Here is a copy of my monthly article describing what is new in my Florilegium
Please note that there is also a new address for the Florilegium. However, a
duplicate set of indexes will still reside at the old texas.net address for
a while longer. We also lost the server at the new site to a thunderstorm in
the last week. I am told that we should be back online in another day or so.
In the meantime, those files that still reside on the old server can still
be reached using the old texas.net URL:
If you have any suggestions or criticisms of the Florilegium, please let me
know. If you have trouble downloading a file (other than this current
problem at florilegium.org) please let me know. I can usually fix the
problem within a few minutes of being notified. It is a shame to have a
file unavailable to everyone for six months simply because no one notified
me and I didn't notice the problem myself.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past nine 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: http://www.florilegium.org
The old texas.net 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.
