A most wonderful New Year to everyone! Here is a copy of my Florilegium article, detailing what is new in the Florilegium this month.
Because of vandals attacking the Florilegium site (denial of service attacks), I am having some trouble currently updating the files there. So a few of these files are not there yet. I will get them online as soon as I am able to. If you find some of these criminals, the punishments-msg file has some good, useful info on what to do to them.
If you are an editor of an SCA newsletter and you would like to get a copy of this article a month in advance, so you have time for your publication leadtimes, please contact me with your SCA and mundane names, your group and newsletter name and the email address you wish me to send it to.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past thirteen 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.
A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me by email in either Word or text formats.
If you find a bad link or other problem with the Florilegium website, please let me know. Once I know about a problem I can usually fix it that day but if no one alerts me to a problem it may be months before I notice it myself.
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.
