Hiya mate. Thanks for this edit to the Centre for Fire, Explosive and Environment Safety article. I was just wondering if there are any other CFEES's around, since otherwise, there isn't need to add India to the name. Cheers. Sniperz11talk|edits 19:55, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
- Yes, you do have a pint there. This is an observation that others have also made with similar pages. But I think we can solve that without renaming the organization. I've made a small edit, which I think should be ok... is it acceptable to you? Cheers and Thanks. Sniperz11talk|edits 06:37, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Tog (unit), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Thermal conductance (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)
