ante diem xii kalendas januarias

  • Saturnalia (day 5)
  • Divalia Angeronae -- Angerona was a goddess named for the disease
    angina (she apparently had remedies for it) who also represented
    the 'secret name' of Rome, which presumably could not be uttered
    out of fear it would give Rome's enemies the opportunity to 'call
    out' Rome's own gods (i.e. to get them to abandon the city). Secret
    rituals, of course, would honour her on this date ...
  • 69 A.D. -- Vespasian is officially recognized as emperor by the
  • 253 A.D. -- martyrdom of Themistocles in Lycia
  • 303 A.D. -- martyrdom of Glycerius of Nicomedia

This is just a post to see if it actually gets posted ... I'm having a heck of a morning here ... first my Google News alerts have all fallen silent (problem at their end), my backflip files which have all my shortcuts to news sites are unavailable, my blog program has only posted half of what i sent out so far this a.m. (this is actually to see if it all gets erased since it has disappeared from my local copy on reboot) ... to top it all off, I appear to have an infection in the tip of my index finger (ouch) and my wife just informed me that she accidentally made Folger's instead of the rather more effective Huehuetenango ... i'm not sure I should leave the house.

In any event, if you see weird stuff happening here over the course of the day it's probably me experimenting/trying to fix things.

*** For the record, it did get erased. Dang.

1. n. an abnormal state or condition resulting from the forced migration from a lengthy Classical education into a profoundly unClassical world; 2. n. a blog about Ancient Greece and Rome compiled by one so afflicted (v. "rogueclassicist"); 3. n. a Classics blog.

Publishing schedule:
Rogueclassicism is updated daily, usually before 7.00 a.m. (Eastern) during the week. Give me a couple of hours to work on my sleep deficit on weekends and holidays, but still expect the page to be updated by 10.00 a.m. at the latest.
