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 
web publication.

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 
any suggestions.

Here are the new files for this month:

In the ANIMALS section:

                            Aoife Finn of Ynos Mon.
