Stefan's files for January

Poster: Stefan li Rous <stefan@texas.net>


Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for January.  I try to send this to
the maillists around the end of the previous month. Unfortunately, the
holiday season got in the way last month. Hope everyone finds the new files
interesting or useful despite the delay.

I send a copy of this article out earlier to those on my editors list,
usually on the fifth of the previous month. If there are any editors who
are not on my list who would like to be, please send me your name, email
address, group name and newsletter name.

If anyone has suggestions, comments or complaints about these files please
feel free to email me.


A Blending of the Past and Present       

Over the past eight 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 Stefanís Florilegium.

Florilegium - (literally, "a gathering of flowers").  In medieval times, 
Florilegia were collections of choice tidbits (from Ovid, Aristotle, various 
popes, church scholars, etc.) arranged topically. Typically, a florilegium is 
huge, encyclopedic, and contains only choice selections from particular works.

Those of you who have World-Wide-Web (WWW) access can get these files at:

A copy of my complete filelist is available in the Important Stuff section
of the website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me
by email in either Word 6.0 or text formats.

Please be aware that often there is a delay between my announcement of
a new file and itís becoming available at the website.
