east coast where I've lived in many of them, but is
this true in the midwest, and outside of the States?
I'm sure Paul has Slovo subscribers elsewhere, yes?
The Electronic Journal is a good idea, but perhaps
there should be a transitory period to help the
subscribers adjust - if we can give Paul enough
articles to put out a couple of editions!
I do know how to do research (although biology was my
specialty), but have too many things going on to do so
right away; I will have to read some back-issues on
the site before I can say how long it will take me to
study up on something enough to research an area of

terribly expensive, at least in Gdansk, in February,
but that could add up after a while, and we kept
finding out that advertised or previously used (on
other trips by friends) internet cafes had closed
down, and new ones popped up elsewhere, sort of like
that carnival game with the gophers...and I suspect
printing fees might be higher than we are used to in
the states, too.

representative of a group _not_ in the SCA but
interested in regional costuming; specifically
Norwegian and Swedish (I seem to recall). She went to
a Costuming Convention (Science Fiction affiliated,
but with historical clothing equally represented) that
I also was at (working), and attended a lecture on
Norwegian costuming. (When I dig up my notes, I'll
share the URLs and other easily shared info). The
right printout of SLOVO would have been a good thing
to share on that occasion. I think I have a flyer
from that group, but the best occasion is past...
well, will you look at the time!
