Some day I have to get my act together and say something intelligent on this page, but I've been spending her time learning Wiki trickies and am (still!) not ready to do that.

Basically, a lot of my life focuses on Bulgaria, where I've spent many months recording and documenting "old songs from old ladies". For an introduction to my work, you can:

Neat Tools, etc.[edit]

  • I just discovered a really useful Wikipedia "Help" Cheatsheet—not sure if it's new or not, but I need to set myself a quick "bookmark" to it, so here it is.
  • Here is a neat tool that will show you a complete overview of what I've done on Wikipedia—not all that much, but it's nice to be able to look at it all in one place! You can use the tool to show your own (or any other user's) edits, by replacing my username (Martha_Forsyth) with a different user name. It takes a little while for the tool to assemble the information, patience is a virtue… (Added 16:57, 21 March 2008 (UTC))
  • A tool to check what pages use an image.
  • Now, here is a cool Tool! (Wikipedia's "Book Tool"). Help:Books also looks very useful, but I haven't really studied the structure of all this yet. (Right now it's a bit too overwhelming to do more than contemplate from a distance!)
