What's New?

Last Updated: April 13, 2013


NOTE: If you wish to donate photographs, videos, music, bardic pieces, etc., please see Submissions Guidelines. HvH -- September, 2011

Noting that I haven't been updating as often as I'd like ... life's been busy which is a big part of it. I have in the stack to be processed: I will get to these as time permits, really. I am not ignoring anything that's been sent me, but time is a factor ... please keep your eye out to see if I've updated anything, and if I have, feel free to send those corrections. And many thanks to those who have donated photos over the years -- without you, this site would be rather dull. ~ Hirsch

More enhancements! The Who's Who now has a section (to the right of the "Photos" section) where those who have reigned (Royalty, Baron/ess, etc.) or held offices in the SCA can be shown. This is helpful to track what jobs people have held, etc. It is stored in a table in a database used by the Who's Who, but is automatically generated each time the Who's Who pages are generated. View your entry, send new items or update information ...! If there are positions you have held that are not listed, please drop me a note (local Seneschal, for example) with details -- branch (if appropriate), job title, and start date (month/year).

*** NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW ***

I am in the process of working with Coppermine to allow users (you!) to upload albums of photos, without passing through me (no need to send CDs or email photos to me ...). This will simplify the process of getting photos up on this site for people to peruse. Special thanks to Kingdom IT (Aurora Komnene) for being helpful and responsive as I tried to get the basics going. Also thanks to Otto Spilman in the Far West for suggesting Coppermine based on his own experience, and willingness to give me a hand understanding how some of this works.
