Greetings to gentles across the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for November, detailing what
is new in the Florilegium this month.
If you have any comments, criticisms or suggestions for the Florilegium
please feel free to email them to me.
After 22 years at Motorola/Freescale Semiconductor as a printed circuit
board designer I was recently laid off. What this means is that I am
now having to watch my expenses much closer than I have been. The
Florilegium is a continuing expense but I would like to keep making it
available. If you have enjoyed the Florilegium site over the years and
found it useful, please consider using the PayPal donation button I
have added to the top page of the site. Unfortunately, the donation is
not tax deductible for you.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past fourteen 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 more details.
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

One of my prime concerns currently is to update all files to the new
format which includes several new features such as making links
"pickable" and some disguising of all email addresses to make it
harder for the spammer's programs to harvest email addresses from this
site. I support the execution of any convicted spammer. Yes, I am
modifying all 1800+ files as fast as I can. This means that while I
will continue to add new files each month, the usual amount will be
reduced. However, as I update the files to the new format, I am adding
any information I have waiting to go in a file, so there will be more
updated files. Please let me know if you like the new format or have
