2007-07-24 19:28:26   wow, that was fast :) Thanks for the Soga's pic! —KevinChin


2007-07-30 21:10:11   Hey Robin, try logging out and then in again (on the [wikispot]hub or on Davis Wiki). —PhilipNeustrom


2007-07-30 21:26:25   What browser and OS are you using? —PhilipNeustrom


2007-07-30 23:32:26   Are you logged in when you visit other wikis like [sf]sf? How about a wiki with its own domain name, like [santacruz]santacruz?

I haven't heard of anybody else having this particular issue. It sounds like it might be an issue with our new secure login system. Why you'd be able to log into daviswiki.org, but not sacwiki.org, is what confuses me. You're able to log in here, right? (after clearing your cookies)? And after you clear your cookies again, you're not able to log into sacwiki.org?

Feel free to email me (philipn at gmail dot com) if you want to speed up this conversation a bit. —PhilipNeustrom


2007-08-10 22:50:48   Hey Robin, great to see your awesome contributions to the [sacramento]Sacramento wiki rolling in. I just wanted to make sure that login issue you were seeing went away after you turned off your ZoneAlarm firewall. —PhilipNeustrom


2007-08-14 17:09:53   Testing (taps mic) —robinlaughlin


2007-08-18 13:16:55   you could use the photo on the panda express, but that only shows the outside. Perhaps JA could be convinced to take a photo on the inner half that actually is hibachi —StevenDaubert


2007-09-18 13:39:37   As per the street pages; I can go either way, but my thought is that link redundancies are good and make it easier for people to find information. Say you are driving down J street and you see a cool looking restaurant and you want to find out its name...with street pages you can find out. Those are my thoughts, but I'm not rooted in them. —JamesSchwab


2007-09-19 11:08:22   Thanks Robin, I think the milk hatch is cool too! —jefftolentino


2007-11-04 11:09:35   Hey, did you ever upload that photo for [sacramento]Sargent's House of Coffee? —GeoffJohnson


2008-01-08 21:40:17   thank you! vous parlez frances? —JessicaRockwell


2008-01-08 21:58:20   well, i don't know how to write in french but i can read it no problem. i can also manage speaking it. if you're serious about wanting to speak more french, e-mail me at liberateothers at yahoo dot com, and i'll get you in touch with a friend from burkina faso who's here in davis. all three of us can go chat it up in french! —JessicaRockwell


2008-12-27 00:01:32   No problem... the content is what's important, the markup can be done by anybody. Speaking of content, that's a nice little history you added on Portage Bay East. —JabberWokky


2009-02-23 00:44:41   Hi Robin, Grazia corrected me when I asked her about Samira's being at the Mishka's location. She (and a number of old time customers) have said that it was once behind the Mustard seed, though. Perhaps you are thinking of the store that Pat Baker had for Men. It was something like a branch of Samira's. I know that this branch was on second street (from an old sale sign we found when we were cleaning out earlier this week that referenced "both second street locations" at the 14th anniversary sale, which would put it at 1988). However, that store was very short lived and was not the main Samira's store. Thanks for your attention to detail. From the information I have from Grazia though, the correct original location was 222 D St. —StephanieStudebaker


2009-06-05 18:59:43   Sometimes the only picture is distorted, but better to have a picture than no picture at all. —JasonAller


2009-06-21 23:34:09   thank you for the warm welcome! —Babhari


2009-06-28 13:33:48   Thanks. I keep trying to reconcile the imagery of the man on the wall with my gut reaction of the litter collector on the village green. Maybe I've projected a more "Halt, who goes there?" than "Would you look at all the stuff they just dump here?" attitude? Either way hopefully I've recharged enough to keep fixing links, deorphanizing pages and trying to welcome newcomers. —JasonAller


2009-06-29 18:41:16   Just for your information: JoSealwood's user name is Bowen. She changed the name of her userpage to JoSealwood. —JasonAller


2009-07-04 20:13:49   Thanks for the welcome! I think labs are great, too — mine does not enjoy the 4th (hides under the bed from the fireworks), but in general is a total love. —jmofro


2009-08-07 19:38:50   Thanks! The construction folks were paving the first Hutchison roundabout today. —ARWENNHOLD


2009-08-08 12:16:09   If you're looking for a [wikipedia]fluffer, you probably want to ask in the pornography entry. ;-P —[gnome]Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards


2009-08-15 16:10:56   that complex has about 14 units iirc? —StevenDaubert It's an older complex but it's very quaint, and the owners do care about it!


2009-08-26 08:42:14   I'm not sure if it's accurate to say West Village will become part of West Davis. West Village is on campus, it's south of Russell Boulevard, and the only way to get to/from West Village will be via Hutchison Drive, which takes you to central campus. —jsogul


2009-09-15 14:31:43   Landscape architects page needs to be renamed to landscape designers, or something, but I'm not sure how to do that. Landscape architects and designers aren't the same thing. Hope you or someone can help. —DonShor


2009-09-15 20:59:07   Hi Robin, "Landscape Design" is better. Thanks for making the change. A landscape architect can practice landscape design, but a landscape designer can't practice landscape architecture.
There are only a couple of landscape architects in Davis. It is a professional certification that requires a degree, apprenticeship, and an exam. They sometimes do residential design, but the designs are usually quite detailed and involve hardscape, sprinklers, construction detail, etc.
There is no certification for landscape design; anyone can call himself or herself a landscape designer. There are quite a lot of landscape designers in town, and it is more likely that a homeowner will work with a designer than a landscape architect. So this name is more accurate and more useful. —DonShor


2009-09-17 23:59:29   Luckily I have eaten at both of them:) —NickSchmalenberger


2009-09-20 18:11:55   thanks! sorry, I got a little confused —cmfarinsky


2009-09-21 14:25:44   Thanks. I guess I did not look at the sign closely enough. —hankim


2009-10-29 19:13:32   Thanks for the constructive edits. Maybe we can restart a trend? —JasonAller


2009-10-30 04:11:17   The peeled grapes are really memorable because I felt them as a young kid and then peeled them as an older kid for the younger kids. —JabberWokky


2009-11-03 01:19:21   Thanks for adding the info about First Northern Bank, I'm glad to know that. —NickSchmalenberger


2009-11-11 15:22:27   Watch me care. *doesn't care*

=)

I can't spell and I've come to terms with that. Correct away when it comes to links. —WilliamLewis


2009-11-19 14:12:14   Nice editing work. Overall, no specific page in mind. —SteveDavison


2009-12-02 14:05:52   I'm just curious why you think ["Local Wiki Survey"] should be kept for historical reasons. It is a terrible survey that has nothing to do with Davis. —WilliamLewis
