Greetings to the Gentles of Known World,

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

I am always looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you have  
researched a little known subject in our period or you practice a  
little known art or craft, writing an article is an excellent way to  
introduce others to the work you've done. I'm especially interested in  
academic papers written for A&S contests because, unfortunately, few  
have time at such an event to read them. Even the judges. Getting them  
published in the Florilegium lets your hard word benefit the entire  
Known World.

I have just heard that the GeoCities free websites are going away. If  
you have such a site with SCA-type files and don't wish to move to the  
pay version, the files that you have worked so hard to produce, may  
make a good addition to the Florilegium. I am in the process of moving  
several articles on tablet weaving by Eve the Just from GeoCities to  
the Florilegium and would be happy to consider more.

Mundanely, I am an Electronics Engineer with a specialty in designing  
and delivering board and systems level projects. Unfortunately, I'm  
still in the middle of what has been a long search for my next  
opportunity. If you are on LinkedIn and believe that I have shown any  
skills in creating and running the Florilegium that a perspective  
employer might find appealing, I would appreciate you submitting a  
recommendation for me there. My LinkedIn profile can be found at:

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past nineteen 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 collection of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

The Florilegium is on the web at:

I have added an RSS feed for the Florilegium website. If you are  
already reading RSS feeds, please add the Florilegium RSS feed to find  
out when new and updated files as well as new features get added to  
the website. If you are unfamiliar with RSS, or Real Simple  
Syndication, it is a method built into many web browsers, and also  
available as a separate tool, which alerts you when the contents of  
your favorite websites have been changed.

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. A&S documentation and class  
handouts will also often work out well. I am especially interested in  
A&S papers.
