User talk:Grumpy Gus
Here are some useful tips to ease you into the Wikipedia experience:
- First, take a look at the Wikipedia Tutorial, and perhaps dabble a bit in the test area.
- When you have some free time, take a look at the Manual of Style and Policies and Guidelines. They can come in very handy!
- Remember to use a neutral point of view!
- If you need any help, feel free to post a question at the Help Desk
- Explore, be bold in editing pages, and, most importantly, have fun!
Also, here are some odds and ends that I find useful from time to time:
- Wikipedia:Policy Library
- Wikipedia:Cite your sources
- Wikipedia:Conflict resolution
- Wikipedia:Brilliant prose
- Wikipedia:Pages needing attention
- Wikipedia:Peer review
- Wikipedia:Bad jokes and other deleted nonsense
- Wikipedia:Village pump
- Wikipedia:Boilerplate text
Feel free to ask me anything the links and talk pages don't answer. You can most easily reach me by posting on my talk page.

Best of luck, and have fun!

If you absolutely wan to make a reference to a wake-up phase of Quebec society then it's an awakening, not a wake. If you had something else in mind then stae it. It can't possibly be hydrodynamics or modern Celtic burial customs. --AlainV 05:56, 27 Oct 2004 (UTC)
The thing is that these institutions did not all appear after the Quiet Revolution. The big noticeable ones like Hydro Quebec (which was born in 1944 but became a new institution during the QR) and CEGEPs appeared during the Quiet revolution. In fact many analysts argue that these institutions _are_ the quiet revolution. So a metaphor placing them after it does not fit in. --AlainV 06:38, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)
