''ARMwiki'' is running on a new, faster, server (with many '''many''' thanks to Rob). We've upgraded to the latest MediaWiki (v1.19) and added a number of features.<br />

Sadly, due to spam, I have implemented a mechanism where specific users are ''Contributors'', and these users have the ability to create and edit pages. A user profile (email confirmed or not) can no longer edit.<br />
Existing users are strongly encouraged to go to their preferences and select the ''Vector'' skin. This makes things a lot nicer, and there are some additional nicities for people using Vector - smarter side menus, interactive search, etc.<br />

There's also a newer-sexier interactive editor to help make wiki page creation so much simpler.

ARMwiki - ARM processor wiki
articles and information relating to the ARM processor


Important changes regarding create/edit permissions

Sadly, due to spam, I have implemented a mechanism where specific users are Contributors, and these users have the ability to create and edit pages. A user profile (email confirmed or not) can no longer edit.

EU legislation regarding cookies

If you browse ARMwiki as a non-logged in user, no cookies will be set. If, however, you create an account or log in, several cookies will be set in order that you may be identified to the server (for editing content, etc).
The version of MediaWiki that I am using has no intrinsic mechanism for requesting your consent to the use of cookies; therefore it will be assumed that if you create an account and/or log in, you consent to having cookies from ARMwiki placed on your machine.
Please scroll down in order to read more about this.

Content wanted!

ARMwiki is always looking for user contributions. If you have anything to add, please do. To help spark your creative juices, please browse the list of pages that have not yet been written that are cited by existing pages. When writing pages, please follow the style guide.

Please note: You must be a signed-in user who has contacted me for Contributor level access in order to create or edit content.

Cookies!

With reference to the recent European Directive on the use of cookies, please be aware that ARMwiki may use cookies to uniquely identify you. This is necessary as registered users log in, have preferences, and the ability to edit pages. Cookies will be required to manage these activities.

There is no mechanism for you, the user, to explicitly "consent" to having cookies stored. However, if you have come here as an anonymous user, no cookies will have been placed on your machine. It is only when you create an account or login that the cookie is required. Therefore, it will be assumed that logging into ARMwiki is giving consent to having ARMwiki manipulate and store its own cookies on your computer.

Four cookies are stored, all beginning with irreleva_mysql followed by a bunch of numbers. This is a reference to the underlying database upon which ARMwiki is based. The cookies are Token, UserID, UserName, and session. Their function should be clear from the names. Check what cookies are being stored on your computer (this is a how-to, not some sort of script).

Feel free to wipe off the cookies at any time, or to configure your browser to retain cookies from this site on a session-by-session basis. It will not hurt anything, all you'll need to do is log in again.

Alternatively, you may block cookies from ARMwiki (exactly how depends upon your browser), but please be aware that your ability to interact with this site may be somewhat diminished without the use of cookies.

ARMwiki does not contain embedded advertising, therefore there are no issues with third-party cookies.
