Hail the list!
As I am both new to this list and to the study of the VMs, I would like to
introduce myself. My name is Ted Young. I live in (very) upstate NY. I
have been in the Computer Science field for over 8 years now. I have a
strong background in various computer languages, technologies and platforms.
Also, I have studied linguistics off and on since fourth grade, when I
learned my first language (after English of course); Ancient Egyptian.
Unfortunately, the first time I crossed paths with the VMs was only last
week, when I stumbled across an article about Gordon Rugg's work with a
Cardan Grille. I did a little research into the VMs and immediately became
enraptured by its mystery and charm. Over the last ten days, I have been
scouring the internet reading every article I can find on the subject. When
I found this E-List, I decided to give it a try. I was very happy to find
it still, seemingly, active.
I can honestly say that I will not be the one that figures out the secret to
decoding the VMs, but I would love to contribute what I can and will really
enjoy the ride.
I have spent a lot of time working from Stolfi's website, and the many
sites linked from his page. I have also been to the The European Voynich
Manuscript Transcription Project homepage where I got a copy of the Eva font
and the latest Interlinear file (though it seems that Stolfi's version has a
lot more in it, please correct me if I am wrong). Are their any other
resources I should be reading to get myself caught up with the latest
advances in this field?
