Greetings to gentles across the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for October, detailing what is
new in the Florilegium this month.
I am always looking for new material for the Florilegium. If you have
written an article for a local newsletter, or created a class handout
or some A&S documentation which will stand alone without the class or
A&S object, please consider sending a copy for the Florilegium. This is
one way to share what you have done with the rest of the Known World
and this way your effort goes further and everyone benefits.
If you are an editor and would like to get on my list to get a copy of
this article several weeks in advance so you can meet your publication
deadlines, please contact me. I also have a version formated just for
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

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 have
