RE: Copyright data[edit]

As requested I added

Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term. Copyright may extend on works created by French who died for France in World War II (more information), Russians who served in the Eastern Front of World War II (known as the Great Patriotic War in Russia) and posthumously rehabilitated victims of Soviet repressions (more information).

Re: Portable water purification[edit]

Hallo Hydrargyrum,

I translated Portable water purification to another language. The guys there asked me for citations for verification for:

similar in function and appearance to a mechanic's grease gun

Therefore I sought the revision-history and found your edit here (20.06.2006)(#12/20/2006#). Can you help me to find some documents or images proving this? This would be great.

Probably, you know somebody able to take a photo of such a device.

I was writing from memory. I saw such a portable device on a television news report or program, or perhaps an engineering journal, some 10-20 years ago. Also, similar devices have been offered for sale in outdoor sporting goods stores for the civilian market and as survival equipment with inflatable life rafts. Mechanics' grease guns are designed to create a very large mechanical advantage with their pump levers, because it often takes high pressure to inject grease into bearings and movable joints. Similarly, reverse osmosis requires considerable pressure, more than one can provide with direct muscle power alone, so the designers of the hand-held devices borrowed from the mechanisms used in grease guns to increase the mechanical advantage. It took a bit of searching with Google, but I eventually located a couple of photos of such devices at and The second example, the Katadyn Survivor 35 Watermaker, has the classic "grease gun" appearance. I don't own one, and most likely never will, due to the high price, so I can't be of help in getting a first-hand photo. Maybe a footnote referencing the Katadyn devices at the manufacturer's Web site might be sufficient. —Quicksilver@ 19:04, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the fast, comprehensive reply. I did not recognize that it would be superior to search the web for desalination of water and I'm sorry for the incorrect date. (Of course it should be 20 December 2006)--RE RILLKE Questions? 11:51, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

John Tennent[edit]

Hi. W. John Tennent is a friend and entomological colleague of mine. We both served in the British armed forces when we were younger and we share an interest in Oriental butterflies. The images of his that I have adapted and uploaded to Commons were taken by him for an entomological paper. He has given me express permission to upload my composite versions here under CC Attribution 3.0. Thanks for your enquiry. ACCassidy (talk) 21:45, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply. It would be nice if you forward this permission to OTRS. Thank you. --RE RILLKE Questions? 09:55, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
