How to put Google Ad at the right side of the article? Besides, I only want
to show Ad when the user is read the article, but don't want the ad to
appear in the discussion, edit, and history page.

I'm not sure exactly where to raise this, so am asking here.
A researcher I have been in touch with has proposed starting a 2nd,
research-oriented Wikimedia toolserver. He thinks his lab can pay for
the hardware and would be willing to maintain it, if they could get
help setting it up. He got this idea after a member of his research
group tried (unsuccessfully so far -- no response) to get an account
on the current toolserver; their Wikipedia-related research has been
put on hold for a few months because of the delay. (It seems like
there is a big backlog of account requests right now and only one
person working on them?) This research group has done some
interesting Wikipedia research to date and I expect they could do more
with access to the right data.
Personally, I think a dedicated toolserver is a great idea for the
research community, but I know very little about the technical issues
involved and/or whether this has been proposed before. Please comment,
and I can pass on replies and put the researcher in touch with the
tech team if it seems like a good idea.

Two quick questions. I just created a new Wiki special page, setup the group
extension files and all. The first issue I'm noticing is that on the
extension page the name of the page is displaying as <bibliography> .
I can't figure out why, because all the config files have the proper
The second question I have is...I need to write a script that iterates
through all articles (or better yet articles attached to a specific
category), sort through them, extract specific info and render it on my
bibliography page. I can do the last part but I'm having trouble looking
through the class list and supported hooks that will allow me to retrieve a
list of articles. Does someone have code that does this already or can point
me in the correct direction?
Can you upload them somewhere? Mailman strips attachments.

Here's an idea: nice URLs for the history. So we don't end up with
stupid things peppered with ? and & and = printed on mugs, travel
e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/history/Xenu for the history of

Say one can successfully see the UTF-8 in an SQL dump with
$ mysqldump --default-character-set=latin1 my_database | less
OK, now how about browsing with phpmyadmin? no matter what I set,
browser charset or various phpmyadmin choices,
fields like 'ar_title varchar(255) latin1_bin'
come out as mess.
I just want to browse them, not change or 'injure' them.
(That is the varchars, phpmyadmin won't let me browse the blobs.)

Subject: [Toolserver-announce] toolserver admins wanted
- -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
we're now (again) looking for new admins. i originally posted this about a
year ago, but we ended up not being able to add new admins then, so nothing
happened. if you applied then, please feel free to re-apply.
we are looking for someone with experience using the following in a production
+ General Unix to an expert level (say, 7-10 years experience at least)
+ general administration
+ patch management
+ live upgrade
+ Debian Linux
people without this experience may be considered, if you're willing to put in
the effort to get up to speed quickly.
knowledge of the following would be helpful:
+ C and/or C++ programming language
+ Sun Java System Web Server
+ Zeus Web Server
+ LDAP (Sun DSEE)
some tasks the new admin might start with:
+ designing and implementing a monitoring system to provide current and
historical statistics about the cluster, warning about problems, etc.
+ implementing a network install (jumpstart) framework to enable
(re)installation of hosts easily, with proper post-install setup.
it would be particularly nice to have another 'on-call' admin besides myself,
for when there are urgent problems with the cluster and no one is around.
you should either be a well-known and trusted member of the community, or else
have some kind of professional background (either academic or commercial). we
might require references for the latter, depending on the situation. you will
be required to provide the Wikimedia office with proof of your identity.
if you're interested, please mail me privately (not the list), including some
information about yourself and details of your relevant background/experience,
and an estimate of how much time you might be able to donate. you may include
a CV if you wish.
