Should redirect pages have the same category as the page they're redirecting to? 21:03, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

No, redirect pages should not be categorized (that would just put duplicate pages in the categories). -- relet 21:05, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Aww, are you going to move The Algorithm? Is nothing sacred? -Robyn 18:24, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

I just checked the Google Finance page. The article notes the tag will be labelled <span id="ref_983582_op">99,999.99. I just checked the page source, and no such tag exists. Rather there is a <span id="ref_983582_l">99,999.99 tag. Can anyone else confirm this? -- 02:33, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Randomness: Meerly looking at the position of all the positions is probably inadequate for determining randomness. The points would need to be measured against other points from nearby dates. Still, I'm just being nit-picky, the algorithm is random enough for me :) 06:35, 9 August 2011 (EDT)

Question: The Dow Jones opening time is Monday to Friday 09:30:00-05:00 or 09:30:00-04:00 (EST/EDT; reference city in this timezone: New York). Correct? Tungmar (talk)

Correct. However, in addition to Saturdays and Sundays, there are also Dow holidays. --Fippe (talk) 07:17, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
