      Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

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

      Last month, when I sent that month's article to the mail lists, I
      mentioned that I was looking for a job as an Electronics Engineer. I
      want to thank those of you who emailed me and offered support and
      suggestions and to mention that I started what looks to be a wonderful
      job at Celestica, designing server computers for IBM, earlier this
      week. That is one of the reasons I'm a few days late getting this
      article to the lists.

      I'm also looking for someone to act as my representative for the Middle
      Kingdom. The main thing I need is someone to forward this monthly
      article to that kingdom's mail list, as it doesn't seem to be getting
      to that list, since I'm getting bounce messages. I'd actually like to
      get two volunteers so I have a backup for this.

      And lastly, if anyone has any suggestions, comments or criticisms about
      the Florilegium please feel free to send them to me. Also, if find a
      bad link in the Florilegium, please let me know. Sometimes a bad link
      has been there for months, yet if I know about them, I can often fix
      them the day I'm notified.


      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 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

      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.
