Needs picture of books published. Has it been resolved that we don't need to get publishers permissions for book covers? Not sure how the discussion regarding the HP book ended.--Thomas Wright Sulcer 20:17, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

See this Forum discussion:,3089.msg27837.html#msg27837 As far as *I'm* concerned, that settles it. Just use *low-resolution* images. And check out all of the boilerplate used at WP to justify a cover: I think that if you upload and insert *low-resolution* images, PLUS put in as much of that boilerplate as possible (adapting it to CZ forms, of course), then you'll be all right. I'm gonna start doing it myself.... Hayford Peirce 20:28, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Hayford, will do.--Thomas Wright Sulcer 20:30, 17 March 2010 (UTC) Wiley books do show as copyrighted by me, although it was assigned to Wiley. MacMillan has gone through a series of acquisitions and is no longer a separate imprint; I think it's owned by Pearson. Howard C. Berkowitz 20:57, 17 March 2010 (UTC)


I have never designed a little desktop router. The routers I designed were intended for high-end ISP applications, and, indeed, were competitive with what the San Jose Mercury called Cisco's BFR. With the caveat that they were a family newspaper, the Mercury explained that stood for Big Router. While I contributed to the Nortel 8600 and 25000, the really good design never became a product...pity. Howard C. Berkowitz 20:57, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

I thought you worked on bigger routers; is there a picture of a bigger router on Wikimedia Commons which is closer to ones you worked on? Please let me know which one and I'll upload it. I chose that particular router because it looks a lot like the one I have (mine's a wired router). Check here for better router pictures. --Thomas Wright Sulcer 21:00, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
Here's something in the 8600 series. [1]. Cisco has a library of images for news use, but Nortel doesn't -- the press contact for Carrier Ethernet probably could authorize it. Howard C. Berkowitz 21:17, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

A bit too flippant?

"Howard strikes again" and "numerous talks to industry" are a little too flippant, while 'he loves cats and fishing' seems like its cribbed from a high schoolers CV. I'm all for tooting our horn but we might want to do it in a less characatured way. Chris Day 20:37, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes it needs editing. I'll probably do articles on every CZer who has anything written about them or available on the Internet, btw. Toot toot! And I genuinely think HB is notable EVEN THOUGH I disagree with him about certain definitions. --Thomas Wright Sulcer 20:46, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
I can't *wait* to get out my ax and start whacking away at Howard in a venue in which he can't argue with me, hehe.... Hayford Peirce 22:26, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

Speedy delete removed

I have removed the speedy delete template from this article as I do not have the right to delete it. Please see Howard's talk page for further information. --Chris Key 17:37, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

I understand Chris' interpretation of the rules, but Tom Sulcer put this up unilaterally. I'd rather not have it here at all; I already have a user page and it could be hard to argue self-promotion with this here. Howard C. Berkowitz 20:38, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
If you can convince another Computers Editor to put up a speedy delete I shall delete it. --Chris Key 04:18, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

The cited source title is missing

The first reference needs a title. D. Matt Innis 18:30, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
