Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,
Here is a copy of my monthly Florilegium article for September.
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 have recently added several good handouts that I got at Pennsic
classes I attended, after getting permission from the teachers to do
so. Since I could only attend a fraction of the classes which were
available there, I'm sure there are plenty of other useful,
interesting handouts I haven't seen. If you taught a class at Pennsic
and provided a handout for your class, I'd like to consider adding
your handout as well.
I am still looking for employment as an Electronics Engineer. 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
then providing a recommendation. My profile there is at: http://
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
