Summary of Stuff I Maintain
This site is big. In fact, by now I think it's fair to say that, as personal
Web pages go, it's really big. So, in order to make it a little
easier for people to understand what's here, I provide this concise list.
Note that this list is far from comprehensive: it does not include most
of my "house", most of which is simply links to outside sites. I encourage
you to wander around the house, and see what's there. I do include
here just a few such pages, which seem to be particularly useful. Also,
this listing is only "top" pages; many of these have dozens of sub-pages
beneath them. Note that I didn't write the content in all of these; some
were written by others, and I HTMLified them and maintain them on the Web.
So, in no particular order...
The Medieval and Renaissance Games Homepage,
which attempts to gather in one place all online information on early games.
This contains vast numbers of files, including transcriptions of period
sources, reconstructions of period games, and bibliographies on the subject.
The home page of the Barony of Carolingia,
my local SCA branch. Related to this, I have a great deal of information
on the Borough of Felding, which
is Wellesley College's branch.
For many, many years, I have been running the Rolls
Ethereal, the "phone book" for SCAdians on the Net. The current version
(3.0) is an entirely-automated simple Webbed database; one of these days,
I will come out with a much-faster 4.0 version.
I maintain the SCA FAQ, a few of the most-commonly-asked
questions we get at the SCA Home Page.
A number of years ago, I wrote The Provost's Handbook,
a guide to running an SCA college branch, and particularly on how to do
effective college demos.
I transcribed much of the Historical Corpora and
Bylaws of the early days of the SCA.
A rather nice article on Camping in the SCA, including
a couple of good beef jerky recipes.
I run the web page for the Grand Council of the SCA. This
is currently pretty behind-the-times, and will get handed off to someone
else fairly soon.
Back in the early days of the SCA Membership Crisis a few years back, I
wrote an episode of Pinky and the Brain satirizing the mess, called Payment
My Netscape and MSIE Bookshelf. This one really
is just a collection of links, but it's a very useful one; it's
where I put all references I find useful on the subject of Web technology.
A crazy theory about neural networks, which
I cooked up some years ago and have never had the time to properly explore.
One of these days I want to examine it in more depth; if I'm right, it
could be a big improvement over traditional models.
Tabula Rasa was a Live-Action Roleplaying Game
that I and a couple of friends have written and run twice (so far).
Flip-Flush is a simple card game that I designed.
