Apologies for the super-extended hiatus!

I got caught up in the final paper and the thesis (which is done, whew!) and decided I better cut myself off from the blogging world. Every time I thought I had a moment to notify people of this, I realized I'd get sucked back in (it didn't help that I'd feel obligated to wade through the hundreds of e-mails sitting in my inbox now from the various Classics related lists I'm on :-P). And when that was done, I was faced with a spotty internet connection. Eheu.

So anyway, apologies. I shall attempt to update more regularly again!

Two things I definitely wanted to post about, though:

-Rome Reborn, which you really just have to click on and see for yourself. But it's 3D Rome and amazingly well done.

-Harvard's Latin Salutatory Address--for the Star Wars fan, super amusing. Because Latin and Star Wars seem naturally to go together in my head anyway (don't ask).

I hope these humble gifts are enough to excuse my extended absence.

Internet situation is still a bit spotty, but I shall try my best to catch up and keep up!

I love that you are back. I find your blog inspiring as a wannabe classicist!

I think I didn't tell you this before and now that I'm banned from Internet use except at work, congrats on graduating!

I'm so looking forward to seeing you again this summer.

And, Jasper Fforde today. Don't worry, you'll get your book even if I have to pry it out of someone else's hands!

Not just back, but bouncing with pent-up bloglust!


Kind of guessed you went cold turkey. Mind you, it does raise the problem of cyber-relations - if your only contact is through the web and that contact is cut, you have no way of learning what's behind a disappearance.

And if the reason is bad, like death, how do you dispose of your cyber-identities and remains (writings, pix, etc)?

Hello, Uncle P. here. I do not have your e-mail address, but wanted to thank you for the coffee machine. We have it installed in the Common Room and it works a treat!

Leah: Thanks!! I'm so glad you're enjoying the blog. Apologies for disappearing a second time!

Kristin: Thanks, I WILL see you soon!

Choppa: Thank you, and apologies too! I've wondered the same thing myself many times, but I don't plan on dying anytime soon, so hopefully I won't have to deal with that. Oh wait, if I'm dead, I won't anyway! ;-)

Uncle P: You're quite welcome! I'll get somebody to give me your e-mail and shoot you an e-mail from my new e-mail (ow that hurt). I miss all of you!!
