Here is a copy of my monthly Florilegium article for January, detailing what is new in the Florilegium this month.
I attempt to sent this to all of the Kingdom mail lists as well as a few others each month. Because of increased anti-spam activities over the past few years, I can not always send this directly to all of these lists. In those cases, I depend upon deputies in those kingdoms, who get this article by email, to pass it on to the lists. Looking at my records, it looks like some of the email to these deputies is bouncing and I don't have any deputies for some kingdoms. Here are the kingdom lists I am having problems with. If you are one of my deputies and your email has changed, please contact me. If a list doesn't have a deputy, and you are interested in doing this, please contact me.
Also, I would like to have a backup deputy for each list. These folks would also get my article by email, but hold off sending it until they see that the regular deputy hasn't posted it. I'm trying to not bombard a list with multiple messages, yet get the article to the folks on those lists. If you are interested in helping out in this way, again please contact me.
* Artemsia - need a deputy
* Atenveldt - was being done by Baroness Christy, but it is bouncing
* Ealdormere - need a deputy
* Middle Kingdom - was being done by Kahlen, but it is bouncing
* West Kingdom - was being done by Baroness Christy, but her email is bouncing
Thank you for everyone who is working as my deputy for a list. I'm sorry that the increasing amount of spam is making these anti-spam measures needed. Personally, I think many of the punishments mentioned in the punishments-msg file in the Florilegium might be appropriate for any convicted spammers.
As usual, if you have any comments, complaints or suggestions about the Florilegium please feel free to contact me.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past fourteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make this information available to others, I have placed this information in a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.
I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for more details.
I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials, editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more details.
