Apologies in Advance

... I've successfully moved most of the programs over to my laptop now and today there will be much tweaking going on of settings etc. (as well as forwarding stuff to myself for Explorator purposes). So you might see some weird stuff happening from time to time but it's all for the greater good ...

CHATTER: Say What?

Alas ... I've come to expect more from The Age. In a piece on some autograph collector and his collection, we read as 'filler':

The world's most valuable autograph is Julius Caesar's. The Emperor, who is now a salad, is valued at about $A13.5 million.

That is a lot of shekels for some chiselled rock.

Of course, no such autograph is extant. I suspect this might be a running joke with autograph collectors ... only one website (a rapper's blog, actually) has a similar claim but values it at $2 million (US) and adds "because one hasn't been found yet". The actual 'most valuable' autograph according to most sites (such as this one) is William Shakespeare's.

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.
