Hi Greg, and welcome to Wikipedia.

The info I have on Ravenscroft's "A Treatise of Music" is from the article in Grove (vol 15 p 624) and it gives the source as MS, Lbm Add.19758). Lbm means "British Library, formerly British Museum (Reference Division)" (from the Library Sigla list at the front of the volume). I haven't seen it myself, unfortunately. Hope this helps, and we'd love to have you contribute more to Wikipedia... right now I'm just about the only one writing on musicology topics in the 17th c. Cheers, Antandrus 00:42, 14 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Excellent, I hope you're able to get a copy of the thesis. (I wish we'd had Google when I was in grad school...) Antandrus 05:40, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)

a random query[edit]

Why is there no Church of Wumpus article? Are you still giving money to people who catch you on IRC? --moof 14:35, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Nobody ever tried to collect money, for that or for my bounty for anyone catching me posting to Usenet during business hours! Greg 02:52, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

Welcome from Ravedave[edit]

I noticed you never got a welcome message, so...

Welcome!

Avoiding Information Loss[edit]

Thank you for your note. I don't remember what my reasoning was over a year ago and whether I removed that sentence intentionally or not. A look at the Internet Archive indicates that the external website may not have contained any information linking their software to Legion. Maybe, for everything I knew, it could have been a link spammer; but that is speculation, my memory isn't that good. Rl 07:13, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Perhaps Wikipedia needs a better way of contacting the guy who wrote the info, since I added that info to Wikipedia and am an expert on the topic. But the edit history was orphaned when the page was split. Greg 05:33, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Wendy Northcutt article[edit]

Hi Greg, nice to meet you. I put the interview back in and added stuff from another interview and a lnk of hers to an essay about civil rights, this should make it a more interesting article and give a rounded picture of Northcutt. Take a look, I hope you like it.Regards,Rich 03:15, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

Greg Lindahl article[edit]

I've created an article for you. Is there any more biographical or other information which is appropriate to include? How about the picture http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/pics/pillar.gif or some other? Fourdee 20:56, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, Fourdee, but I think the Wikipedia rule against editing one's own article probably means I shouldn't give you any content. It does leave off most of my professional credentials, like invited conference talks and published articles. Greg 19:38, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Galliard illustration[edit]

I wonder if you could shed any light on this: the illustration on the Galliard article shows a 15th century painting. Do you know by what authority the illustration is thought to be a galliard? I'm not sure how far back the dance goes, but the illustration seemed to be too early to me. As far as I know, the earliest description of the galliard was by Calmeta around 1497-1500 (cited in Barbara Sparti's introduction to Compass' Ballo della Gagliarda), perhaps musical sources go back earlier than that? Looking at it I suppose it could be an early galliard, but it could be a lot of other things too! It would be great if you could either enlighten me on the 15th century galliard, or provide enough evidence to justify removing the illustration. Thanks. -Insouciance 14:57, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

I'd never classify that image as a galliard and I would laugh at any expert who labeled it so. And I don't know of any musical galliards that are really early. But it's impressive that you've actually read Sparti's intro to Compasso! Now that's rare. Greg 02:48, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

The Recorder[edit]

A tag has been placed on The Recorder, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert notability may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and if you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (below the existing db tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm its subject's notability under the guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Ohconfucius 08:14, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Your user page[edit]

I found your old user page while checking out some old deleted contributions. I have history merged it, so that all edits are in one place. Hope you don't mind. Graham87 15:37, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hello Greg,

Just thought I'd say hello, I know you're a PBM expert - so if you fancied improving the Legends (PBM) article that would be cool.

EdwardLane (talk) 14:18, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

No thanks, I don't think Legends should get a Wikipedia article at all. Greg (talk) 05:25, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
