Chinese Philosophy has a history of several thousand years.

Message Functions - In GetWiki, to create a new custom message, simply create a page in the GetWiki or "SupportB" namespaces (which is SOHOdb here, as we do not use "MediaWiki"), named "GetWiki:Message" or "SOHOdb:Message", which contains the text of the message. You might consider protecting the messages you create (if you have administrator privileges), and remember, each...

"Plug" Simplicity - Does anybody really need all those links and functions? Sometimes, I'm not so sure, and some wiki software is far more bare-bones, much prettier to look at.

In mathematics, a binary relation (or a dyadic relation) is an arbitrary association of elements of one set with elements of another (perhaps the same) set. An example is the "divides" relation between the set of prime numbers P and the set of integers Z, in which every prime p is associated to every integer z that is a multiple of p. In this...
