about the DFC people who are going to Hoes Down by bike and be able to give you contact info, or maybe their route.

If you miss that "bus", you can get to the [WWW]Cache Creek Casino, but you have to first go to Woodland. There's a bus that leaves at 8:55 am from the County Fair Mall. From Cache Creek, it's not very far to Hoes Down. And at that point it's safer to use the main road, because the Casino traffic will be behind you. Backroads are better, but I don't know those. —JoRo

2007-12-04 22:34:18   steve, do you have any interest in doing part of a radio show with me on wednesday, december 19 from 5-6 pm? please let me know jnrockwell AT ucdavis DOT edu .... gracias! —JessicaRockwell

2007-12-20 17:36:04   Please, oh, please! Say that you're going to expanding those seeds! —JabberWokky

2007-12-20 18:56:53   Some of the addresses for the new business listings you've been adding are the people's home address and not really a business address. Where are you getting the information from? —JasonAller

To add to that, some of the people appear to be [WWW]removing their home addresses. What is the source of the info you got? I fear you've inadvertently made a gaffe here. Do you have a list so we can try and run back through them? —JabberWokky

2008-03-10 22:44:04   Hey, are you sure that's the date the review appeared? I noticed the dates are a day off sometimes, which is why I didn't specify. I may have just gotten oddball ones last October, but I don't really trust the dates to line up in print and online. —JabberWokky

2008-04-13 22:56:27   Hi Steve. Thank you for your comments on my wiki edits for the ESLPm page. I am still learning how to use the wiki in the most correct and efficient way, and I appreciate the feedback. Also, stcastle is my real name. "St" is the first two initials of my name and Castle is my last name. —Stephanie Castle —stcastle

2008-05-02 11:02:28   i hope to see you at maker faire!!! wheeeee!!!!!!!! —JessicaRockwell

2008-10-16 14:19:01   Very good to see you as always yesterday at the thing. —BrianAng

2009-05-06 15:54:15   Steve, I've moved back to Davis and we ought to hang out sometime! Norris is moving back too and we've been toying with the idea of getting the Society of Wiki Restaurant Reviewers back together if you're interested (though Michelle has moved and I haven't talked to Andrew in around a year)! —JohnDudek

2009-05-22 18:51:16   Oh no, why a couple weeks? What are you up to, sir? —JohnDudek

2009-07-11 11:02:52   frank t, RUNS THE DELI INSIDE THE SUPERMARKET AS WELL AS DOING BARBEQCUE... if you walk up to his place of business, it looks shockingly like a deli

if you call hometown market in dixon and ask to talk to the "deli" frank will answer the phone

are you high?

♥ —StevenDaubert
Post Script: But nice try though! I'm going to let you add the deli part back in.
Post Post Script: Just you don't mistake my incredulous response as vitriolic please call (707) 678-5553 and ask for the deli, or even better go to "Frank T's BBQ" and order 1/2 lb of sliced pepperjack, 1/3 lb of salami, or you can go to the case to the left and order entrees already made up...

2009-07-30 10:22:46   I'm trying you! We should get lunch or something soon. —JohnDudek

2009-09-17 00:41:16   I decided that the Enterprise website was so thoroughly broken that even though Newsbank is a third party, using my Yolo County Library account was the most practical method of searching the Enterprise. Somehow, Newsbank gets the text by another method I guess. With all of the disadvantages you mentioned for the e-edition, I don't even try to use it. I like how the Winters Express in comparison has one pdf for each issue and its named for the date of the issue, and google indexes them. I'm glad you wrote about the horrible website though, because people should know just whats wrong with it. Thanks, I completely agree with you. —NickSchmalenberger

2009-09-20 09:44:33   How about turning gallery cafe into a redirect? —JasonAller

2009-09-25 15:10:39   The person I mentioned stealing a hotdog was actually Shawn650, a now banned user. —SunjeetBaadkar

2009-09-26 16:03:18   I think the Daviswiki standard format idea is kind of scary, I like seeing how the wiki looks differently as a result of contributions by different people. Aesthetically, I think the business templates have actually been bad for the wiki. It makes it less clear that people can just come on and write this stuff however they feel like, people shouldn't have to learn as much conventions for wiki style. At the same time, people do need to learn what pages already exist for and having the names of existing pages more visible is helpful this way. —NickSchmalenberger

2009-10-03 10:20:34   Do you have any more information on the events you posted on the "Events Board"? Specifically, On the Technocultural Edge? I may be interested, but the google yielded nothing. —MasonMurray

2009-10-04 21:01:21   I don't think so, I did find their website (After download the UCDavis Course Catalog and digging through it) and have a .jpg of the flier you mentioned if you would like it. —MasonMurray

2009-10-07 15:16:52   Hey steve, is this you? [WWW]

2009-10-11 09:25:52   Thanks! It was a little fortuitous in that I didn't preplan the shot but it was the best one I could find after walking around the north-east end of the store. I was pretty pleased to see the results, too. —RyanMikulovsky

2009-10-11 20:54:47   William and I got our shower curtain at the Woodland target and we're quite happy with it. What exactly is so stupid about the bike racks anyway? I don't know, I haven't been there yet. —NickSchmalenberger

2009-10-18 04:22:08   I'd appreciate if you add something to the pages on the other wikis when you delete redundant pages here. Thanks! —NickSchmalenberger

2009-10-22 13:05:12   Hello, Steve. Do you know which theatre company/performance group is putting on the Evening with Olaf show benefiting the Davis Parent Nursery School? And is it a play or a series of vignettes or skits or...? —EliseKane

2009-10-24 13:05:36   hi Steve...thanks for the info; I will call DPNS. And thanks for the kind words about my sculpture! I like it too =) —EliseKane

