Greetings to the Known World,

Here is a copy of my monthly article detailing what is new in my
Florilegium files.

I am currently behind in uploading the new and updated files to the
website by about 60 files. I hope to have this completed in the next
or so. So if a file mentioned below is not there, please check back in a
few more days.

The latest HTML formatted files have a new format. Please let me
know if you like it or not or if you have suggestions.

If you are going to Gulf Wars, please feel free to look me up if
you have comments about the Florilegium. My device is on the
Florilegium page and I should be camping with my barony.


A Blending of the Past and Present       

Over the past ten 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 website now has a new address. It is:
The old address will work for at least another few months.

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 6.0 or text formats.

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.
