You can find more information about me on my website, including more recent and more ancient photos, since the one at right is no longer accurate.

Barbershop articles

I have noticed a serious lack of good information about current and past barbershop quartets and choruses[1] here. Being in both a quartet[2] and a chorus[3] myself, I figure I should do something about it. These are related articles I have either worked on or created:

Media contributions

As an avid photographer[4], I have a large library of relatively decent photographs on many subjects. Most of them are suitable in some way or another for the Commons[5]; it's just a matter of digging through them and finding articles that could really benefit. I also enjoy making diagrams[6][7], though it's a more time-consuming process. I will gladly consider any photography or diagramming requests!

I've just made a little gallery of my contributions, and I'm too lazy to edit the above paragraph to work that fact in.


  • /monobook.css — My stylesheet, now with actual style! Preview here. Definitely a work in progress; comments welcome.
  • /Les Noces — Hopefully this will turn into a real article soon.
  • /Sandbox — There probably isn't anything very interesting here.
  • /Gallery — Various photos and drawings that I have contributed. Most are available on the Commons.
  • mwvd — Use vimdiff to view MediaWiki diffs until they're working properly.

A signature suggestion

Since a few people have found this handy, I figured I'd write it up. If you've got a custom signature and would like to be able to spot it more easily in long, rambling discussions, give this a try:

  1. Wrap your entire signature in <span class="user-sig user-USERNAME">...</span>, substituting in your username. The user- prefix will help keep your CSS class unique, and the user-sig can be used to highlight signatures in pages, if you'd like.
  2. Add a line like user-USERNAME { background: #DFD; } to your monobook.css to make your signature highlighted, again substituting in your username.
  3. Save and test, tweak and hack!

If you have any questions, you know where to ask! —HorsePunchKid 23:42, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