2009-10-26 20:48:57   Wow, nice find! —PhilipNeustrom

2009-10-26 21:22:08   Screenshots of spammercam? The page needs a graphic. —JasonAller

2009-10-26 21:45:10   One of the more amusing twists on the wiki! —JabberWokky

2009-10-26 22:02:28   Philip and Steve — the images coming off that webcam link are either corrupt or otherwise odd. I did a simple "convert cam190.jpg SpamHaus.jpg" using ImageMagick to reencode the file and the new one works fine. During the conversion, however, ImageMagick reported that:

convert: Premature end of JPEG file `cam190.jpg' @ coders/jpeg.c/EmitMessage/226.
convert: Corrupt JPEG data: premature end of data segment `cam190.jpg' @ coders/jpeg.c/EmitMessage/226. the image is likely just a broken format that the wiki is bouncing as an invalid image. —JabberWokky

2009-10-29 01:09:05   nice questions —StevenDaubert

2009-10-29 04:21:40   You mean something like Wikiholics Anonymous? —JabberWokky

2009-11-05 01:05:08   Why did you revert it to old pictures? —IDoNotExist

2009-11-10 11:34:00   Hey, I reverted the featured page edit, because it isn't really a page... it might be better under Wiki News. —JabberWokky

2009-11-18 17:48:22   Uh... no one ever looks at the events board either. —BrentLaabs

2010-03-18 21:48:48   Nice to meet you, Steve! Thanks again for helping me with the Crepe House Uni lighting!—AlexanderHo

2010-03-24 16:42:20   I'm aware of ISO dates. I just find their use outside of logfiles and other such things to be troublesome. —WilliamLewis

2010-03-25 19:31:11   Re: Free Cone Day: Oh no, I meant that in a totally tongue-in-cheek way! I knew you were joking when you put that, and my response totally wasn't meant to be serious! —AlexanderHo

2010-05-13 06:34:49   ISO Date power! —NickSchmalenberger

2010-06-09 11:17:09   Thanks for all of the post-election updates! —CovertProfessor

2010-07-03 09:35:28   SD! I need to contact you. I have perused the wiki casually and could not find your email address. I no longer have your phone number and do not know if you still use the same one. I'll ask John if he has it. My email address is alexandernnorris ([aT)] geemayl daught cawm. I am planning on building/converting a stationary bicycle into a human-powered energy generator and would like your assistance! —AlexNorris

2010-07-26 12:55:07   Hi Steve. There are many web resources about the difference between margin and markup. You used "markup" in your edit on Davis Food Co-op and the figures cited were both for margin. 36% is the target for margin between costs and prices charged, and half a percent was the final margin of income over expenses. —DougWalter

2010-07-29 18:25:55   Yes, definitely closed. See Tres Hermanas. —CovertProfessor

2010-09-03 22:14:41   The next time I'm in Davis we should have sushi, maybe with Greg? He still lives in Davis too. —NickSchmalenberger

2010-09-05 02:16:32   I miss you too! —NickSchmalenberger

2010-11-21 16:17:53   If I recall correctly, that comment wasn't actually KTcooper... somebody used the computer at the store, which was logged in under that account. I may be misremembering, and I can't find the place where it was cleared up (dimly I remember that KTcooper was on a trip or something). KTcooper is pretty open about their relationship to the store, so I doubt it was deception (although I'm not removing the notice myself; I'm just giving you the information as to why I didn't restore it). —JabberWokky

2010-11-22 02:15:12   Yup. As I said: I just was giving you the situation as I remembered it. Multiple people using one account is always problematic in my view. It removes accountability, which is the whole reason you have to login to edit anyway. —JabberWokky

2011-01-24 16:47:12   [WWW] The main lounge in Tercero is in the dining commons building. It is on the first floor, underneath the dining commons on the second floor. You should see the entrance on the south side of the building.... a room with lots of chairs, couches, huge windows, a projection screen, and a big TV in the north-west corner. —WilliamLewis

2011-04-14 00:00:15   Free cone day? Chicago song? I thought it was the fourth of July? (Dang your eyes, Mr. Davison... now I have that song stuck in my head!) —JabberWokky

(Version from Chicago V, track 7 "Saturday in the Park" (the original release))
(Written by Robert Lamm referring to New York Central Park, 1971-07-04.)

Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing Italian songs
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For Saturday

Another day in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
Another day in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
People talking, really smiling
A man playing guitar
And singing for us all
Will you help him change the world
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For today
Slow motion riders fly the colors of the day
A bronze man still can tell stories his own way
listen children all is not lost
all is not lost
Oh no, no

Funny days in the park
And every day's the Fourth of July
Funny days in the park
And every day's the Fourth of July
People reaching, people touching
A real celebration
Waiting for us all (waiting for us all)
If we want it, really want it
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For the day
yeah yeah yeah

2012-06-17 23:10:51   Hey Steve! Have you been playing around with RTLSDR? —WilliamLewis

2013-10-09 01:12:05   Wow. That's embarrassing that the nursing school was left out. —JabberWokky

2013-10-14 19:45:22   Added that domain to my spamsweeper script. Good catch. —JabberWokky

2014-10-01 10:53:02   Thanks for the Wire Man post! —ToddKaiser

2014-10-01 13:07:22   I will subsidize your photo to the tune of $1. Thanks for taking it. Like you said you don't *have* to pay / could have waited but still we all know it was the thing to do. —StevenDaubert

2014-10-02 00:40:20   I would have paid him too, just for having the chutzpah to ask for it. Plus, it is a great story with the photo! —JabberWokky

2014-12-16 22:57:50   ping —ChristopherMckenzie
