Here is a copy of my monthly article for August, detailing what is
new in the Florilegium this month.

If you are an SCA newsletter editor and would like to get this
article for publication on the fifth of the month, instead of at the
end of the month (or in this case the beginning of the next month),
please contact me.

For those journeying to Pennsic this year, I hope to meet some of
you there. If you have any comments or suggestions on the Florilegium,
please look me up there. I will be camping with the SPCA group on the
north side of the lake.


A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past eleven 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

Files that are new or have been updated are indicated by a special
marker in the filelists at the website. In addition, the file
-updated-files is a listing of these files in chronological order.

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.
