The "other" CANview

Sorry, but could you explain why you removed the info on the "other" CANview product? DavideAndrea 12:05, 16 June 2006 (CDT)

I didn't remove it, I moved it and other not directly CAN-View items to the bottom of the page [1]. I also added the CAN232 as it sounds similar the the CANview product [2]. --Rjf 15:03, 16 June 2006 (CDT)

Ah. I didn't notice. Sorry, and thanks. --DavideAndrea 16:58, 16 June 2006 (CDT)


Ryan, I created the page Hybrids-Plus. Would you mind coming up with some way of linking to it from the rest of the site? Thanks! --DavideAndrea 09:56, 27 June 2006 (CDT)

I've added Hybrids-Plus to Template:Prius PHEV Options which is included at Prius PHEV & Plug-In Hybrids, aswell as the main menu. --Rjf 12:08, 27 June 2006 (CDT)
Merci beaucoup! --DavideAndrea 12:30, 27 June 2006 (CDT)

Site structure suggestion

> I would prefer we discuss major changes to the site structure and menu system before implementing them...

Yes, of course.

Prius PHEV TechInfo in Sidebar

Thanks for putting a link in the sidebar for the Prius Tech Info page! --DavideAndrea 07:06, 4 July 2006 (CDT)

No problem, thanks for all your help arround the site, those pics are great. BTW, are you working directly with the Hybrids-Plus team? Be sure to let me know if I can help you guys with anything that hasn't made it to the website yet... see User talk:DavideAndrea#Prius PHEV TechInfo in Sidebar --Rjf 12:36, 4 July 2006 (CDT)
Yes, I am working directly with the Hybrids-Plus team.You can see my name listed in the "Team members" section. Thanks for your offer of help!

--DavideAndrea 15:56, 4 July 2006 (CDT)

You cleared my confusion (Lexus vs Prius batt vtg)

>Prius Pack Voltages? >I see some unusual pack voltages listed here... > ...perhaps you're refering to some other vehicle like the HH/RX400h?

A) I am embarrassed for having made that mistake. Thanks for explaining the problem, and clearing up my confusion.

B) Don't you love Wikis? In a regular website this would have gone unchallenged. Here I rely on your help to keep me straight! Much appreciated!

Are we having a spam problem? Anything I can do? D'de --DavideAndrea 18:46, 26 July 2006 (CDT)

No more than usuail, I'm away on vacation so I'm not quite on top of it as I usually am. If you seen anything just revert it and I'll add it to the spam blacklist whenever I check in... --Rjf 22:24, 26 July 2006 (CDT)
I reverted a couple of entries and blocked their IPs. I am not clear if it's OK by you if I block them, or if you prefer if I just wait for you to block them. Have a nice vacation! --DavideAndrea 09:51, 27 July 2006 (CDT)
Reverting is the most important part, you can block them for a day if you like but I find that they mostly strike only once from a given IP. They tend to add links though, which I add to a blacklist so that they can not post the same URL more than once. Seems to work pretty well, there are dry spells and not so quiet times... --Rjf 21:39, 27 July 2006 (CDT)

Editing page anonymously to test notification email message. -- 20:20, 11 November 2007 (CST)

The main body of the notification email message has been changed to list the editor first so that all critical information will now fit within the limited space of a text message. --Rjf 20:43, 11 November 2007 (CST)
Dohh, now making a change anonymously, so that the system will notify me... -- 20:44, 11 November 2007 (CST)
One final change to message, now with the title in subject, date and editor in body. -- 20:50, 11 November 2007 (CST)

Why mention lubrication

Ryan, to tell you the truth, I added the bit on lubrication as a step to pre-empt any PHEV converter from attempting to patent the concept of running the engine evry few miles. Prior art, you know? The last thing I want is for anyone to slow down the PHEV progress by patenting the obvious.

By the way, thanks for adding your clarification at the end. I haven't studied the issue enough to understand it fully, so I appreciated your explanation.

--DavideAndrea 21:15, 24 August 2006 (CDT)

OIC, well it's worth mentioning as it's come up quite a few times in discussion lists over the past years when discussing the potential of PHEV's. Only rescently did someone pointed out that there isn't much need for the lubrication while in EV-only mode due to all of MG2s torque going directly to the wheels and not through the PSD, I'll look for that post... I find it difficult to believe that someone might even consider patenting the concept of running the engine, IMHO that's just crazy. Maybe I can patent the concept of useless concept patents in order to discourage such insanity... --Rjf 22:25, 24 August 2006 (CDT)

Escape tech Info

I am starting a page for technical info for the Ford Escape, akin to the one for the Prius. Would you mind linking it as you see fit?

Thanks, D'de DavideAndrea 15:18, 18 October 2006 (CDT)

Prius tech info

You asked me to talk to you about any changes to the structure of the site. I felt that that Prius Tech info is not specific to Hybrids Plus, but general to the Prius. Therefore, I moved the Prius Tech info page from being under Hybrids Plus to being under Prius PHEV. This is akin to what you did with the Escape. Do you agree? If not, please let me know and I'll undo it.

Thanks D'de DavideAndrea 07:11, 5 December 2006 (CST)

PHEV standards


I guess you may have missed this discussion:

Mind commenting on it? I don't want to add a prominent page without your consent.

Thanks DavideAndrea 06:43, 25 January 2007 (CST)



I created a page for the Nissan Altima Hybrid. I added a link to it in the left side navigation, under "Production Hybrids". Please let me know if that's OK.

DavideAndrea 08:49, 29 April 2007 (CDT)

EDrive vs EnergyCS

As you probably noticed already, I split EDrive and EnergyCS: pages, PHEV options table and navigation. I hope that was OK.
