If you find this page elsewhere[edit]

I wrote this page for Wikipedia-en (Wikipedia, English language) - if you find it on a site that says something along the lines of "This page retrieved from", then you are looking at a copy, and not necessarily an up-to-date one - as is the case with many a page on this site, of course.

Licensing Note[edit]

I agree to multi-license all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:

Biographical material, and other such[edit]

Note since I've noticed some variation here- if I've left a comment on your talk page I generally do not add your talk page to my watchlist (I'm not consistent about this)- I'll check my contributions list from time to time etc., but for prompt response please leave a comment on my talk page. (If I seem to be on hiatus judging from my contributions and the like, feel free to mail me.)

Personal information can be found in various places in the external links; I'm a part-time this and that and music-lover from the New York State area. My main interests are in certain areas of classical music, especially lesser-known sorts which does influence what I am writing.

I did get my degree such as it was in Maths and have not wholly left that field. I spent several summers during my undergrad years at math programs, one of them studying topics in Matroids, which have continued to hold some interest for me. I tried that summer, in a REU — Research Experiences for Undergraduates program — to invent and study something which turned out to be a special case of something that already existed, but that's how the cookie crumbles.

I'm also very much into a few other subjects and try to become knowledgeable about them, I may try at least to contribute to some discussions elsewhere.

As of June 20 2005 I'm a Wikipedia admin and will do what I can to be work in a manner consistent with the responsibilities of the role. If we've come into conflict about it I hope we can talk about it.

You can see my administrative (and some other) actions in list form here. (written Jun 20 '05)

And I do often seem ungracious - which I can blame on nothing but myself - let me at least say thank you to people who've engaged me in such interesting conversation here. I love this place and the atmosphere it creates.

(and much appreciated.) (Edit: yes, the now famous curious-looking red star.)

I, Flcelloguy, do hereby award the first Barnstar of High Culture to Schissel for his excellent contributions to the Wikipedia articles related to classical music. Keep up the good work!

A bit of additional.[edit]

Though it is very far from being the fact of my life, I suppose it also behooves a person to know that I have Asperger syndrome. It is neither the meaning of my life nor is it something off in the distance with no influence on it, rather the fact that this has been in my life for years, affects (not determines, again) how I see things.

Articles written[edit]

I have begun the following pages in basically reverse chronological order — some are stubs, some are mostly or entirely translations of uncopyrighted material (generally from other Wikipedias) but are meant to provide for a lack in this Wikipedia and to be built on (and I intend to build on them myself, since I have other resources that are non-c/GFDL but found elsewhere- by which I mean, GFDL but not found on Wikipedia, out-of-(c) but not found on the net, etc.).

I generally work on these on my Temporary page, which see..


Temporary pages for personal reference[edit]

Some things to make Navigation & Editing Easier[edit]

You can help improve the articles listed below! This list updates frequently, so check back here for more tasks to try. (See Wikipedia:Task Center for brief guides.)

Help counter systemic bias by creating new articles on important women.

Help improve popular low quality articles.

Other links I always need...

Will be including some other things here soon. For instance, that there's useful info in meta:Help:Variable.

(Before attempting tables I need to learn how to use WP's approach to table-bounding, so I'll just list these here... some of these can be done using the character list at the bottom of the edit page of course.)

Á á À à Ä ä  â Æ æ ß Ç ç É é È è Ë ë Ê ê Í í Ì ì Ï ï Î î Ñ ñ Ó ó ő Ø ø Ò ò Ö ö Ô ô ř Ú ú Ù ù Ü ü Û û ß (ah, here it is, thanks, listing it twice because I needed the entity version - szlig - of beta.) Œ œ (are also useful)♭ ♯ n°

Another such chart and a useful one Transfer to links later

Since e.g. recently changed the format/location of all of its categories for year-of-birth (equivalent to m:en:1950 births), one way to find those categories is to go to- e.g. again, not everywhere but not just on ru -

Category:1950 - then if there's an interwiki to ru: (and if it goes to the right place) take that. Or go to m:ru:1950 (which redirects) and to the category link at the bottom (m:ru:Категория:1950 год) which has as one of its subcats, births in 1950- choose a year for which you know a birth (1833, Brahms, say!) and Bob's your uncle.

Removed from Personal Watchlist - help for searching for material:

As to translation, my specialty relatively speaking is French, sort of, or it was, and there are articles (good ones??? will check) on Wolfgang Fortner, Giovanni Vitali, Michaël Levinas, among others in that Wikipedia to begin by translating-from. (Ways of looking for an article- will write about this on my user page, it's good to know if one doesn't already- check categories, check 'what links here' since to find a article on Violin Sonata no. 2 (Schumann) in most Wikipedias see if it's among the "links to" that Wiki's version of Robert Schumann, a good author would include a link to Schumann and a link to the date of composition in the article..., check search engines - google is helpful for multi-language search- be creative and look for language-independent terms as much as possible of course... etc.
