The "Scion FRS" is of course known as the 86 in JDM and elsewhere (GT86 in Europe) which is actually why it's got the "86" badge on it.

+It's Okay To Be Smart  Hi. Yeah this is not quite right in several respects. Romulus and Numa Pompilius are both probably, not maybe, mythical kings of Rome, and even if they were not, you can't just ascribe "Romulus did this" and "Numa did that". Any such story told about them by the Romans themselves is essentially myth - its written by antiquarians, historians, poets, fabulists, politicians, philosophers, biographers and other such writers hundreds of years after the events are supposed to have taken place. Also "Romulan Republic". OK you want to make the Star Trek joke I get it, but a republic led by a king? Give the word - res publica, public matters - derives from the Romans themselves and involves the overthrow of the kings and the foundation of the republic ... not exactly advisable. You could mention the chaos of the calendars of the Greek city states, they had many different intercalary systems, month names, month numbers and year boundaries! But really the story has to start with what the calendar was in use in the late republic and how Julius Caesar reformed it because the late republic is the only real place from which we have definite verifiable information.

The wikipedia article (where you may have gotten this information from?)  is a complete mess, with four of nine references to Slovenian articles regarding traditional names assigned to February in Central and Northern European languages, one to the Mirriam-Webster dictionary, and the other four look like astrology and related articles concerning the months "birth stone".

When we get to 25% unemployment won't the economy simply collapse meaning there is no purpose for the robot's outputs and then their owners simply turn them off?

+Danoloalcnom  We have pretty high unemployment here, too. The numbers are counted funny to hide the true levels, but there are a lot of people out of work. Half the 18 - 25's, in some places. The debt based financial system has had its day. We need to organise better distribution of resources. If we do that intelligently, robots will be a lot of help and people need not starve. It is quite possible for us to do this.

Changes this evening: child sections of a text are now listed in a drop down (rather than a space hogging list); and a much nicer commentary entry form.

Story
Tagline
cantankerous. programmatic. historical. classical.
Introduction
I am a programmer. Mostly I program in Java, and Python, but also a bit other languages like C, Objective-C, Ruby, /bin/sh and so on. Nowadays I spend a fair amount of time on REST integration and asynchronous messaging for our company's software products. At autonomous.org there are links to the software I've made which you can download. My technical blog is called "Let X=X" and it's at http://crazymcphee.net/x/ 

I am a doing a PhD in Classics and Ancient History: I have a Master of Arts in Ancient History from University of Queensland, and I'm now a PhD student at the same institution. My research topic is Livy and 1st century B.C. Latin historiographical representation of landscape in warfare. My other research interests include: representations of the city in Latin poetry and prose; Roman conceptions of boundaries, delineations and frontiers; and how the Romans embodied both physical and symbolic control of that space. I have a blog dedicated to Classics: inlustre monumentum est ... I've also got some software projects in the Digital Humanites and Digital Classics area. Please see autonomous.org for details.

I am a hobbyist photographer. You can see photos I take on Flickr. I also keep a photo blog - My New Life In The Off-world Colonies which documents my life in Brisbane since I moved here from Sydney in 2005.

I'm married to the brilliant and beautiful Dr. Lisa Bode, since 1998.

Unlike the previous reviewer I found the trench to be of an appropriately satisfactory depth. However the state of the local hotels leaves much to be desired. Also the address listed is wrong and I'm afraid that this incorrect listing cost me a lot of money with the car hire company. It was only then that I discovered - woefully too late - that my travel insurance didn't cover this type of loss. Lesson learned: make sure your insurances are all up to date BEFORE you travel.
