Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for August.
If you have written some good documentation for an A&S project or a
paper for an A&S contest or if you have created a handout for a
class, please consider sending them to me for possible inclusion in
the Florlegium. If A&S documentation or a class handout can stand
alone without the actual project or the class, then it may make a
good addition to the Florilegium. My standard policy is that the
copyright remains with the author and will take updates at any time.
This means, for instance, that you can always replace your
documentation with a more polished article later. In the meantime,
folks can still be learning from the work you have done.
I am still looking for employment. If you have found the Florilegium
useful and think my work on it shows characteristics which you think
an employer might also be interested in, please consider linking to
me in Linked-In (www.linkedIn.com) and providing a recommendation. My
profile there is at: http://www.linkedin.com/in/marksharris
I will be at Pennsic again this year, and will be camping with SPCA
in W10, down by the lake, opposite the end of the peninsula and near
Orluk's Oasis. Please feel free to drop by and say hello.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past sixteen 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
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
For those who would like to help support the Florilegium project in
another way, I have added a PayPal donation button on the top page of
the site. Any donations, while not tax deductible, do help pay the
overhead costs of keeping the site running.
