March Additions to Stefan's Florilegium

THLord Stefan li Rous has published additions to Stefan's Florilegium for March 2004. Greetings to folks across the Known World!

Here is a copy of the this month's Florilegium article detailing what is new in the Florilegium this month.

I know that some of you had difficulty accessing the Florilegium a week ago. This was a problem with the server computer the Florilegium site was residing on. The server has now had a lot of software upgrades and it has been moved. Currently I am having some trouble with the FTP site I use to upload the new files to the site. Hopefully this will be fixed in the next few days. If you find that a file you want is not there, please feel free to contact me by email and I will gladly send you out a copy by email. Please specify if you want the text, HTML or RTF format.

As usual, I am always looking for additional articles, forwards of good email threads from lists I'm not on, or for volunteers to help edit files and maintain the site.

I will be camping with my barony at the next Gulf Wars in another week or so. Please feel free to drop by and say hi.



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.

I will be at the upcoming Gulf Wars event in Meridies this month. If anyone would like to discuss the Florilegium or anything else, please feel free to drop by my barony's encampment (Barony of Bryn Gwlad, Ansteorra) and ask for me.
