Ave Mari,

I hope all goes well with your grandmother. And yes, animals are great support, aren't they?


Glad Tidings, Then

Salve, Alde Marii -

Glad to hear of your grandmother's recovery. And convey our best to your mother, who must be feeling pretty anxious and overwhelmed, I would think.

Tangentially, each day I notice that you've got the Fasti up before I can even check on them. That's rather better than "patchy fog", I think.

Ut avia tua bene valescat.

Too Fasti for ya?

Salve, mi Iohanne!

As the "something taken up for Lent", a sort of personal mini-vow, I must either post the Fasti or arrange to have them posted every day without fail. I check the Board each night, and will post them that night unless someone has beaten me to it. >({|:-)

It's true that since Grandma got sick I've only been on *once* a night...

Hmm, maybe I should modify my forecast to "dense fog"?

Post nubila,

Marius is on Facebook!!!

Salvete, amici Romani!

I can't believe I let my Ma talk me into this, but...

...Marius is on Facebook!!!

It's a total time-sink and I doubt I'll ever get way deep into it. But I check it every time I log on. If you're already there, look for "Marius Peregrine". (If you're not, look me up anyway, but it'll want you to register.)

(Ma's cooler than me. She got me into Pokémon too!)

In amicitia,

Ah, what a pity that Marius doesn't like children. :lol:

I have a feeling this will change once the newbie arrives! Congratulations!

Congratulations on the new arrival!

Salvete, Amici -

Thanks to Gaius Aelius Ericius for taking time to have coffee with me today; it was nice to meet another Sodalis face to face and compare notes. This can't happen too often with us spread out all over the world!

Do you two live in the same vicinity? What's he like?

Finally made it to the new forum...

((( IO!! ))) He's Here!!

Salve, mi Tarquini! What've you been up to? Did you have any trouble finding us?

How do you like the new Forum so far? Your frater Tiberius is on the prowl for some alternate Board 'skins'; if this "ProSilver" theme isn't your thing, we should have more options soon. Best feature: The Collegia are waking up again, which excites me far more than any technical or cosmetic achievements! >({|:-)

In amicitia et fide,

Thx, I liked the old color Marius, but the new lay-out doesn't bother me :)

Salve iterum, mi Tarquini, et Salvete omnes!

What if you could get the old color *with* the new layout? <g> is a "demo Board" for the currently-available BB3 styles. You can go there, click on a drop-down list (way upper right-hand corner), and preview the styles. Click around, navigate like you would on a real Board, and let us know what you like! >({|:-)

In fide,

The New Cub

Congratulationes Marii mi !

Belated congratulations on your becoming an UNCLE. You'll have to give up all that silly nonsense and start behaving like a grown up. You have RESPONSABILITIES now.

Say hello to the 'cub' from me. Tell her that she has to change that name though, ASAP. Darla Ana, now that is not a proper Roman name, is it ?

Vale optime,

Ave Peregrine,

:mrgreen: Thanks for the ''job offer''. I could do with some sleep. :mrgreen:

:idea: according to my atlas the USA has about eight times as many Sparta's as Greece ... but none of them in Texas :!: :?:

:( Yes, I still working on that linking business. The info is 'out there', I know. Looks good though, doesn't it ? :?

Ed. note: Click 'Edit' on this post, look at the code and see how I linked to the 'job offer'. Spooky, ain't I?] (Omnes, tell me he wasn't asking for it!)

zzzz....*snork* - startle - "Huh??"

Salve iterum, Formose Percite!

Ohh, you'll sleep all a zombie, once every eight days or so. And your dreams will be plagued with ideas for the site's Next Biggest Project. Your daily conversation will be about Board stats when it's not about pets, health and the weather. All research not related to Web code will fall by the wayside. You'll be an excellent admin, and almost useless as a Sodalis otherwise. >({|;-]

And Curli-Su is NOTmean!!!

...Thus sayeth the Webmaster. >({|3-| hmph!

Off to commit more Spammicidal acts,

Tangent alert ! Tangent alert ! Beep eep eep

Salve amice,

I do have a look at your site regularly, I swear, but ... I used to be a rather attentive reader, until I met you guys. Nowadays I read a lot of things in an haphazard, erratic way. That's progress for you, hè ? That's the blessings of the internet. I switch over to your site from time to time, read a page or a few lines, look at a couple of pictures, and then jump to somewhere else. I pick up little snippets of information, here, there and everywhere, and half an hour later I have no idea anymore where I have read such and such.

I saw the Legio IX Hispana mentioned on your web page, had a quick look - they at least seemed to have some fun in reenacting, those guys - and I thought it fitted perfectly into the Formosi Furiosi line, so.... But of course, you are right, how stupid of me to overlook the VI Victrix. So the Legio VI Victrix Pia Fidelis it is then from now on. I like that name.

I know I have no say at all in this, 'The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away', but may I dare to ask if we could keep the Formosi Furiosi line as much as possible in the pure madcap (?) comedy style ? Don't bother about real facts ? Of course, you are free to do whatever you like. You are the WEBMASTER and I your humble servant.

I sure like to know a bit more about you. I guess there's still quite a bit about you on your own site I haven't had a thorough enough look at, but anyway...
I'm sorry if I mistook you for a 'kid' (that is, somebody who has about 20 years less on the counter than me). That would just about fit in with what I know of you so far, assuming you were still a 'real kid' when you went to the East to fight the Babylonians and Assyrians. (I hope at least I have understood that bit correctly. It is sometimes hard to distinguish facts from fiction in this Roman cyberworld.)

You certainly don't look a day older than 30 in those pictures I've seen. And you don't sound a day older than 12, so .... young you are, where the Furiosii are concerned. The Walls I am defending are not the British ones, but those North of Antverpia, which I build all by myself, single handedly, to keep those barbarian Batavians out. And cream soda ? Are you MAD ? Honey mead, yes, but my wife doesn't brew that. We're in Belgica here, so beer it is, nothing else. Be a man, hold your nose and gulp it down. And just pretend you like it, for Xanthippe's sake (and mine, she'll kill me if I bring home someone who doesn't like her beer).

I read all your posts anyway. So maybe we could have a more serious – but not too - conversation in another place ? Why not here ? Looking forward to hearing more, and I promise I will check out your site more thoroughly next time.

But ... there is the CHICKEN, finally, TBTG. I sure hope Iohannes will make it in time to join our little meal. But if he is too busy and occupied otherwise, we can just start, there is plenty of food anyway in case he decides to drop in later.

So tell me, are you a breast man or a leg man ?

In amicitia,
