Greetings to the Gentles across the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for December, detailing what is
new in the Florilegium this month.
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.
The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org
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.
Also, to help cover the overhead of running the Florilegium site I have
added a PayPal donation button on the top page of the site. You do not have
to have a PayPal account to use this. If you prefer not to use PayPal,
contact me by email and we can arrange something else. The Florilegium
doesn't count as a non-profit in the government's eyes, so your donation is
not tax deductible, but I appreciate it and if you've found the Florilegium
to be useful or interesting through the years,
this is one way to help it continue to do so.

One of my prime concerns currently is to update all files to the new format
which includes several new features such as making links "pickable" and some
disguising of all email addresses to make it harder for the spammer's
programs to harvest email addresses from this site. I support the execution
of any convicted spammer. Yes, I am modifying all 1800+ files as fast as I
can. This means that while I will continue to add new files each month, the
usual amount will be reduced. However, as I update the files to the new
format, I am adding any information I have waiting to go in a file, so there
will be more updated files. Please let me know if you like the new format or
