Here is a copy of my article for the March It Cometh for those interested:

Is there any interest in having me post my SCA Rialto Filelist here in
small chunks, spread over time so it doesn't fill up anyone's mailbox
to overflowing?

A Blending of the Past and Present       

Here is the list of my featured SCA Rialto files for this month. I have 
files for all interests. If none of the files below interest you, ask for 
a copy of my complete file list. If you would like a copy of any of these 
files, just let me know. I can print them on paper for you, copy them 
to a computer disk or send them by email.

Those of you who have World-Wide-Web (WWW) access can also get these 
files at:
