The old timers refer to it as "IKA", or "inter-kingdom anthropology." :-)
Justin, yes me, not the other Justin
Speaking of "not me, the other Justin"....
I telecommute for an engineering consultancy; that is, I work at home. So
yesterday I'm sitting at my desk setting up a source code repository for
a project, and the phone rings. "Hello," says the caller, "I'm calling
about the SCA. I'm a newcomer, and my name is Justin."
So I tell him my name is Justin, too, and we have a laugh about that. Then
I realize it might be the other Justin from the SCANewcomers list, and I
ask him about that. He's never heard of this list. So it's not the Justin
to whose note I have just replied.
Do you people realize the meaning of this? There are now THREE OF US! Plus
there is another Justin who volunteers for the "questions at sca.org" email
The rest of you are *not* needlessly paranoid -- it's really happening.
It *is* a vast Justin-wing conspiracy, and we *are* insinuating ourselves
into the halls of power.
"Soon, we shall rule the world! BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!"

- <<< I'm very new to the SCA . I just join friday and I would very much like info on what I should do next . Thank you. >>>
Well, what interested you in the SCA? You like doing crafts things? You like the romance of the Middle Ages? You like to try to bash people with wooden clubs? You like to sew? With some idea of your interests we can probably point you to some info.
Need a place to look through some information online? If so, you might wish to start with the files in the NEWCOMERS section of my Florilegium website at: http://www.florilegium.org There are a couple of dozen other subject areas and currently about 2300 different files there, so hopefully you will find some files of interest.
Be careful though. Several people have told me about going there for a "quick look" at something and suddenly realizing they had been looking at stuff for an hour. :-)
PS: And if you enjoy what's there, please click on an ad or two, so I can keep it going.
