Doppler radio direction findingEdit

Hi MM. Thanks for your infinite patience with the DYK process in respect of the above. It's now gone to prep, which is a relief. Meanwhile, I felt that I had let you down in that the article deserves something a bit nearer to a peer review, which I cannot personally provide. But I have three pet physicists who will occasionally step up if asked. One of them has kindly given the article a quick glance, and has offered this (copied and pasted by me to avoid error): "Just one query so far: "... and the higher Fc produces a larger divisor..." Fc is on the top line, so shouldn't it be "larger dividend"?" Cheers. Storye book (talk) 10:02, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

@Storye book: Sorry, only noticed this now! And yes, consider it fixed. Maury Markowitz (talk) 00:05, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

This is to let you know that Project Excalibur has been scheduled as WP:TFA for 14 November 2020. Please check that the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/November 14, 2020. Thanks! Ealdgyth (talk) 14:40, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank you today for the article "about a rather strange event in the history of the cold war. It involves Edward Teller, Ronald Reagan, nuclear bombs and freaking lasers. If that were not enough, it's also filled with leaking top secrets, railroading people, lies, and is the basis for one of the major steps on LLNL's long downward spiral in the eyes of Washington."! ... one of the articles when I knew the author from the topic ;) - Id give you my November beeches but this page is so densely crwoded with DYK credits that I'd create whitespace, - see them on my talk or Bish's. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:52, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Barnstar of Good Humor
I got a very good chuckle out of your Casaba-Howitzer DYK. A shame the DYK wasn't long enough for my favorite part of the sentence "naming various projects after melons and having already used up all the good ones." Keep up the good work! CaptainEek Edits Ho Cap'n! 21:35, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Windscale Sfn no-targetEdit

Hi, a blast from the past here. This series of edits introduces shortened footnote templates {{sfn}} referring to an item of media named "Windscale" with timecodes, so presumably a TV documentary or DVD perhaps. Unfortunately we can't tell, because there is no target defined. Can you help? Cheers! Captainllama (talk) 21:54, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

@Captainllama: Wow, well caught. Fixed! Maury Markowitz (talk) 16:23, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
Excellent - and it's on YouTube, that's my evening's viewing sorted! Thank you Captainllama (talk) 21:43, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
